Lot 14 of St. George Single Malt Whiskey now shipping
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.
Updates on upcoming new releases: aged California apple brandy, aged California agricole rum, St. George vodka
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!
In the meantime, our team is still hard at work developing our new line of St. George vodkas, which we hope to have in your glass before Thanksgiving. Stay tuned…
