St. George 40th Anniversary Edition Single Malt Whiskey

 


St. George 40th Anniversary Edition Single Malt Whiskey....$529.99
Bottled with a punch at 48% ABV, only 1,982 bottles of St. George Spirits 40th Anniversary Edition Single Malt made for the world!
In celebration of 40 years of artisan distillation, we are proud to share the 40th Anniversary Edition of St. George Single Malt Whiskey. This highly limited bottling brings together decades of craftsmanship and our ever-growing collection of unique and varied finishing casks to create a singular spirit that is a true collector’s item for connoisseurs of American single malt.

In preparation for this one-time-only release, head distiller/blender Dave Smith spent months meticulously working through our library of casks. Of the 600+ we sampled, only 30 made the initial cut, and we ultimately selected a mere 14 casks to create the whiskey that went into bottle.
In the words of master distiller Lance Winters: “Our 40th Anniversary Edition Single Malt Whiskey represents the cumulative experience of 40 years of boundary-pushing distillation, as well as our decades-long love affair with making single malt. It's the pure essence of passionate self-expression—and it's also delicious.” Not that he’s biased.

The mash bill for the 40th Anniversary single malt is the same one we have used since we started laying down barrels in 1997: 100% two-row barley at five precise roast levels: pale malt, crystal malt, chocolate malt, black patent malt, and alder/beechwood-smoked malt that we get from Bamburg, Germany. What sets this whiskey apart from our annual Lot series releases is the special quality of the casks we used to make it. For more on that, read on.
