CocktailSafe in Canada's Globe and Mail Newspaper

Subscribers can access a story about CocktailSafe in the Globe and Mail (the story is paywalled). 

The article covers things like tobacco and activated charcoal with quotes from Trevor Kallies and Darcy O’Neil, and also some information about homemade ingredients in different parts of Canada: 

Some cocktail experimentation doesn’t fall under any regulatory regime. Canadian bartenders say provincial liquor inspectors and local restaurant health authorities rarely inquire into cocktail techniques and ingredients. In some jurisdictions, including Ontario, Saskatchewan and British Columbia, infusions are permitted, within certain guidelines (for example, B.C. advises licensees that the infusion ingredients should be “spices, herbs, fruits, vegetables, candy or other substances intended for human consumption”). In Alberta, however, regulations specifically forbid “adulterating” liquor in this way, and that’s a sore point among some bartenders there.

Three More Media Mentions for CocktailSafe

CocktailSafe has been mentioned in more media, according to my Google news alerts. 

The San Francisco Chronicle mentioned the website in a round-up of what Wine Editor Esther Mobley is reading

Cocktails & Bars also includes mention of CocktailSafe in their news round-up

Cocktailsandbars

 

And the new April print issue of Wine & Spirits magazine misprinted the website domain as CocktailSafety.org, so as of today both that domain and CocktailSafety.com point to this website. I'm not mad about it - I probably should have made that the main domain name in the first place!
