A bottle of St George All Purpose Vodka 750 nobackground 2020 1000

St. George All Purpose Vodka

A vodka by St. George could only feature one thing. Pears are the secret to creating a decadent vodka with luxurious texture and refreshing aromatics. Decades of distilling Bartlett pears has shown us just what this gorgeous fruit is capable of. St. George All Purpose Vodka has a distinctively lush mouthfeel with floral aromatics that shine just as much with soda as they do in a Martini.

How can one vodka be differentiated from another? By texture, that’s how. (This one is) particularly silky, rich (and) well balanced.

- Los Angeles Times

It’s perhaps no surprise one of America’s best craft distilleries also excels at vodka... Oddly refreshing, with a purity of flavor and an almost silky texture.


Mildly fruity and floral, making it a great candidate for sipping alone or in an ice-cold Martini.

The Spirit

As the tongue-in-cheek name implies, our All Purpose Vodka works in cocktails of all stripes. Spirits are our form of self-expression, and All Purpose is a showcase for demonstrating the decadent mouthfeel and supple flavor vodka can achieve with patient, precise distillation.

What’s in it?

Pears (yes, pears) are the secret to All Purpose’s velvet texture and delicate aromatics. St. George built its reputation with pear brandy, so we know how to coax the best from this standout fruit, even when distilling it to vodka proof. Using the same flavorful and aromatic pears that we do in our flagship spirit creates a vodka that is uniquely St. George. All Purpose has no overt pear flavor but it wows with its substantial body and subtle floral notes.

The Process

Distilling great vodka starts with converting the sugars found in pears to alcohol in a way that highlights their evocative terroir. We use champagne yeast for this purpose. While it’s a slower process, it gives us much more flavor to work with, ensuring that even at 95.1% ABV, we can still capture a distinctive character and aroma. We then blend the resulting distillate with a non-GMO base spirit to create a vodka with exceptional clarity and pedigree.

The Experience

All Purpose is soft and approachable, with a rich, round mouthfeel. There’s no overt pear flavor, but the inclusion of pear distillate adds gently floral top notes and the impression of subtle sweetness on the finish.

While we love sipping it chilled with a twist, it has the versatility and character to elevate all manner of cocktails. All Purpose shines in a Dirty Martini, where its lush mouthfeel compliments the savory quality of the olives. Try it with our NOLA Coffee Liqueur in a White Russian or an Espresso Martini, where it highlights the bright fruit of the Ethiopian Yirgacheffe beans we use.
