Raise a glass to (and at) Minden Mill Distilling, a state-of-the-art distillery producing ultra-premium spirits on a historic campus in the heart of Minden.

Exceptional spirits made with Nevada-grown grains—that’s what Minden Mill Distilling delivers from its storied campus in Carson Valley.

Made from locally sourced and sustainable grains grown in Nevada’s high desert, Minden Mill Distilling’s spirits include bourbon, rye, and American single malt whiskeys, as well as white spirits. The distillery is housed in century-old buildings that used to be a creamery and flour mill, earning it a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. Even non-drinkers will want to experience this remarkable, LEED-certified campus for the awe-inspiring architecture and design features.
