Dented Brick is named in honor of the well driller that was responsible for the amazing artesian well that is located in the distillery and is 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" are a part of the distillery building and gave it its name.
Great Basin Bristlecone Gin is made from a unique combination of red winter wheat and pumpernickel rye sourced from the Utah-Idaho border, brought to proof with the most important ingredient — artesian, limestone-filtered water. This water is sourced directly from the majestic mountains of Utah, home of the greatest snow on earth. The snowmelt then flows into the distillery's own artesian well creating a unique flavor profile crafted from this mineral rich water.
The cold maturation of the base spirit gives this gin aromas of Tellicherry peppercorns, cinnamon, cardamom, rose water, clove, and ground ginger with a supple, bright, dry light body and a graceful, charming, medium length juniper finish. A bold and spicy Gin that will play well in cool weather cocktails.
Aroma: Herbal aromas of rosemary, crispy sage pastry, juniper, and caraway.
Palate: Satiny, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body
Finish: Smooth, stimulating, medium-length lemon bar, bitter orange,
and honeycomb finish.
