Process

Grain to Glass

These days the two most common words we hear (used as adjectives) in describing trendy, distilled spirits are the nouns, “Craft and Artisan.”

They mean essentially the same thing (skilled in making things by hand) and to a certain degree, human hands are used in making all distilled spirits if only to turn on lights.  What is most important in the process is “control.”  Control over the quality of raw materials such as the ideal grains and yeast.  Control over the water used, which is the foundation of all distilled spirits. And finally, hands on control over the entire process from “GRAIN TO GLASS”.


We take advantage of local farmers we know and trust to grow the finest (and most expensive) ingredients and the purest, most pristine water from our very own on-site artesian well.

Every step is done in house – by hand and under the discerning eye of our master distillers.


Are the brands of Dented Brick “Craft” or “Artesian?” Of course they are.  Other distillers depend on buying grain-neutral spirits or aged whiskey on the open market, then modify it to produce their products. In contrast, we complete the entire process in-house, under one roof. Starting with fermenting and distilling our grain alcohol.

So next time you are searching for a distinctive, robust and flavorful drink, ask for the brands made from “Grain to Glass.”
