The tour was extremely interesting. I am local but had only had a tasting before. The tour includes a tasting. The facility is in a former aircraft hangar from the now-deactivated Alameda Naval Air Station. It makes use of the space for distilling, barrel aging, bottling, shipping, etc. The tasting room faces an unobscured view of the bay and San... More

We had a great time! Our Bartender Maggie really knew her spirits and was able to explain what was in our spirit flight tasting! This is a great location in Alameda!

We make sure we stop by St. George anytime we are visiting Alameda. We took the tour once, but now we just go back to do a tasting and see if they have anything new. On this occasion, they had the Dry Rye Gin back in stock so I bought two bottles to take home with me. They start with... More

I have done both the tour and just the tasting. The tour is super informative and well done if you have the time. If you have less time the tasting is also great. Our server had lots of recipe ideas for the different spirits, and was so knowledgeable and fun ! The spirits are outstanding. Our favorites were the terroir... More

I was expecting minimal education as most distillery and vineyard tours go. But we were wowed! Check in was easy. Tour started promptly. Shiraz (sp?) was our tour guide and he was so knowledgeable and hilarious (we want to be-friend him, hang out more and chat!) Then there's the tasting. We've loved St George spirits since moving to SF but... More

We've been to a few distillery tours and tastings and this is by far the best. The tour guide was informative on the distilling process and the history while still being very entertaining. So glad we made the time for this stop at the end of our trip!

The tour of the distillery was fun and informative. The tasting afterwards was generous. You get to taste up to 6 different spirits (gin, vodka, liqueurs) all of them good. Tasting pours were big enough to get a taste of it but small enough portions so that you can easily drive home. Definitely recommend it for a group of friends.

St. George Spirits in an old aircraft hangar on a defunct Navy base. The tour offers an excellent Introduction to a fine craft distiller, and the tasting provides an opportunity to see how well the St. George products live up to the hype. (Quite well!) Take the 15-minute ferry ride from San Francisco's Ferry Building, walk for a mile or... More

St. George not only distills some of the finest spirits (gin, eau de vie, brandy, amaro)available in North America, they offer an expert tour (billed as 90 minutes, but more like two hours for the full experience). Our guide Sam was delightful. The tasting included is generous, fun and revelatory. Worth a big detour. And the San Francisco cityscape from... More
