Salt City Vodka, a new corn-based spirit — and the first produced by Elevation Distillery in Midvale — is now available in state liquor stores across the state.

The 750-ml bottle, which costs $19.95, has a blue and peach-colored label and showcases the Utah mountains and the Salt Lake City skyline. It includes the dome of the state capital, the top of the LDS Church office building and the spires of the Mormon Temple.

"We wanted to highlight our favorite designed buildings in Salt Lake and give the bottle that feeling of awe when you look up at those gorgeous Wasatch Mountains that dwarf our humble city," said Elevation co-owner Aaron Ilott.

He and Jesse Farrer, both Utah natives and vodka lovers, became friends more than a decade ago and always dreamed of starting a distillery. Ilot said they started attending distilling courses in Colorado and have invested their "life savings and then some," to launch the business, which is Utah’s sixth licensed distillery.
