About St. George California Citrus VodkaFounded 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, mad scientist and St. George's master distiller.
Winters, who is widely-known for experimenting with different types of spirits, has a laboratory dominated by a 10-liter test still in addition to the glass beakers and graduated cylinders that cover every inch of 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 whiskies, vodkas and even an aging balsamic vinegar (it's 14 years old already).
St. George California Citrus Vodka is a newly-launched vodka from one of America’s most creative craft distilleries. The distillery sources fresh Valencia, Seville and bergamot oranges from local farmers and ranchers, infusing the flavors into three separate non-GMO spirits. The three distillates are then blended together and filtered to remove visible impurities before bottling.
As a result, St. George California Citrus Vodka has a lemony scent on the nose, which leads to a robust palate filled with bright notes of orange peel and pomelo. The finish is slightly sweet, with flavors reminiscent of orange groves and other citrus plants.
The Spirit Journal called St. George California Citrus Vodka “a rare gem of a citrus flavored vodka... nothing short of brilliant.”
Historians are not clear on the exact origin of vodka since different sources link its beginning to both Russia and Poland. But one thing is clear: this somewhat simple spirit, first used as a medicinal concoction, has become one of the most versatile drinks in the world.
It can be distilled from any type of grains, potatoes, or even grapes worldwide. Due to its simplicity, this unaged spirit's main flavor factor is the quality of water and the ingredients used in the distillation process.
Primarily used in cocktails, vodka can also stand its ground when enjoyed neat.
