Salt Lake City, UT (June 29, 2021) – Dented Brick Distillery announced that it has received an investment from Rotterdam Partners, a Salt Lake City-based private equity firm focused on providing capital to growing companies. The investment will assist Dented Brick Distillery in growing the production capacity for their award-winning spirits, including Moon’s Best Rye Whiskey, Antelope Island Rum, and Roofraiser Vodka.
“Partnering with Rotterdam Partners is ideal for Dented Brick. Rotterdam Partners’s experience supporting the growth of consumer brands is exactly the expertise we were seeking at this stage. Beyond the capital they provide, we were drawn to the substantial support that they give their portfolio companies in terms of market research, supplementary financial analysis and knowledge exchange with fellow investees. This is the right partnership to grow Dented Brick to acquisition,” said Ainsley Lloyd, CFO of Dented Brick Distillery.
Winner of over 70 awards from major publications and tasting panels, Dented Brick Distillery has been hand-crafting grain-to-glass spirits in the Salt Lake Valley since 2015. The company utilizes locally-sourced ingredients in all of their premium spirits, including water from their on-site artesian well that flows directly from snowmelt in the Wasatch Mountains.
“The future of the distilled spirits market is local craft distilleries, and Dented Brick Distillery has already secured itself as a brand leader amongst all liquor brands sold locally. We look forward to our partnership with Marc and team as they dominate the market and continue to grow national recognition,” said Greg Seare, Founder of Rotterdam Partners.
