Release news: St. George California Reserve Apple Brandy
November 2015 | Our 2015 release of California Reserve Apple Brandy is coming soon! This year’s release is comprised of a field blend of apples all sourced from a single family-owned orchard within 150 miles of the distillery. This year’s release was aged in French and American wine casks, along with barrels that once held B&E Bourbon and St. George Single Malt Whiskey.
Our California distributor just picked up its order, so we expect bottles to start showing up with NorCal and SoCal spirits shops, restaurants, and bars within the next week or so. Shipments to other parts of the country will take a bit more time, but are already en route to Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Missouri, Nevada, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Washington DC, and Wisconsin—with other states to follow.
We will not be pouring the 2015 release in the distillery tasting room due to the limited nature of the bottling, but we hope that everyone out there who wants to find bottle of their own will be able to.

November 2015 | We’re already eyeing our stretchy pants, plotting our white elephant gifts, and looking forward to good times with family and friends over the holidays. If you’ll have guests visiting from out of town this season (or just some extra downtime of your own), we’d love to see you here!
Thanksgiving week: We’ll be closed this coming Monday 11/23–Thursday 11/26. These closures mean that if you’d like to visit before Thanksgiving Day, you’ll need to come by the distillery before Sunday 11/22!
Black Friday 11/27: We’ll open at noon on Black Friday and will offer distillery tours on the hour 1–6pm. Load up on turkey sandwiches, then bring the family over (21+ only, please)!
Xmas & New Year’s: We’ll be closed Monday 12/21–Friday 12/25, as well as Monday 12/28–Friday 1/1/2016. Note that these closures mean that during the year-end period, we’ll be open only on Saturday 12/26 and Sunday 12/27. Please plan accordingly!
As always, we advise booking tours and tastings in advance, particularly if you’re traveling with a pack of thirsty relatives. You can reserve your spots here.
Release news: St. George Single Malt Whiskey, Lot 15
October 2015 | Lot 15 of St. George Single Malt Whiskey has been bottled and orders are starting to come in from our distributors in various states. Our California distributor picked up its Northern California order today, so we expect bottles to land soon with local spirits shops, restaurants, and bars. Shipments are also en route to Illinois, Massachusetts, Tennessee, and Wisconsin. Southern California, Florida, Missouri, Washington, and other states will follow.
Bottles of Lot 15 will reach different parts of the country at different times based on when our distributors pick up their orders and how long each shipment takes. We’ll know where to find bottles only once we receive order information directly from our distributor partners. If you’re interested in finding a bottle near you, email us with your city and state, and we’ll let you know as soon as we have info for your region.
We will be releasing only 3,000 bottles of Lot 15, and the unfortunate fact is that not everyone who wants a bottle will be able to find one. Ours has been one of the most respected and sought-after single malts among American labels for awhile now, and demand is stronger than ever. Last year, our Lot 14 release was named Craft Whiskey of the Year by Whisky Advocate and St. George Spirits was named Craft Whisky Producer of the Year by Whisky Magazine—which means that even more whiskey lovers will be clamoring for a bottle of their own this year.
Due to the limited nature of the release, we will not be pouring tastes of Lot 15 in the distillery tasting room. We still hope that you’ll be able to find a pour or a bottle of your own near you. Thanks, as always, for loving it so much.
Release news: Dry Rye Reposado Gin
June 2015 | Get ready for the second coming of our barrel-aged Dry Rye Reposado Gin! You snapped up every bottle we released back in 2013, so we know you’re more than ready for a refill. Need a refresher? This offering to the gods of wine, whiskey, and gin is made by resting our malty, spicy Dry Rye Gin in French and American oak wine casks. Because rye whiskey is the base spirit, it lends itself beautifully to some time in barrel (just over a year in this case). The result is a slightly floral spirit with notes of spiced fruitcake.
Shipments are underway to our California distributor, as well as to our distributors in about 25 other states—which means bottles should be landing near you very soon! Please watch our Facebook and Twitter feeds for release updates. And as always, we’d love to help you land a bottle of your own! If you need assistance, please let us know (findmebooze(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)stgeorgespirits.com).
Today is St. George’s Day!
April 23, 2015 | We’ll be marking the occasion by adding a very special pour to our tasting menu: Lot 14 of St. George Single Malt Whiskey. As far as we know, bottles of Lot 14 are sold out nationally (and will not be available for purchase here at the distillery), but this is a chance to taste the spirit that Whisky Advocate named Craft Whisky of the Year!
•Lot 14 will be available to taste only on Thursday, April 23 during regular tasting room hours.
•California law limits distilleries to pouring a maximum of six 1/4 oz pours per person per day, so tastings on April 23 will include one 1/4 oz pour of Lot 14 plus five other pours from our current tasting menu.
•Reservations are recommended! Book here.
AWARD: CRAFT WHISKY PRODUCER OF THE YEAR (GLOBAL)
March 2015| St. George Spirits was named the Craft Whisky Producer of the Year at Whisky Magazine’s 2015 Icons of Whisky global awards in London—following up on our win in the same category at the Icons of Whisky awards for America last summer. More information about this tremendous honor is here.
Launch update: St. George vodkas
March 2015 | Our three new St. George vodkas are starting to show up at bars, restaurants, and spirits shops across the country! We have officially launched in Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, and Wisconsin—with more states coming soon.
If you’re looking for any of our vodkas in a state we’ve already launched (or would like rollout information for another state), please email us (findmebooze(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)stgeorgespirits.com) or give us a call (510-769-1601).
Release news: St. George Vodkas are here!
All three vodkas are available to taste here at the distillery tasting room as of today! We are excited to have you come by to taste, but as always, we advise booking ahead before making the trip over here.
Our California distributor also now has all three of our new vodkas in stock, which means that NorCal and SoCal bars, restaurants, and spirits shops can start placing orders. Good news for Californians, who should start to see bottles pop up all over the state very soon!
To make these three vodkas, we distill fresh produce and fruit on our copper stills using the same artisanal methods we rely on to make our flagship brandies and fruit liqueurs. Combining these distillates with a non-GMO base spirit results in three unique spirits that stand proudly among the rest of the St. George portfolio.
All three new vodkas have also started rolling out to other parts of the country. Orders are on their way already to Arizona, Colorado, DC, Illinois, Florida, Kentucky, Maryland, Nevada, and Washington, with many other states to follow shortly. Once our distribution partners receive their orders and start making deliveries, we’ll be able to help you find them.
Release news: St. George vodkas coming soon
January 2014 | Ready for another round? We are!
If good things come in threes and good things come to those who wait, then you’re going to love our three new vodkas!
Get ready for the upcoming release of:
St. George All Purpose Vodka
St. George Green Chile Vodka
St. George California Citrus Vodka
Bottling has begun, but we won’t be rolling out the new vodkas until all three have been bottled and orders have come in through our distributors (likely in late February for California, March for the rest of the country).
