About St. George Breaking & Entering American Whiskey

Founded in 1982 by German-born Jörg Rupf, St. George Spirits is one of the oldest craft distilleries in the United States.  The distillery, housed in an old World War II airplane hangar on a former naval base on the edge of San Francisco, is home to Lance Winters, nuclear engineer, mad scientist and St. George's master distiller, and Dave Smith, St. George's chief blender.

Winters and Smith, who are widely-known for experimenting with different types of spirits, have a laboratory dominated by a 10-liter test still, which sits adjacent to the glass beakers and graduated cylinders that cover every inch of their counter space. Next to the dusty chalkboards caked with equations for the conversion of sugar to alcohol and intricate diagrams of molecular structures are bottles of experimental whiskeys, vodkas and even an aging balsamic vinegar (it's 14 years old already).

After 30 years of producing their own spirits, St. George Spirits has developed a wicked hobby — barrel thieving. Breaking & Entering American Whiskey is the second release under St. George’s Breaking & Entering label, following their bourbon. B&E American Whiskey brings together bourbon and rye that head distiller/blender Dave Smith sourced and then blended with some of our own California malt whiskey. The blend brings together four grains—rye, corn, barley, wheat—with no one grain being dominant.

To make Breaking & Entering Whiskey, Smith sourced individual casks of rye and bourbon from distilleries in Kentucky and Tennessee and brought them back to St. George's distillery in California. He then blended the sourced barrels with some choice barrels from their in-house whiskey program to create a balanced, expressive, all-American whiskey.

About American Whiskey

There are two main representatives of the American whiskey family, bourbon, and rye, but some other spirits don't fall into those two strictly regulated categories.


There's equally strictly regulated American single malt, made from 100% malted barley, Tennessee whiskey, essentially bourbon filtered through maple charcoal and aged in new charred oak barrels.


And then there's moonshine, a high proof (150- 170 proof) distilled spirit mainly made out of corn which gained popularity during the prohibition.


Check out our impressive selection of American single malts, or find your new favorite in our rich whisk(e)y selection, and get familiarized with what the world has to offer.
