Release news: Lot 13 of St. George Single Malt Whiskey
August 2013 | Great news, single malt fans! Lot 13 of St. George Single Malt Whiskey has been bottled and is starting to make its way to bars, restaurants, and finer retailers across the land.
Lot 13 is an elegant blend of 14 barrels of whiskey ranging 4–13.5 years in age. 1001 Whiskies You Must Try Before You Die says that ours “might just be the best U.S. single malt available today,” so needless to say, this is a spirit worth seeking out and treasuring.
We have started to ship bottles out from the distillery via our distributors and expect Lot 13 to start hitting shelves (in about 20 states total) within the next week or so. This is a very limited release and it will sell out very quickly—in fact, Head, Hearts and Tails (the onsite store at the distillery) has already sold out of its entire allocation due to go-getters calling ahead to place pre-orders. If you’re interested in securing a bottle or two of your own, we advise you to call your favorite retailer(s) now to put in a request. If you need assistance tracking down a bottle in your area, as always, we are happy to help (info(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)stgeorgespirits.com, 510-769-1601).
Release news: St. George Dry Rye Reposado Gin
August 2013 | St. George Dry Rye Reposado Gin is a totally new release for us—and great news for whiskey fans, gin fans, and wine fans! To make this singular spirit, we rested our malty, spicy Dry Rye Gin in French and American oak wine casks that previously held Grenache rosé and Syrah.
Because rye whiskey is the base spirit of our Dry Rye Gin, it lent itself beautifully to some time in barrel (about a year and a half in this case).
The barrels came from local Blacksmith Cellars, run by winemaker Matt Smith—brother of St. George blender/distiller Dave Smith. We like to think of the resulting elixir as a gift to the gods of whiskey, gin, and wine.
Serious Eats scored a sneak peak and loved it!
Our Dry Rye Reposado Gin is a very limited release, so we expect every bottle to be snapped up quickly. Residents of AZ, CA, CO, DC, GA, IL, MA, NV, NY, WA can look to their preferred local liquor stores. Residents of other states can try to score a bottle via mail order. As always, we’d love to help to find some (info(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)stgeorgespirits.com, 510-769-1601).
