“What makes Antelope Island Rum unique is our commitment to using regionally-sourced organic, non-GMO raw materials. Blending green sugarcane with the highest quality molasses and artfully proofing with our artesian water sets our flavors apart from all others.
Traditionally, rums originated in the West Indies and Jamaican Islands. Antelope Island, like our regionally sourced raw materials, provides the local inspiration for our island rum. (And by the way, we even have a parrot.)
Antelope Island is in the Southern part of the Great Salt Lake. Natural fresh-water springs and a land-bridge that emerges when the lake is extremely low makes the island a natural refuge for all sorts of wildlife including bighorn sheep, mule deer, pronghorn antelope, coyote and the state bird, the California seagull.”
About Dented Brick Distillery:
A few years back a small group of “UTAH-ANS” (a.k.a. people from Utah) gathered over cocktails in their favorite watering hole and as usual they were discussing what they wanted to be when they grew up.
Funny thing is – the youngest among them just turned 40 so in reality the topic that evening was more about pursuing their career “passion” before they ever did grow up”!
As the conversation (and the drinks) continued to flow they discovered that they only had two things in common …living in Utah among the Rocky Mountains and imbibing only the finest spirits money can buy.
Sensing that these good buddies wanted to do something together, the defacto leader, Marc Christensen spoke up and proclaimed that he knew precisely what the gang should do. “Let’s build a world class distillery in Salt Lake City…and if we never make a dime at least we’ll know one thing…we will forever drink only from the finest hand-crafted spirits from Utah.” The rest they say is ancient history.
