Shaking up the cocktail scene at RauDZ ?

RauDZ launches their own Gin!

We cannot tell a lie – The Truth is out and it’s ‘The Whole Truth’.  RauDZ Creative Concepts is launching their own craft gin, ‘the Whole Truth’ in collaboration with award-winning distillery, Okanagan Spirits.

‘The Whole Truth’ gin was created to pair with the classic gin and tonic cocktail ‘The Truth’, a drink featured on the opening day cocktail list of RauDZ Regional Table back in  Spring 2009.  It’s been a hit for the past 10 years and now with the creation of The Whole Truth gin, it has found it’s perfect pairing.

In keeping with the RauDZ ‘eat local’ philosophy, you are also ‘drinking local’ with the botanicals found in this custom gin.  RauDZ Creative Concepts ‘The Whole Truth’ Gin is cucumber-forward with florals in the background and contains mock orange, a native BC shrub, that was hand foraged by Okanagan Spirits’ Tyler Dyck from Poplar Point, at the foot of Knox Mountain, less than three km from the door of the restaurant. Mint, cucumber, lemon verbena and orris root- the root stock of an iris, each add refreshing, cooling notes that are perfect for gin and tonics.

This farm-to-flask gin is available exclusively at RauDZ Regional Table, micro bar & bites, Sunny’s Modern Diner, and Terrafina at Hester Creek by RauDZ.

Although originally conceived for ‘The Whole Truth’ cocktail, Wes Hunter, Beverage Operations has put his creative bar skills to the test, developing a custom cocktail for each of the RauDZ Creative Concepts restaurants highlighting this new gin.  Terrafina at Hester Creek by RauDZ will feature the gin in a white Negroni with white vermouth, Sunny’s Modern Diner pairs it with citrus and prosecco for a breakfast bubbly and micro bar & bites serves it in their twist on a
Moscow Mule.

‘The Whole Truth’ gin by RauDZ Creative Concepts will launch on the cocktail menus at RauDZ Regional Table, micro bar & bites, Sunny’s Modern Diner and Terrafina at Hester Creek by RauDZ on Thursday, April 11.

Cleavers & Cocktails : The Revival Round 4

Cleavers & Cocktails pits the chef and the bartender from two restaurants against each other to create both a cocktail and two plates that must pair. A food and bar black box will be provided at the beginning of Heat#1 with the culinary item and the bar item included in the final dish and cocktail. A new black box item (surprise!!!) will be provided at the beginning of Heat #2 and that must also be used in the final cocktail and plate.

At the end of each heat, the competitor’s efforts will be evaluated by our judges AND small samples of the dish and cocktail will be distributed to all guests. Guests will help determine the winner of the evening. For this competition, it’s Chef Darren Kashin and Bartender Cole Geisler from Craft Beer Market vs. Chef Dan Carkner and Bartender Aric Pihrag from Jack’s Pizza and Liquor.


Tickets are $35 and available exclusively on EventBrite. Cleavers & Cocktails is always a sell-out so get your tickets early.

Doors open at micro at 7:30 pm, competition starts at 8:00 pm.
