2nd Annual Clam Slam: The Kootenay Caesar Showdown

The 2nd Annual Clam Slam saw 8 of the Kootenay’s best create and design their own take on Canada’s favourite Sunday Drink. Eight different types of caesars with eight different delicate, delicious and decadent types of toppings to go with it. Who really needs dinner when you have a meal in your cup! This year, two distilleries joined us with their creation combining their own brand of booze with some traditional Clamato magic.

The judges panel included the most qualified Caesar Aficionados, including the combined palate of a michelin-starred chef! The Honorary Judge Winner was local Darren Rossi, who dressed in style, complete with a diamond studded grill… yep GRILL. Our elite judges marked scores for each caesar first on blind tasting and then on presentation. After the long deliberation by our expert panel, The Vault Sports Lounge came in first place, followed by Rafters Lounge, and then The Flying Steam Shovel.

Thanks everyone who came out to make this 2nd annual event a blast!
