St. George Distillery was founded in 1982, and have since developed into a diverse operation that makes a wide range of craft spirits. What was once a one man operation has become a diverse team of individuals that are dedicated and passionate about artisan spirits. They are very proud of all of their spirits, and will admit it did not happen overnight. They do not have a large marketing team, or advertising budget; but what they do have is passion, ideas, and access to top quality raw materials. At St George Distillery it’s not big or small that is better. It’s not old or new that is better. Better is better. With that in mind, they make the best craft spirits that they can. They do not release spirits until they believe that they are the best quality, and they can stand up to the competition, if not exceed the standards. Based on smell alone, they want to pick their products out of a lineup due to its exceptional qualities.
St George Green Chile vodka:
The vodka is made from a variety of California grown hot and sweet peppers. Jalapenos, Serranos, Habaneros, as well as Red and Yellow peppers are used to make the vodka display flavors of sweet and savory heat. Lime peel and fresh cilantro are added as well to bring more vibrancy and depth to the flavor profile.
The Green Chile vodka is made by filling the 1,500 liter still with crushed jalapeno peppers, lime peel, and a non-GMO base spirit. This is distilled through a Carter head assembly that has been layered with fresh cilantro. The other four types of peppers are then infused seperately, and blended with the jalapeno, lime cilantro mix. All of this is then filtered to remove visible impurities, leaving a mild green tint to the spirit.
Bottled at 40% alcohol by volume, the vodka tastes amazing. Fresh, sweet, and bright flavors let you know the peppers are evident in the vodka. The sweet and savory heat makes this vodka ideal for bloody mary’s or and other cocktail looking for some fresh spice.
