THRILLIST NAMES ST. GEORGE BEST CRAFT DISTILLER
February 2014 | St. George Spirits was voted #1 craft distiller in America 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. See the results here.
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.
Release news: new St. George brandies and liqueurs
December 2013 | We distilled 120,000 pounds of organic, dry-farmed Bartlett pears this autumn—so we hope y’all are thirsty! Coming soon to a glass near you: St. George Pear Brandy and Spiced Pear Liqueur.
Pear brandy is actually our flagship spirit—the inspiration for establishing St. George Spirits back in 1982—but we’re about to relaunch our line of brandies and liqueurs (formerly known by the name Aqua Perfecta) under the St. George banner. The new brandies and liqueurs will be available in 750ml bottles (priced smart for bar use) and 200ml bottles (just right for experimentation at home and gift-giving).
Also on their way: our new St. George Raspberry Brandy and Raspberry Liqueur.
Our new brandies and liqueurs will start popping up in California just in time for the holidays and will roll out nationally in the new year.
Excited as we are? Read more about our flagship/brand-spankin’-new fruit spirits here and get in touch if you’d like to find a bottle near you!
