A Wandering Spirit SOYOMBO VODKA ROAMS ACROSS LOS ANGELES by Rachel Burkons / photos by Barry Shereshevsky T here are few greater pleasures in this industry—nay, in life!—than traveling the country, bar by bar. From meeting the mixologists whose talents never cease to amaze, to checking out beautiful and innovative concepts that inspire us to push our own limits back at home, a nationwide bar crawl is a surefire way to make 2014 the best year yet. That's why THE TASTING PANEL is taking Soyombo Vodka on the road this year, meeting with roaming brand ambassadors everywhere we go, and checking out the exciting ways talented bartenders in each city are putting this unique brand in the spotlight. Soyombo is the number-oneselling super-premium vodka in Mongolia, and it's destined to make converts across the U.S. thanks to these trekking 'tenders. Named in honor of Soyombo Vodka's Mongolian heritage, our Nomadic Bartender series kicks off with L.A.'s Niki Kotantoulas, who took Soyombo to four of Hollywood's hottest mixology joints and proved that this vodka's wandering spirit will find a home on any backbar. At The Powder Room in Hollywood, The Morning Star Cocktail was on the Soyombo Vodka nomadic tour. 60  /  the tasting panel  /  january 2014 TP0114_034-65.indd 60 12/19/13 9:29 PM
