Alameda’s craft-not-for-craft's-sake Brandy.

 
Making Brandies isn't an American thing per-se, but you can find great exceptions everywhere. St. George Distillery of Alameda, California, has been producing spirits for the past 32 years. They’re among the first in the United States in the craft movement - that’s before craft was even a buzzword. They began as a one-man operation located in a bare-bones production facility all those years ago, and have grown to a diverse team of individuals passionate about artisan spirits. 
 
The distillery is located in a 65,000-square-foot hangar with a spectacular tasting room, laboratory, and a lineup of the most beautiful pot stills in the industry. Better is better, they say.
 
St. George Raspberry is an unaged fruit Brandy made in St. George’s 250 liter copper pot stills. Their mission was to capture and present the Raspberry’s smell at the peak of ripeness. Making Eau de Vie is not an American thing, no, but this craft-not-for-craft's-sake distillery has been making them for over 30 years. And hell-a-good ones!

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in St. George Raspberry Brandy and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Brandies can help digestion, so they are perfect after meals, they were and are still considered as medicine.

Aaron
Aaron,
Terrible. It smelled like fish. Didn't taste much better. Absolutely repulsive. 40 minutes later and I it's still making me queasy.
Joe
Joe,
Not bad, don't like the smell but it leaves a berry taste
Richard
Richard,
I'm sorry but this one did nothing for me, I think they used the roots instead of the fruit and left the dirt on as well.
Daniel
Daniel,
A bit harsh- overpowering with sour raspberry. Would benefit from a year or so in a barrel
Taj
Taj,
A very nice nutty smell

Jan,
Never tried a brandy with flavours so similar to the fruit of its origin. Beautiful experience!
