News from St George Spirits (Hangar One Vodka Makers)
It was just these few words "Hangar One (the raspberry is dynamite)", read in a Chowhound Post back in October that alerted me to the existence of Hangar One. I went and found me a bottle. I fell in love. This is one of the most delicious, fragrant, fruitful, liquors I have ever tasted. It tastes real, like fruit, it doesn't taste fake, like fruit-flavoured candy. I keep a bottle in my freezer and sometimes, for a treat, allow myself a little glass with a nibble of Cote d'Or Plain chocolate with hazelnuts.

I was particularly excited because there was a note saying they hoped to open their Hangar to the Public sometime in the future. Luckily, for me, they are based just over the Bay Bridge from San Francisco in Naval Base, Alameda. The future is soon, Here is an email I received from them yesterday:
