Creative Cocktail Recipes from Utah’s Largest Independent Distillery, Ogden’s Own

by Megan Hill

Utah’s largest independent distillery, Ogden’s Own, produces an award-winning line of gins, whiskeys, and vodkas. The lines are each uniquely branded, sometimes with tongue-in-cheek references to some aspects of Utah’s history. There’s Five Wives Vodka, for starters—and a companion Five Husbands one, too. Other products highlight lesser-known (and less sarcastic) aspects of the state’s history, like Madam Pattrini Gin and Porter’s Whiskeys.

Visitors to Ogden should check out the distillery’s Side Bar, the on-site craft cocktail destination. The unique menu is divided into four flavor categories (Sweet & Fruity, Sour & Tart, Spicy, and Spirit Forward) that will impress without pretention.
