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 (findusbooze(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).

Award: Craft Whiskey Producer of the Year (America)
September 2014 | Whisky Magazine’s 2015 Icons of Whisky America awards have selected St. George Spirits as the Craft Whiskey Producer of the Year. For more information about the awards, as well as a full list of nominees and winners, see here.
Release news: Lot 14 of St. George Single Malt Whiskey
September 2014 | At last, Lot 14 of our single malt is on its way out of the distillery! Our California distributor just picked up its NorCal order today, which means that bottles should start showing up with select local spirits shops, restaurants, and bars soon. Shipments are also en route to Southern California, Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Louisiana, Nevada, and Wisconsin, with other states to follow shortly.
Local folks: We’ve gotten word from Heads, Hearts & Tails (the store located here at the distillery) that they already sold their entire allocation of Lot 14 (which was quite limited) to pre-orders, which means they will not have any more bottles available to purchase. We haven’t heard of any other retailers accepting pre-orders, so we wish you luck finding a bottle as inventory starts to land on local shelves.
Please remember, this spirit is extraordinarily limited and precious—just over 3,000 bottles to share with you and every other whiskey freak on the planet! If you’re able to land a bottle, we hope you’ll enjoy every sip.
Release news: California Reserve apple brandy & agricole rum
September 2014 | Our new releases of St. George California Reserve Apple Brandy and California Reserve Agricole Rum are in the home stretch. We’ll be bottling both spirits before the month is out, which means they should start showing up locally sometime in October, and in other states thereafter. If you missed the last newsletter or need a refresher on these spirits, you can find details here.
As always, when we have more specifics on release dates, we’ll share the info via our Facebook page and Twitter feed; if you want to be among the first to know, please follow us online!
