Tucked on the west edge of Salt Lake City’s Sugar House neighborhood, Sugar House Distillery received federal approval for spirits distilling in September 2013, and Utah approval in January 2014. The distillery’s initial 2014 vodka release was followed later that year with a 100% malted barley whisky. In 2015, Sugar House distilling added both a silver and gold rum to the product line, with more exciting spirits currently in production.
Come by the distillery to meet owner and distiller James Fowler, Master Distiller Eric Robinson, and assistant distiller and sales representative Jake Wood. They take education about their craft seriously, and encourage consumers to come by the distillery and see how true grain-to-glass spirits are made, one small batch at a time. No outsourcing. No additives. No artificial colors or flavors. Just grain or molasses, yeast, and time; finished with a little water and a lot of skill.
