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!
