The No-Compete Clause Has Expired

That's right. Four years after selling Hangar One vodka to Proximo, our boys at St. George distillery are finally back in the vodka business. While the local heroes, Lance and Dave, over in Alameda were not allowed to sell a vodka of their own for 1,460 days, that didn't mean they weren't going start working on a few forumulae. Time has now passed, and the contract has since expired, which means it's time to get your vodka drink on. Let me now introduce you to the new St. George vodkas.

St. George All Purpose Vodka $24.99 Made from 100% American grain and fruit, the "all purpose" vodka is soft, lithe, and clean; finishing with a rounded mouthfeel that is both simultaneously refreshing and gentle. The supple weight comes from Bartlett pears, which are distilled to 95% to create the expression.  

St. George California Citrus Vodka $24.99 - Infused with California Bergamot, Valencia, and Seville oranges, the bright citrus flavor comes from 100% Lindcove produce. All the oranges were both infused and distilled in separate batches before being blended together to create the final magic. Add pizzazz to a Cosmo, or accent a vodka-cran, but amari like China China or Nonino also play well with this lovely, elegant expression.  

St. George Green Chile Vodka $24.99 Made from California jalapenos, habaneros, serranos, and both yellow and red bell peppers, each pepper is actually infused and distilled separately before being blended together. The still is also packed with cilantro and a bit of lime peel to add extra brightness and flavor. Try this in a Bloody Mary, add it with tequila in a Margarita or Paloma, and even a Pina Colada. It's incredible!!!  All hail the new kings of American vodka.

After four years of exile, the boys from the East Bay are back to claim the vodka crown and the throne. All hail the return of the king. St. George vodkas are back at K&L where they belong.
