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, 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 counterspace. 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 Single Malt Whiskey is the realization of Winters’ dream to make an elegant and expressive American single malt whiskey. After sourcing two-row barley (traditionally used in English ales), Winters roasts a portion of the barley at different roast levels in order elicit rich aromas of hazelnut and cocoa. He smokes the remainder of they barely over beech and alder, adding complexity and character to the whiskey. After mashing and fermenting the grains, the wort is distilled through a traditional, 63-gallon copper-pot still — "it’s an artisanal process that results in a better-tasting product," says Winters. After distillation, the whiskey is aged in a number of different types of wood, including refill bourbon, French oak, sherry and port casks.

Lot 16 was launched October 2016 as a part of St. George Spirits critically acclaimed Single Malt series. Together with distiller and blender Dave Smith, St. George Head Distiller Lance Winters comprised a range of whiskeys from four to 10 years to craft this edition, using a wide variety of cask types.
