    The tour was a little heavy on the science but it was very interesting. It's fun to just go over and have a tasting. They have very good selection of spirits

    Get the pear brandy and liqueur. Definitely one of the best tours I've had and well worth it.

    St. George Spirits' NOLA coffee liqueur is stunning. Surprisingly smooth and flavorful, I can imagine what a fine White Russian this would create.

    Botanivore gin is an explosion of herbs and spices, flowing smoothly across the tongue. It would reinvent any standard gin cocktail, but I couldn't bring myself to dilute this fine elixir.

    Quite simply the best craft distillery in the world. From the top-down they do everything the right way without shortcuts. The tasting room is run by some of the best personalities in the business.

    Perhaps the most well-known in Alameda, St. George has been doing its thing since 1982. The company offers tours, plenty of tastings and a range of spirits from gin to vodka to liqueurs. Read more

    Come for a tasting! Knowledgeable staff who explains their line of products even a liquor novice will enjoy it. Spiced pear liqueur is amazing. Bottles are cheaper at their shop than stores.

    Lost a bit of its character ... Going more mainstream. Oddly, their products are becoming stranger. Found some nearly unsinkable, even while I recognize they're probably technically impressive.

    terroir gin is probably the best of the lot... absinthe trading is fairly unique too... great view of the city from the distillery...

    Excellent spirits. Tastings are free because state law prevents sale of alcohol to drink on the premises. Visitors are limited to one tasting - don't plan to arrive early or to hang around long after.

    The 2011 batch of Spiced Pear is currently being produced. It promises to be as delicious as its predecessor.

    also, the current bottling of the single-malt whiskey (lot 10) and the firelit coffee liqueur (batch 4, verve costa rica) are the best yet.

    Try the seasonal offerings. Past years' concoctions have used foie gras, wasabi, and one year, distiller Lance Winters' own Christmas tree! And if you wanna get fancy, upgrade the $10 12-part tasting Read more

    Take the Alameda Ferry and avoid driving. The $10 tasting gets you pretty sauced, and its a nice short walk to and from the Ferry...which also has a bar.

    Don't miss the tour. She's a bit of a dominatrix, but keeps it clean and entertaining. The absinthe is truly special. Also try the seasonals like Spiced Pear.
