We know you’ll have a great time exploring Dented Brick Distillery’s floor where they produce some of the best spirits around. Let’s take a look at what’s so special about Dented Brick Distillery.
When Was Dented Brick Distillery Opened?
This distillery opened up in 2016, making it a fairly new distillery. However, don’t let that dissuade you from visiting. Dented Brick Distillery has been pumping out amazing spirits since it opened. Every spirit is handcrafted – right down to the water that’s used – grain-to-glass.
Why “Dented Brick”?
According to the owners of this amazing, small-batch, craft distillery, the name “Dented Brick” was chosen in honor of a well-driller! This well-driller actually created the stunning, artesian well that the distillery uses to pull its water from. If that wasn’t cool enough, the very same well-driller was killed in a crazy gunfight – those bullets left dents in the bricks of his home. In fact, some of those bricks even made it into the construction of the distillery. Hence, the name “Dented Brick” Distillery!
Spirits Produced by Dented Brick Distillery
Since Dented Brick Distillery is under ten years old, you’re going to find spirits that don’t require long aging times – that’s just the name of the game. However, your taste buds won’t even mind; the spirits they have for tasting there are superb in their own right.
The name of this vodka has a great story! Turns out, when Dented Brick Distillery brought their new column still into their distillery building, the roof was too low. In response to this, they quite literally “raised the roof” of their distillery. Rather than rebuilding the whole roof, Dented Brick Distillery decided to just let the column extend through the roof and into the open air. Mineral-rich water, pumpernickel rye, and red winter wheat make this bottle extremely unique and unmatched. There are notes of steamed milk and butterscotch with a lemon zest and flan finish. This vodka is amazing in sweet cocktails.
Great Basin Bristlecone Gin
The same red winter wheat and pumpernickel rye are used in this hugely flavorful gin that are used in their Roofraiser Vodka. Again, that artesian well water is also used – so, you may notice some similarities between the vodka and gin! A secret blend of botanicals is used to give aromas of peppercorn, rose water, cinnamon, clove, cardamom, and ginger. This is a spicy, bold gin that they say works well in cool-weather cocktails.
Antelope Island Rum
This rum comes in two varieties: clear and red. These rums are made from sugarcane juice and molasses sourced from Lula Farm in Louisiana. Then, again, the very same artesian well water is used in their handcrafted rum batches. Both rums are incredibly smooth with incredible complexity. Be sure to try them both!
Moon’s Best Whiskey
Dented Brick Distillery also handcrafts its very own whiskey: Moon’s Best 100% Rye Whiskey. Named after Utah’s first distiller, Hugh Moon, this beautiful, amber-colored whiskey has peppercorn and vanilla aromas, with notes like brown sugar, caramel, and honey. This whiskey finishes with smokiness and oak. Again, you’ll find that the well water from mountain runoff produces a unique flavor that you’re sure to love.
