Cast of Characters
St. George Spirits began as a one-man operation, but over the last 30 years our family has grown.
We now have a knowledgable and welcoming crew of spirit guides (the friendly folks you meet when you visit us here at the distillery) and a great team of field operatives (the guys who make sure you can find our spirits in your neck of the woods).
Shown here (and described from left to right) is our full-time production, office, and tasting room crew here at the distillery:
Aurora MillerOffice assistant
Joined 2012. Gal Friday and boozy baker extraordinaire, which means she keeps us running (in both senses).
