The Sporting Life with St. George Spirits

Single Malt Whiskey

What I love about going to Sporting Life meetings is getting to try new (to me) spirits. St. George Spirits sponsored the May. As I previously noted, I was familiar with the St. George absinthe but can’t recall tasting their spirits individually. After tasting and loving the St. George Terroir gin, I was eager to try the others.

At the meeting, I got to try the Single Malt Whiskey which I thought tasted a bit chocolately. It was explained to me that “Evil Genius” (founder and distiller) Lance Winters was a beer brewer before he became a spirits distiller. Ah, that explains the botanicals and quite the nose on many of his spirits.

I tasted the Dry Rye Gin and then sipped the Dry Fashioned (St. George Dry Rye gin, grapefruit and lemon peel). It was really perfect.

And what about the Bontanivore Gin? I couldn’t leave St. George’s third gin out. I had it with the Singapore Sling (St. George Bontanivore gin, Benedictine, Cherry Herring, lemon, pineapple). It was a sunny day and the perfect libation on the patio.

I really must make it up to the Bay Area soon to visit the distillery.
