About St. George Lot. 21 Single Malt Whiskey
Lot 21, the annual release from George Spirits, is a highly coveted expression with a storied past dating back to its inception as Lot 1 in 2000. This exquisite expression is expertly crafted from 100% barley, carefully made from various roast levels two-row barley from Wisconsin (pale malt, crystal malt, chocolate malt, black patent malt) and Germany's Bamberg malt (unroasted barley smoked over beech and alder wood). The maturation process is equally impressive, involving a diverse selection of casks, including used Kentucky bourbon and Tennessee whiskey barrels, American and French oak apple brandy casks, Agricole rum casks, and California Sauternes-style casks. The 26 barrels, aged between 4.5 to 10 years, were chosen from the distillery's inventory to create a flavor profile that boasts enticing aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted nuts, orange peel, and tropical fruit on the nose, while the palate marvels in delightful bittersweet chocolate, roasted nuts, honey, and light citrus. Bottled at 43% ABV, this is an exceptional expression that truly embodies the art of distillation.

About St. George
Back in 1982, St. George Spirits was founded as an Eau de Vie distillery by Jorg Ruph in Alameda, California. One of the pioneers of the craft spirits movement, St. George Spirits was the first small American distillery since Prohibition, focusing on making brandy from Californian fruits at the beginning. Producing their first single malt in 1997, St. George Spirits expanded in 2004 and moved into a 65,000-square-foot airplane hangar. In 2007, they released the first legal American absinthe since the 1912 U.S. ban. Named everything from "the best craft distillery in America","craft whiskey of the year", and "craft whiskey producer of the year", St. George boasts a wide range of craft products including gin, eau de vies, rum, whiskey and absinthe.
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.
