In the spirit of Antelope Island comes Antelope Island Rum. We know authentic rum flavor and taste come from innovating while honoring the history of rum and rum making.
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.
Welcome to Dented Brick, a 14,000 square foot distillery built in 2015. From the start we’ve been passionate about crafting something absolutely original, and as we stood on the front porch of the old brick house, we knew we’d found the right place to build our distillery.
We loved the property. The original building was, well, original. It inspired us. Built in 1919, the home had character (and a colorful history). Almost unbelievably, the property’s water source was an artesian well, drilled by the previous owner and his father.
We pulled the bricks from the old house down by hand and kept them all - even the dented ones. Today, they are part of the new distillery and remind us of our mission to produce and share with the world truly craft spirits. Spirits we love. Spirits that start with distiller-selected fine raw materials and artesian well water. Spirits produced entirely in our house with no shortcuts. We promise to put our passion and commitment in every bottle and to create a community around every glass. We are innovators who maintain respect and love for tradition.

Aromas of Himalayan salt, vanilla, lime, and pineapple. The round, buoyant palate is dotted with salty notes of apricot, Asian pear, and butterscotch toffee, while the finish is long and luxurious.
