This weekend we ventured to Alameda with some friends for a distillery tour at St. George Spirits. Our friends had all been to the St. George before. The most recognizable brand distilled by St. George is Hanger 1. Although we unfortunately missed out on the tour as they only offer one tour on Sundays, we did enjoy a wonderful tasting.
Even learned a tip from our friend on how to taste a spirit so it doesn’t burn going down your throat – take a breath, take a sip, exhale. Seemed strange to us until we tried it and then low and behold each of the spirits took on a completely different quality.
From there we headed to Rock Wall, where they offer wine tastings from several local wineries. Most incredible at Rock Wall is the view of the sunset and city.
