We frequent the Montanya in Silverton since we live fairly close and we absolutely LOVE it there. This summer we visited this location in Crested Butte for the first time and it did not disappoint. So much attention and detail has been put into this place and you can tell it is a work of love. The atmosphere is beautiful... More

On a recommendation from the resort check in staff, we planned to visit Montanya mid afternoon for a free tour and tasting. The tour was laid-back and informative. The tasting was a treat. We wiled away the better part of the afternoon with several tasty re-imagined recipes (a rum of fashioned?!? Yes!!) and yummy culinary offerings. Everyone back home is... More

We stopped at Montanya Distillery mid afternoon, hoping for a tour (free) and intending to buy some organic bakery. A young lady who happened to be in the process of making rum said she'd be glad to show us around. We watched her make rum and got the complete rundown on procedures, the difference between light rum and dark rum... More

My husband and I had a very enjoyable evening at this distillery. We joined an informal tour to learn how the rum was made, then sampled the two different rums that are produced here. After enjoying the samples, we decided to go a step further and try some of the cocktails and the appetizers. We ended up making our dinner... More

We stopped here while camping near CB. We sat outside right next to the creek with our two kids (14 and 12) and had some appetizers and drinks. Ordered mocktails for the kids and they loved them. Unbelievably creative and delicious cocktails. The Basil Paradiso was yummy but the Maharaja knocked my socks off. So good I cannot stop talking... More

Just went in, but didn't stay long because they seemed pretty busy and nobody greeted us for a while. Seemed pretty cool and smelled like rum

We loved this place so much we visited three times in three days. Granted, the town of Crested Butte is small and there's only so many places to visit. But if you want a great cocktail, go here. A huge antique bar anchors the design of the place and makes for a warm, charming atmosphere. Talented mixologists craft a huge... More

I don't drink alcohol, but the tour of the distillery was very interesting and well-presented! They have many different cocktails, all of which can be made without alcohol. Try the beach bum! It's yummy! They also have homemade peanut and almond butter, pesto, desserts, and breads. We bought the cinnamon raisin bread, and it's excellent toasted with butter. Highly recommend!

What looks like another bar with colorful props is actually a working distillery. Of all the spirits they could have brewed, they decided on rum. It is an unexpected and wonderful discovery. I sure as heck do not see sugarcane growing on the ski slopes out there! The sugarcane comes from Maui. The yeast is champagne yeast I was told,... More

What a unique and fun place. A great addition to one of my favorite towns. We stopped in after the 4th of July parade and did a rum tasting. We also ordered cocktails and a cheese/salami/olive platter (the large platter was huge by the way and more than enough for 4 people). After our first round we all ordered the... More
