The Knowledge Of Distilling

What gift would you like to get on the Valentine's Day? How about testing alcoholic products made by the St. George Spirits company during an excursion around its production unit?

The company is located on Alameda island, California. It is not that easy to find their shed.

The lovely safe box is greeting the visitors. The colors of the walls as well as the pictures seem rather aggressive.

The workshop contains distillatory appliances.

Waiting for the spirit to be condensed during long nights one can enjoy a good movie and try the product. In fact, such a product can keep a good company and make any movie good.

An interesting motto

An emblem which is not less interesting.
The motto and the emblem are there as the production unit is located on the territory of a former naval base NAS Alameda existed in the period from 1937 to 1997.
A testing room is right next to the production unit. Here one can try vodka, whiskey and fruit liqours of local production.

The absinthe is diluted with water.
