St. George 35th Anniversary Single Malt
American Single Malt
St. George Spirits // California, USA
This bottling marks the 35th anniversary of St. George Spirits, founded in 1982. It is comprised of eight barrels from their library ranging in age from 6-18 years. Included in the blend is whiskey distilled in 1997, the fourth barrel founder Jörg Rupf and master distiller Lance Winters ever laid down. Also of note is the inclusion of six French oak finishing barrels which held one of their favorite California dessert wines. Lots 12, 14, 15, and 17 are included as well as a "wild card": St George Single Malt aged in Tennessee whiskey barrels, finished in former bourbon barrels which had held their Agricole Rum. Only 771 bottles were produced, this limited edition bottling hits shelves in mid-November 2017.
