Tasting Notes for St. George ATLAS Orange Gin
No tasting notes available for this one unfortunately.
The St. George ATLAS Orange Gin is an exclusive collaboration between ATLAS and St. George’s Spirits. A celebration of Seville and Bergamot oranges and Valencia Orange Blossom, this contemporary iteration of an orange gin is citrus-forward, with a burst of sweet blossom and prominent savoury botanicals.
Available exclusively at ATLAS, and.....cough cough....selected retailers.... the gin is a revival of a truly classic style of gin and represents craft gin distilling, seasonal produce and gin history inspiration..
St. George Spirits was founded in 1982, and has grown from a dedicated eau de vie distillery into a diverse operation that makes a range of craft spirits. They have grown from a one man operation operating a bare-bones production facility with tasting tables jerry-rigged on sawhorses, to a diverse team of individuals passionate about artisan spirits operating a 65,000-square-foot hangar with a spectacular tasting room, laboratory, and a line-up of the most beautiful copper stills in the industry.
That’s a lot to be proud of. But it didn’t happen overnight. They’ve grown slowly over the last 39 years, hiring one person at a time, adding one copper still at a time. They don’t have a marketing team or a big advertising budget. What they do have is passion, ideas, and access to superlative raw materials.
The craft distillation movement has grown with them over the years, and they’ve been joined by hundreds of new distilleries across the country. As the landscape has changed, there’s been a lot of talk about established spirits brands vs. newcomers. Big brands vs. small brands. The way they see it, it’s not that small or big is better. It’s not that new or old is better. Better is better. We wholeheartedly agree.
And with that in mind, they have dedicated themselves to making the best spirits they can.They want to be able to pick their spirits out of a line-up on smell and taste alone because they’re exceptional, and we feel they have succeeded in their goal and the St. George range of spirits are some of the best around. Highly recommended!
