American Oak

American Oak

On the island of Alameda, home to St. George Spirits, American Oak is a hip restaurant and bar that offers a few hundred spirits and a thoughtful whiskey selection in all categories with more than 100 bourbons listed on its site. There are educational whiskey flight groupings like “Kentucky’s Finest Bourbons” or 1-ounce pours of everything, should you want to choose your tasting. Look for small production American bourbons like Traverse City from Michigan or Oola Waitsburg from Seattle.

Order one of Kentucky’s famed classic cocktails originally served in Louisville’s Seelbach Hotel, the Seelbach Cocktail. Here it features Four Roses Bourbon, Creole Shrubb and bitters topped with sparkling wine.

The bar has its own Whisk(e)y Club, with which you can track your tastings on a tasting sheet kept on file. You also receive invites to special tasting events. When you reach 100 verified tastings, you get your name engraved on your own flask as an “A.O. Master of Whisk(e)y.”
