Instagram Live Summer Tasting Series
Broadcasting live from the distillery, master distiller Lance Winters and head distiller Dave Smith will lead a series of virtual guided tastings every other Wednesday in July and August. The series will air at 5pm PDT on Instagram Live, so mark your calendars for the upcoming broadcast and tune in with whichever of our spirits you have on hand—or stock up on the full complement before each tasting begins. Lance and Dave will take questions live during each broadcast, so come ready to interact!
July 22 | Brandy and liqueur tasting
A guided tasting of our flagship Pear Brandy, Raspberry Brandy, Spiced Pear Liqueur, Raspberry Liqueur, and NOLA Coffee Liqueur. During this tasting session, Lance and Dave will speak to our roots as eau de vie makers, the differences between brandies and liqueurs, how we source ingredients, our production processes, and more.
August 5 | Vodka tasting
A masterclass on vodka and guided tasting of St. George All Purpose, California Citrus, and Green Chile Vodka. Tune in to learn about this often-misunderstood (and misrepresented) spirit and why we feel that our three expressions are worthy of the St. George name. Even vodka skeptics will want to tune in to this one!
SANITIZER AVAILABLE FOR CURBSIDE PICKUP
July 2020 | Since we started making hand and surface sanitizer in March, we’ve been able to support local first responders, food banks, shelters, and other vulnerable populations with sanitizer donations.
While we still welcome hearing from non-profits in need of sanitizer donations, our FDA-approved liquid spray sanitizer is now also available for purchase in five-gallon containers and larger.
If you’re part of a business or organization wishing to make a 5+ gallon purchase—or a non-profit with a critical need—please email us for more information and to schedule curbside pickup.
(Unfortunately, we're not able to sell smaller quantities of sanitizer for personal use, as we only have essential personnel onsite for production and to fulfill bulk orders by appointment. Thank you for understanding!)
WHERE TO FIND OUR SPIRITS NOW
June 2020 | Bottle shops across the country have partnered with companies that offer same-day spirits delivery—allowing you to stay home and have our spirits brought directly to your doorstep. To find out what’s available for same-day delivery in your area, try searching with Drizly, Instacart, Minibar, or Saucey.
Our spirits locator can also help you search for bottle shops near you (many of which also offer delivery or curbside pickup). If you need further assistance, please email us and we'll do our best to point you in the right direction.
A fun read for whiskey fans, with a nod for our Baller Single Malt: "When I discovered Baller I thought I’d fallen into some weird syncretic whiskey dimension…"
The TTB has updated the Standard of Identity for vodka—no longer defining it as “without distinctive character, aroma, taste or color.” Lance weighs in on why we think this is a good thing.
