    Best Craft Distillers in America | February 2014

    St. George Spirits was voted #1 craft distillery in the nation by a panel of 15 esteemed spirits judges (selected by Thrillist for being “smart people who drink a ton”). When the votes were counted, our history as “one of the old-school distillers on the list” and “one of the pioneers of the craft spirits industry”—coupled with our “range of excellent spirits”—landed us the top spot.

    As the craft spirits segment grows to include many excellent distilleries across the country, we’re honored to have both our heritage and current family of spirits recognized by so many industry professionals.
