With Tales of the Cocktail less than a month away, it’s only fitting that Issue 18 of Mutineer Magazine be filled to the brim with cocktail goodness and that’s exactly what we’ve done. Spirits, cocktails, brand ambassadors, mixologists – we have it all and then some. Cocktails not your thing? Don’t worry, we have you covered too.
The Secret Lives of Brand Ambassadors
As three of the best can attest, spirit and spirits go hand-in-hand at these intense-but-rewarding jobs.
Everybody has his or her favorite fine beverage, but only a handful of us are tasked to live and breathe the product 24/7. Such is life for a brand ambassador. No three brand ambassadors work harder than Juan Coronado, Craig Vaught and Charlotte Voisey, and contributor Matt Villano recently chatted with each of them to get the inside scoop. Interestingly, all three got their starts on the bottle side of the bar.
Spartacus Miximus: Behind the Scenes of a Global Cocktail Competition

Join Kropf as he takes you through the competition, the competitors and their world class cocktails.
Drinking and Drawing: The Artwork of Jill DeGroff
Jill DeGroff has spent more than a few hours inside every manner of saloon, speakeasy, bar and lounge while roaming until the wee hours of the morning. To most, the places would start to blend together, but DeGroff has found a muse in these dens of drink. The characters and stories have captivated her, and she has captured them in both word and portraiture. In the second book in her series, Lush Life: Portraits From The Bar, DeGroff features Bon Bivants, ne’er-do-wells and all manner of folks in between.
It all began with a lack of choice. A lack of choice fueled by decades of oppression, a need for more and the desire to have a say in life’s most simplistic decisions. Decisions which were as seemingly basic as the quality of leaves that infuse your teapot. In this article, Mutineer Food Editor Erin Jimcosky gives you an in-depth look at the incredible story behind Dobra Tea.
