Dented Brick® Craft Vodka is the #1 selling vodka in Utah, and it’s not hard to see why. This exceptionally clean and gluten-free well vodka is made from 100% non-GMO corn, brought to proof with the most important ingredient — artesian, limestone-filtered water. This water is sourced directly from the snowy and majestic Rocky Mountains, the snow melt flowing into the distillery's own artesian well, creating a unique flavor profile crafted from this pure and mineral rich water.
This handcrafted well vodka has an extremely clean front and finish, with warming cereal notes and a buttered bread like extended finish. Compelling notes of plantain, cream of wheat, and margarine with a supple, crisp, dry-yet-fruity light body and a warming, medium-length evaporated milk finish.
Aroma: Notes of cracked pepper
Palate: Vanilla wafer, cooling wintergreen mint
Finish: White bread, peppermint candy

This crowning achievement is a testament to the exceptional flavor and quality created by our meticulous process and skilled artisans who are devoted to pushing the boundaries of this craft, while preserving the timeless tradition of distilling.
Make sure you have a clean palate (your mouth). Common palate cleansers are bread or unsalted crackers, though rinsing with room temperature water should also do the trick.
The first thing to look for when tasting a new spirit is what it looks like. Take a note of its color, is it clear or cloudy, light, golden, or dark - this can help prepare your brain for what is about to come next.
Commonly referred to as "nosing" this is where you sniff the spirit to soak in those delicious aromas. Short quick sniffs are best to capture different aromas. You have about 7 seconds before your nose gives up and stops noticing things so try and identify things quickly.
The first sip is always a bit of a shock to the tongue, so take a small sip to get the light burn out of the way so you can then focus on the flavors.
Take a second, slower sip and let the spirit float around your mouth and the vapors float into your nose to identify more aromas. Here you want to look for sweetness, bitterness, spiciness and acidity. Make a note of what you observe.
Next, take another sip and pay attention to the consistency of the spirit. Is it smooth, light, thick? Does the flavor intensify or stay the same? Compare this to what you noticed in "the view."
Swallow the spirit and pay attention to the after taste. How quickly does it fade away? Do more flavors present themselves, do other flavors disappear?
