They have a wide variety of cocktails based on their vodka, gin, bourbon and bourbon cream liquor. Try the Orphan Girl (cream bourbon and root beer.) Good to Know: Montana's distillery service laws allow you to only have two drinks per day at a distillery. Each drink can only have one ounce of alcohol

We'd been wanting to visit Headframe Spirits for awhile, and we finally had the chance during the MT Folk Festival! Fun, fun, fun! I had a couple of their lemon and basil flavored cocktails including the martini. It was a gorgeous drink and very delicious! Even though the place was packed, the service was very good. We loved our visit... More

This is a super cool place with home made whiskey's, gin and vodka. If you are a gin drinker check out Anselmo. A superb craft gin with great history. My purchase made it safely back into Canada on a motorcycle!

I liked the atmosphere, but the seating was "awkward" in that the tables were for 6 or more people, with no place for couples. A person was singing and playing a guitar the night we visited. It was noisy and crowded, so we didn't stay.

I love visiting Headframe when I am in Butte! I always have to stock up on Orphan Girl for my friends and I! The staff is always friendly and giving us advice on new drinks. The history behind the spirit names, the building and bar are a great way to take in a tiny bit of Butte history!

Thanks so much for the great review. We love what we do and love the chance to share it with the world! If you live in Montana, you can find our spirits on the shelf at your favorite liquor store. If they don't have it, just ask! We're available throughout the state. Cheers, Courtney More

Great staff, great drinks, great atmosphere. Lavender Martini is my drink of choice, but they are all great. Also kid friendly, it's not a bar so it's not strange to see people bring their kids or even dogs into here. All set in historic uptown Butte in a building that some say it's haunted. Two drink limit so make sure... More

If you're in Butte, this place is a must! The drinks are great. I normally just get a whiskey sour, pretty darn good. Most of my girl friends enjoy the "dirty girl" tastes very similar to a root beer float. Not my thing, a bit too sweet, but I highly recommend them if you like sweet drinks! Like others have... More

It's a bar....with a two drink limit. It's a tasting room with a charge for drinks and you can only buy a limited amount of bottled goods. The bartender makes a mean martini. and the drinks were reasonable priced but its not a tasting room. You are drinking. I only had the gin and it was well done with enough... More

You definitely have to make this part of your vacation or day while in Butte. THIS IS NOT A BAR! Actually you need more than just a day so you can try more than the 2 drink limit. But you have to try the 'Old Fashion" and the "Caesar". A more sweeter drink, if you like creamy drinks as my... More
