    St George "Breaking & Entering" American Whiskey


    St George "Breaking & Entering" American Whiskey

    We have long supported the spirits of St. George, based in Alameda, California. They are one of America’s first craft distilleries. Lance Winters and Dave Smith are two legendary figures in the distillate world, and their whole portfolio goes strength to strength.

    “Breaking & Entering American Whiskey is our second release under the Breaking & Entering label. Whereas our gone-but-not-forgotten B&E Bourbon was a bourbon blend, B&E American Whiskey brings together bourbon and rye that head distiller/blender Dave Smith sourced and then blended with some of our own California malt whiskey.

    Breaking & Entering American Whiskey is a celebration of the incredible diversity of whiskies made in this country. The blend brings together four grains—rye, corn, barley, wheat—with no one grain being dominant. While we can’t name names, these are whiskies from distilleries with rabid followings. We were lucky to sneak in when we did. Some of the barrels we sourced for B&E would be impossible to get today. But at St. George, we usually aren’t content to leave well enough alone. According to Dave, “As good as the sourced barrels were, it was only when I started blending them with our own malt whiskey that I realized we were on to something truly worthy of the Breaking & Entering mantle.”

    When we launched the B&E label in 2011 with our Breaking & Entering Bourbon, we deliberately chose the name in order to be transparent about the fact that whiskey made under the B&E label uses barrels we pilfered from other distilleries. We also wanted to distinguish our barrel-thieving side hobby from our own longstanding in-house whiskey program (which began in 1996 when we started laying down barrels for our St. George Single Malt Whiskey, and subsequently added to with our Baller Single Malt Whiskey).

    On the nose, you'll find toffee, candied orange peel, cinnamon, and cherry bark. On the palate, rich pecan pastry, bittersweet chocolate, fruit preserves, and spice. Enjoy Breaking & Entering in classic whiskey cocktails: Old Fashioneds, Manhattans, Whiskey Sours, Sazeracs, and even Vieux Carres are wonderful showcases for this whiskey’s dynamic flavor profile.”
