American Whiskey - Bourbon
St. George Spirits Breaking & Entering California Bourbon Whiskey
This is a Tier 2 score in the Whiskey category. It means critics have highly recommended the spirit as a benchmark in the category.
St George Breaking & Entering bourbon is named for their self-described act of "barrel thieving." Bourbon--especially good bourbon--requires a great deal of aging an a large inventory from which to select barrels. Neither a large inventory nor time is something artisan distillers tend to have a lot of so their whiskeys are often blends of batch whiskey bought from a larger stock. Instead of hiding this fact, St George named their bourbon after it. They selected their own barrels from stocks in Kentucky and brought them back to California to blend. The result is a blend of "Kentucky pedigree and California ingenuity."
