What kind of hung up 12 stepper doesn’t
like to drink vodka? Not me. When I heard about the new tasting room at St.
George Spirits I bellied up…
They pour tastes of all of their products with the purchase of a $10 tasting glass. When you are done sampling their wares, hop over to the counter by the door and buy some bottles to take home.
The tasting room is brand new, elegant and beautiful. It sits on one end of the most post-military spaces you’ve ever seen.
There are displays inset into the wall of the tasting room that make it like a museum. The buddahs hand looks like weird aliens pickled by some mad scientist.
The rest of the building is functional, industrial and full of boxes, supplies, and has the coolest big copper still I’ve ever seen.
Straight Vodka –Don’t leave without buying a bottle of this. Consider it a staple.
Pear eaux de vie – take a gagillion
pounds of pears, distill them and this is their essence. This is Aqua Pear-fecta
Cherry eaux de vie – subtle fruit
with almond finish
folks there said that they don't see many rabbits come into the
place, and pulled out some unreleased, private, concoctions like:
Hangar One is worth the trip. How often do you get to taste your way through exotic and delicious distillations while gazing out onto the factory floor? It’s off the beaten path so your local friends will wonder how this place escaped their radar and out of towners will wonder where the hell you’re taking them. You’ve gotta check this place out.
