St. George Spirits

St. George SpiritsSt. George Spirits is a beloved, local producer of some of the most delicious spirits we have tasted. And, we hope you get a chance to explore their exciting range of products. A craft distillery located in Alameda, California, they were started in 1982 by Jörg Rupf as an eau-de-vie distillery. Much has happened since those days, and they have grown into a large operation with a world-class distilling team in a massive, former Naval hangar.

St. George Spirits is passionate about what they produce—and everything they release is sublime. We cannot recommend their products more strongly.

Here is what we have in the store:

To make these three vodkas, St. George Spirits distills fresh produce and fruit on copper stills using the same artisanal methods relied on to make their flagship brandies and fruit liqueurs. We carry both individual 750-ML bottles and a set of three, 110-ML bottles.

All-Purpose Vodka
Made from 100% American grain and fruit, the “all-purpose” vodka is soft, lithe, and clean; finishing with a rounded mouthfeel that is both simultaneously refreshing and gentle. The supple weight comes from Bartlett pears, which are distilled to 95% to create the expression.

California Citrus Vodka
Infused with California Bergamot, Valencia, and Seville oranges, the bright citrus flavor is a lovely, elegant expression. The oranges are both infused and distilled in separate batches before being blended together to create the final magic.

Green Chile Vodka
Made from California jalapenos, habaneros, serranos, and both yellow and red bell peppers, each pepper is actually infused and distilled separately before being blended together. The still is also packed with cilantro and a bit of lime peel to add extra brightness and flavor. This incredible flavor will change the way you think about Bloody Marys forever!

For distillers with imagination and a creative bent, gin is a playground that begs for experimentation in both ingredients and technique. As St. George Spirits explored the edges of this delightful category, they realized they needed to make at least three gins to fully express their love for this spirit! We carry both individual 750-ML bottles and a set of three, 110-ML bottles.

Terroir Gin
Forest-driven and earthy, Terroir is a profoundly aromatic gin with a real sense of place. It is a spirit that conveys the love of the monumental groves of trees, moist and misty glens, and sun-baked chaparral of favorite California parklands. Sip it and be transported to groves of Douglas fir, California bay laurel, and coastal sage.

Botanivore Gin
Botanivore, our “botanical eater,” is comprised of 19 different botanicals working in concert. Think of a meadow in bloom—herbaceous, fresh, and elegant. What’s in it?  Angelica root, bay laurel, bergamot peel, black peppercorn, caraway, cardamom, cilantro, cinnamon, citra hops, coriander, dill seed, fennel seed, ginger, juniper berries, lemon peel, lime peel, orris root, Seville orange peel, star anise!

Dry Rye Gin
A base of 100% pot-distilled rye makes this a gin for whiskey lovers—and for gin im-purists willing to take a walk on the rye side. Think genever, then think again—and brace yourself for a gin with structure, spice, and an impossibly rich mouthfeel.

St. George Spirits Fruit Liqueurs are naturally sweet and velvety on the palate. In cocktails, both liqueurs are fruit-forward without being cloying. They are incredibly well-reviewed in the foodie community.

St. George Raspberry Liqueur
A show-stopper. This is what all raspberry liqueurs aspire to, with a luxurious mouthfeel and just the right balance between sweet and tart. St. George Raspberry Liqueur is exquisite all on its own as a digestif—and the perfect complement to anything chocolate. (Try keeping a bottle at the breakfast table for drizzling on waffles.)

St. George Spiced Pear Liqueur
Both elegant and earthy, this liqueur has all the complexity of a perfectly ripe Bartlett pear. Cinnamon and clove add a warm touch of spice. St. George Pear Spiced Liqueur has a crisp pear perfume and a long, lush finish with a hint of spice. Sip it alongside a cheese plate or pair it with pork, duck, or other meats ending in the letter K.
