1. St. George Spirits 2601 Monarch Street, Alameda, CA 94501

Located in an old airplane hangar on Alameda Island, St. George Spirits has been a mainstay of the cocktail world since they began producing artisanal liquors in 1982. The sprawling, state-of-the-art facility features gleaming copper machinery, which is used to manufacture craft spirits like absinthe verte, single malt whiskey, botanical gin, agricole rum, and more -- and all of it is available to try in their tasting room. Pro tip: the tour of the premises is really cool.
