Since the end of March, 2016, Dented Brick has been making it’s mark in Northern Utah’s Craft Distillers movement as an independent, estate crafted quality spirits producer. Primarily white spirits, vodka, gin, and rum, Dented Brick’s mission is create handmade spirits from local raw materials. Look for whiskey from our facility in June 2017.
Our spirits contain pure water from our on-site Artesian well. Along the Wasatch Front, a special circumstance exists where the runoff from Utah’s legendary “lake effect” snow and rainfall cannot flow to the ocean but is captured by the closed basin of the Great Salt Lake. The water flows into and is stored in the water-permeable geologic layer – the aquifer. Here and there along the Wasatch Front, the natural pressure of the aquifer creates artesian wells. The same water that falls on Utah ski resorts as powder flows into the distillery and into Dented Brick Distillery Spirits. Easily trace the artesian well water piping throughout the distillery from the well head to the tanks, then taste the unique flavor profiles crafted from this pure mineral rich water source.
Our organic, non-GMO, raw ingredients are bursting with the taste of the sun, wind, Earth, and water where they’re grown and harvested in Utah and Idaho. No shortcuts. We know the superior flavor, feel, and aroma of “true craft” starts with the flavor, feel, aroma, and quality of the individual ingredients. Organic Rye. Organic Wheat. Organic malted barley. Aromatic yeast. Artesian water.
Our state-of-the-art facility includes a custom Vendome Copper and Brassworks distillation system. Spokane Industries mash cooks and jacketed fermenters. This equipment can make for the possibility of the finest craft spirit taste, but not the reality. Only a true craftsman with an understanding of the heritage and art of distillation, knowledge of the science, timing of the process, and patience and attention to detail makes a true craft taste a reality.
We promise to put our passion and commitment in every bottle and to create a community around every glass.
