St. George Spirits is an artisanal distillery located in Alameda, California that produces a range of alcoholic beverages under the direction of Master Distiller Lance Winters. They are known for producing vodka, absinthe, whiskey, gin, brandy, liqueurs, and a range of exotic spirits.
St. George Spirits was founded in 1982 by Jörg Rupf as an eau de vie distillery. In 1996, Jorg Rupf hired Lance Winters, a brewer and former nuclear scientist. One year later, Jörg and Lance began distilling and aging their single malt whiskey, which was first released in 2000. In 2004, St. George Spirits moved into its current location, a 65,000-square-foot (6,000 m²) airplane hangar on the former Alameda naval air station.
The visual identity was designed by Juli Shore Design from Oakland, California. Several of the label designs feature works by illustrator Steven Noble from San Francisco. The two main typefaces of the brand are LTR Federal, used in shaded and solid styles, and Bank Gothic. Those are combined with a range of other typefaces that match the hip traditional theme.
