One of the most interesting single malts we've tasted in a long time. First encountered at a trade tasting more than two years ago, this proved to be an elusive bottling to get our hands on. Made with American barley and matured in ex-bourbon and French oak barrels for around 4 years before finishing for a few additional years in casks seasoned with Japanese plum wine (Umeshu) this whiskey has a bit of everything, hints of campfire, waves of candied fruits, umami and a touch of briny goodness. You'll find notes of cocoa, sarsaparilla, malt and oak layered beautifully from the palate through the finish. Just a stunning bottle at an amazing price!

In the 30 years since St. George Spirits was founded, we have grown from a dedicated eau de vie distillery into a diverse operation that makes a range of craft spirits. What was then a bare-bones production facility with tasting tables jerry-rigged on sawhorses, is now a 65,000-square-foot hangar with a spectacular tasting room, laboratory, and a lineup of the most beautiful pot stills in the industry. It's a lot to be proud of. But it didn't happen overnight. They've grown slowly over the years, hiring one person at a time, adding one copper still at a time. We don't have a marketing team, an advertising budget, or a blimp. What we do have are passion, ideas, and access to superlative raw materials. The craft distillation movement has grown with them over the last three decades, and they've been joined by hundreds of new distilleries across the country. As the landscape has changed, there's been a lot of talk about established spirits brands vs. newcomers. Big brands vs. small brands. The way we see it, it's not that small or big is better. It's not that new or old is better. Better is better. And with that in mind, they have dedicated themselves to making the best spirits they can. They pledge to craft quintessential spirits to delight hedonists and genius bartenders alike-and when you taste our spirits, we hope that the character and quality of what's in your glass will convey to you what we're all about.
