St. George Spirits Showcase presented by St. George Spirits

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Established in 1982, California’s St. George Spirits is a true American original—deemed “iconic” by Spirit Journal and “best craft distillery in America” by Thrillist. Over three decades at the vanguard of the American craft spirits revolution, St. George has become one of the most prolific and innovative craft distilleries in the nation.

This showcase is a chance to meet St. George Spirits master distiller Lance Winters, distiller Dave Smith, brand ambassador Andie Ferman, and the rest of the St. George crew—plus the opportunity to taste a wide variety of spirits from the distillery's portfolio. 

The distillery's core line of spirits (including its three new vodkas) will be available for sampling neat at spirit evaluation stations and in original cocktails from the most creative bartenders from around the country.
Come taste the lineup from America's original craft distillery and meet the people behind the scenes!
