Built in 1916, this historic creamery was designed by Frederic J. DeLongchamps, one of Nevada’s most celebrated commercial architects.

The building was used by the Minden Butter Manufacturing Company to pasteurize its products. The Company became the largest creamery in Nevada, shipping on an international scale. It was organized to market Carson Valley produce, particularly butter, under the Windmill brand.

Windmill products were marketed primarily in the San Francisco Bay Area, where they established a reputation for quality for Carson Valley agricultural products.

The creamery was added to the National Register of Historic Places on August 6, 1986.

The Bently Heritage tasting room is a special place for people to enjoy and be educated not only on Bently Heritage, but distilling in general. Here, visitors can experience tours, tastings, or besppoke cocktails that are only available at our distillery.

While you enjoy your drink at the tasting bar, expansive views are seen throughout. Whether you’re looking at the Eastern slipe of the Sierra, or catching a glimpse of the distillers in our single malt production area, your experience is sure to be nothing short of world-class.
