It started with a simple idea: What if we could build a world-class distillery in one of the driest states in the nation? A lifelong love for spirits united a group of passionate friends who undertook this challenge together, and we began building the foundation of Dented Brick® one stone at a time.
We live purposefully and joyfully among the Wasatch Mountains of Utah, and our spirits reflect the character and integrity of that existence. We strive to create unique spirits that tell authentic tales about the land and the history of our beloved home.
We utilize locally-sourced ingredients in our premium brands, and engage in responsible and sustainable production practices to create craft spirits that meet the highest standards of quality and integrity.
I invite you to experience the well-balanced flavors of original recipes and the stories from which they were born.
To your good health and a well-lived life,
When I set out to find the ideal land on which to build our distillery, I was armed with one critical piece of advice from an old moonshiner I had met in my travels and education in Kentucky: “It starts with the water!” We needed a property that had access to the best water we could find.
The search would end with a gift from heaven (and mother nature) — a property with an artesian well. The water flows clean and pure from the Wasatch Mountains, forming the perfect foundation for our spirits. We later learned that the land belonged to renowned distiller and entrepreneur Hugh Moon — a historic connection that made it all seem like fate. Hugh produced whiskey in Salt Lake City for the early Mormon pioneers in the 1850’s.
Dented Brick Distillery® is named in honor of the well driller that was responsible for the amazing artesian well that is located at the distillery — the source of water for our spirits. The well driller was killed in a blazing gunfight that left impressions in the bricks of his house. Some of those "dented bricks" were incorporated into the new distillery building and gave it its name.
