Crafted from raspberries you could find in the dark, St. George Raspberry Brandy is intensely ripe, lush, and focused. With notes of summer grass and a touch of minerality, it reveals flavors you didn’t know raspberry had.
Availability: We weren’t able to make raspberry brandy this year because heat spikes damaged the raspberry crop

Raspberries are amazingly expressive. Our raspberry brandy aims to transport you to the bramble with a complete olfactory experience of the fruit, seeds, sun and soil.
We manage to fit almost 40 pounds of perfectly ripe Meeker raspberries into a single bottle of our raspberry brandy. Why Meeker? The variety has extraordinary aromatics which dazzle the nose once they have been distilled down to their essence. We are so particular about our raspberries that if we can’t find fruit that meets our exacting standards, we won’t distill raspberry brandy that year. For more on that, please read here.
Just as with our pear brandy, we begin by sourcing the most flavorful and characteristic raspberries we can find and then distill them at their prime. We use the whole fruit in its entirety in a deliberate effort to maximize the most elemental flavors and aromas. We never add sugar or anything artificial, so all you get is the honest essence of the raw material. While our stills (custom-made for us by the Arnold Holstein Company) demand expertise and keen judgment, they give us extraordinary command over each distillation run. Done right (our minimum standard!), a single still run is all it takes to capture the essence of this beautiful fruit.
Europeans traditionally sip unaged fruit brandy as a digestif. We’re all for that!
But at 40% alcohol and with no residual sugar, our wildly aromatic raspberry brandy is a bartender’s secret weapon—enhancing any cocktail that calls for vivid fruit flavor without additional sweetness.
