Best Place to Refresh Your Distillation Science San Francisco 2011 - St. George Spirits
Science and booze don't sound like a probable (or fun) combination, even in the best-case scenario. Somehow former Navy nuclear engineer and master distiller Lance Winters alchemized a way to create bonds between the unlikely pair at his distillery. On Saturdays at 1, 2, and 3 p.m., and Sundays at 1 p.m., tasting room manager Andie Ferman and crew lead free tours of the distillery and distillation process. Don't be surprised to find something brewing in the stills at the small facility. We recommend following it up with a comprehensive tasting of the spirits ($15), including the vodkas and absinthe.
