Bartlett pears (yes, pears) are the secret here. Why? Thirty-five years of distilling Bartlett pears has shown us just what this gorgeous fruit is capable of—especially when put through our Holstein stills.
Using the same flavorful and aromatic pears here as in our flagship pear brandy makes perfect sense, delivering a spirit with no overt pear flavor but with substantial body and subtle floral notes—and creating a vodka that is uniquely St. George.
90 Points Wine Enthusiast - Distilled from grain and fruit—specifically, Bartlett pears—this complex vodka doesn't have the neutral profile some vodka drinkers expect. The warm scent suggests roasted almonds. On the palate, vanilla and almond intertwine with a mild sweetness that recalls agave, with a barely perceptible, mouthwatering salinity. The finish is malty and roasty. The overall effect is a vodka that ever-so-subtly winks at the whiskey bottle down the shelf.
