St. George Spirits NOLA Coffee Liqueur
Earthy depth, subtle fruit notes. Think rich coffee with notes of hazelnut, bittersweet chocolate, red wine, and plums.
Founded in 1982, St. George Spirits is America’s original craft distillery.
Over nearly four decades at the vanguard of the American craft spirits movement, St. George Spirits has grown from a one-man operation dedicated to brandy into one of the most prolific, innovative, and acclaimed distilleries in the nation. Now owned and operated by master distiller Lance Winters (a James Beard nominee many times over) and head distiller Dave Smith, St. George has been inducted into the Spirit Journal Hall of Fame, called “a leading light in the American artisanal spirits movement” (Whisky Advocate), and named “best craft distiller in America” (Thrillist).
Today, St. George’s family of world-class spirits includes single malt whiskey, absinthe, and several gins, vodkas, brandies, and liqueurs. The distillery is located in a former Naval aircraft hangar in Alameda, California, and is open to the public for educational distillery tours and guided spirits tastings.
First prepared by 13th century Italian monks as herbal medicines and elixirs, Liqueurs are distilled spirits that have been combined with flavoring agents. A range of herbs, spices, nuts, fruits and flowers can be used, and a sweetener such as sugar or corn syrup is often added. While typically rather sweet, some examples are herbaceous or tart and pair exceptionally well with desserts or act as a delightful addition to cocktails.
