St. George Spirits of Alameda, California, will continue hosting a series of virtual tours and tastings this summer. Master distiller Lance Winters and head distiller Dave Smith will be hosting live broadcasts from the distillery every other Wednesday at 5 p.m. PDT for the remainder of July and August. They kicked things off already with a gin tasting (available on IGTV here if you missed it) and a behind-the-scenes distillery tour (available here). Upcoming episodes will include:
July 22: Brandies & Liqueurs
A guided tasting of St. George’s flagship Pear Brandy, Raspberry Brandy, Spiced Pear Liqueur, Raspberry Liqueur & NOLA Coffee Liqueur
August 5: Vodka
A master class on vodka & guided tasting of St. George All Purpose, California Citrus & Green Chile Vodka
August 19: Botanicals A-Z
A guided tasting—from anise to zedoary—of Absinthe Verte & Bruto Americano
Tastings will stream live at instagram.com/stgeorgespirits at 5 p.m. PDT, and all broadcasts will also be saved to IGTV for later viewing.
The distillery also announced that its spirts are now available in three new states and in Ontario. The distillery’s products are now available in Ohio (searchable via Ohio Liquor); in stores in Montgomery County, MD; and via special order in North Carolina. Folks in Ontario can also order Absinthe Verte and Terroir Gin via the LCBO. If you need assistance, email St. George Spirits.
