St. George Spirits Tour
In 1982 a young German lawyer spurred a revolution. He brought distilling techniques handed down from his grandfather in Alsace together with California’s best farm produce and began distilling eau de vie in the San Francisco Bay Area. In the thirty years since, he built up a small crew that has expanded the range of production into liqueuer, whisky, vodka, gin, rum, agave spirit and America’s first new absinthe.
Climb on our bus for a 60-minute ride up to Naval Air Station Alameda and St. George Spirits, one of America’s pioneer craft distilling companies. Upon arrival at an aircraft hangar that formerly housed the “Firebirds” Attack Squadron 304 you’ll enjoy “Cocktail Flight School,” a private guided group tasting in one of the hangar’s many crew ready rooms.
There’s no way we can guarantee you’ll see any Mythbusters crashing things the other side of the parking lot fence, but we are working on some more achievable surprises for those who join us on the tour. Cocktail Flight School is limited to 30 people, so get your registration in early
