JOE FISH MIXOLOGIST TRUDY THOMAS

Trudy Thomas brings mixology mastery to Rosebud Restaurants with a unique combination of discipline and creative flair gleaned from diverse experiences, including stints in the corporate world (Director of Beverage at JW Marriott) and four years under the chef-driven direction of Wolfgang Puck. This experience, combined with her Kentucky roots and unrelenting love for bourbon, make Trudy a unique force in the beverage industry. Dubbed the “First Daughter of Bourbon” by industry insiders, Trudy’s passion and expertise extends to wine, craft beer and whimsical craft cocktails that have a solid respect for spirits and the fresh ingredients that allow their flavor and character to shine through. Few beverage directors can boast mastery in both spirits and wine, and Trudy sets herself apart in that she is certified as both a mixologist and specialist in wine. She has selected 300 bottles for Joe Fish, making it Rosebud Restaurant’s first world class wine list. Trudy has also served as a judge at both Chicago’s Beverage Tasting Institute and at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition as a wine and spirits judge.

Mixologist Trudy Thomas

She brings her unique style and wide-reaching expertise to Joe Fish, where the mixology program is an essential component of this next-generation Rosebud Restaurant concept.
