    St. George Spirits’ new NOLA coffee liqueur pays tribute to New Orleans | March 2014

    Though the LA Times was reluctant to try our new NOLA Coffee Liqueur, its “fresh and sophisticated” flavor won them over and resulted in this rave review: “It carries the taste of very good dark-roast coffee to an absurd length. By that I mean the taste of coffee lingers on the palate, along with notes of hazelnut and the earthy bitterness of chicory.”

    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.
