Ogden’s Own Distillery, Ogden, UT

United States


History

Ogden, Utah is known as the crossroads of the west; gaining nationwide recognition upon the completion of the transcontinental railroad in 1869.

At the turn of the 20th century with prohibition, Ogden became a hotbed of bootlegging. The underground tunnels that ran booze to speakeasies and hotels still exist under the city streets and buildings. It was reported however; that Al Capone stayed away from Ogden after his first visit--stating that Ogden was too rough of a town for his liking.

Ogden's Own is proud to claim it's presence in the great city of Ogden.
