I recently found this very interesting article on Cool Hunting about St. George Spirits, an artisan distiller down in Alameda, CA. St. George is doing a lot of really fun and interesting stuff.
They’re making the first, I think, U.S. made agricole Rum.
They’re making their own “Tequila”, very cool. It can’t be called Tequila because they aren’t making it in mexico, but they are using 100% agave to make it. I don’t know enough about the processes they are using, but I would be very interested to try the range!
Also interesting is that they are making three different gins, with completely different botanicals and profiles – Botanivore Gin, Terroir Gin, and Dry Rye Gin.
St. George also happens to be the producer of Hangar One Vodka, which you are more likely to be familiar with.
