RELEASE NEWS: ST. GEORGE SINGLE MALT WHISKEY, LOT 20
October 2020 | Lot 20 of St. George Single Malt Whiskey has begun rolling out, and we know there are lots of whiskey fans out there hoping to find a bottle of their own. As demand for our whiskey continues to grow year after year, we expect interest in Lot 20 to eclipse availability, but hope that this information will be helpful in your search.
If you're in California...
Bottles have just begun landing with spirits shops, restaurants, and bars in both NorCal and SoCal, and bottles will continue to pop up throughout the state as we progress into the holiday season.
Our tasting room remains closed for the foreseeable future, so Lot 20 will not be available to taste here at the distillery.
Since we don’t have access to retailers' real-time inventory, we aren’t able to pinpoint where and when bottles will be available. (If you’re looking for any of our other spirits, however, our spirits locator can help!)
As always, we suggest you start your search by contacting your favorite brick-and-mortar spirits specialty shops to let them know of your interest. As a reminder: The onsite shop at the distillery (Heads, Hearts & Tails) is a separate business, so it’s best to contact them directly with questions about inventory. You could also try larger chain retailers that specialize in or carry spirits (such as BevMo, Total Wine, and Whole Foods); with past releases, it has typically taken a bit longer for bottles to reach larger stores than independent retailers.
If you're in another state...
Lot 20 has started shipping out from the distillery to our distributors all over the country and will be rolling out nationally soon, continuing into the holiday season. If past releases are any indication, bottles in other states won’t fly off the shelves quite as fast as in California. As always, reaching out to your favorite local spirits specialty shops is always a good first step!
Wherever you are, we appreciate your interest. If you require additional assistance, please contact us and we’ll try to help further if we can.
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.
