The GOODS from Bittered Sling

Vancouver, BC | Each year, costumed dancers and exuberant entertainers line the streets of New Orleans, LA and Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago to celebrate “Mardi Gras” and “Carnival”. Traditionally held in the days leading up to Lent, these celebrations are inspired by centuries-old masquerade parties and attract millions of curious partygoers both in these regions and around the world, including Toronto’s summer “Caribana” Festival. As contemporary cocktail culture continues to charge full-steam ahead, August’s Bittered Sling Bistro captures the heart and soul of these festivals, and honours their important contributions to the modern cocktail scene. Join us draped in festive beads and face paint, while we rejoice in music and merriment during two dinners sponsored by Campari America, Wild Turkey Bourbon, Bittered Sling and the Canadian Professional Bartender’s Association.

About Bittered Sling

Bottles-and-shakers

Bittered Sling celebrates the collaboration of chef Jonathan Chovancek and mixologist and sommelier Lauren Mote, who have contributed a combined 30 years of professional experience, knowledge and innovation to the Canadian food and beverage industry.

In 2010, Mote and Chovancek launched Vancouver-based boutique catering and events company Kale & Nori Culinary Arts — the predecessor to Bittered Sling — and quickly carved out a niche both locally and internationally for their unique products, dynamic and diverse cuisine and specialty cocktail creations. In 2013, Kale & Nori was singled out as Producer/Supplier of the Year at the 24th Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards for its brand of Bittered Sling Extracts.

Bittered Sling Extracts is a retail line of high-quality, small-batch bitters and extracts that provides palate, plate and potion with a subtle-yet-exciting fusion of homegrown ingredients and flavours. With aromatic labels such as Orange and Juniper, Plum and Rootbeer and Clingstone Peach, Bittered Sling underscores a singular and delicious irony that while all of their bitters are extracts, not all of their extracts are bitter. By the dash or the drop, each creation offers an intricate range of complex flavours that perfectly accentuates food, spirits and even sparkling water.

Twice a month over a six-month span, Mote and Chovancek host their popular and perennially sold-out Bittered Sling Bistro events at the Legacy Liquor Store in Olympic Village. A friendly competition between some of the region’s best bartenders now heading into its fourth season, each edition of the Bistro offers guests a feature spirit tasting accented by Bittered Sling Extracts and an indulgent three-course menu inspired by each particular spirit’s wide range of notes and character.
