Jan Stephenson Mango Flavored Rum goes deep on the nose. Molasses kisses overripe Pineapple as a hint of dates and figs comes into play. The palate feel is spiced with white pepper and brown-sugared tropical fruit.
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.
