St. George Single Malt Named Craft Whiskey of the Year
December 2014 | Whisky Advocate has named St. George Single Malt Whiskey as Craft Whiskey of the Year. In bestowing this award, Lew Bryson write: “Delicate fruit, nuts, and sweet malt combine like a perfect pastry in the nose. Add a bit of unsweetened chocolate on the palate, finishing with a lingering reminiscence of every bit of flavor, and you have a beautifully integrated whiskey that is unmistakably St. George.”
A huge honor! For more, see here.
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.
