Roofraiser Vodka is hand crafted with non-GMO and organic wheat and rye farmed on the Utah-Idaho border, only 80 miles from the distillery.
There are many meanings of “Roofraiser” but we will leave our award winning vodka’s meaning to your imagination.
To all of us at Dented Brick and our 1,000 of happy vodka connoisseur’s, it simply means “The finest, most deliciously crisp-tasting Vodka on the planet.” All that makes Roofraiser what it is surrounds us. The run off from the Rockies into our Artesian well. The sweetest wheat and rye seen blowing in the breeze outside and the master distillers who watch every step in the process from “Grain to Glass” and from glass to every satisfied customer.
Along the Wasatch Mountain Front, a special circumstance exists where the runoff from Utah's legendary "lake effect" snow and rainfall, which cannot flow to the ocean, is captured by the closed basin of the Great Salt Lake. The water flows into and is stored in the water-permeable geologic layer - the aquifer. Here and there along the Wasatch Front, the natural pressure of the aquifer creates artesian wells.
We literally had to raise the roof to install our distillation equipment. Talk about commitment!
Make sure you have a clean palate (your mouth). Common palate cleansers are bread or unsalted crackers.
The first thing to look for when tasting a new spirit is what it looks like. Take note of its color, is it clear or cloudy, light, golden or dark – this can help prepare your brain for what is about to come next.
Commonly referred to as “nosing” this is where you sniff the spirit to soak in those delicious aromas. Short quick sniffs are best to capture different aromas. You have about 7 seconds before your nose gives up and stops noticing things so try and identify things quickly.
The first sip is always a bit of a shock to the tongue, so take a small sip to get the light burn out of the way so you can then focus on the flavors.
Take a second, slower sip and let the spirit float around your mouth and the vapors float into your nose to identify more aromas. Here you want to look for sweetness, bitterness and spiciness & acidity. Make a note of what you observe.
Next, take another sip and pay attention to the consistency or the rum, is it smooth, light, thick? Does the flavor intensify or stay the same? Compare this to what you noticed in The View above.
Swallow the spirit and pay attention to the after taste. How quickly does it fade away? Do more flavors present themselves, do other flavors disappear.
Dented Brick’s “PREMIUM WELL” brands are distilled primarily for bars and restaurants who want to serve their patrons the very best when they do not specify any particular brand of spirits. They are also ideal for consumers who prefer the best price value option when stocking up the bar at home.
Our premium Vodka, Gin and Rum are painstakingly handcrafted with the same care, quality ingredients and Artesian well water as every brand from Dented Brick.
