STRONG!

We had a couple of drinks here and the rum is very good. Mojito was strong and lasted a good while. Another we tried was a strawberry concoction that was excellent. You will enjoy and be happy you visited.

Stopped by for an afternoon cocktail with friends. We sat on the back patio and was promptly greeted by a friendly server. The drink menu is full of unique cocktails that feature their award winning rum. All 5 of us enjoyed our drinks...my cucumber concoction was really delicious. Just a fun place to hang out with friends!

We went there before going to eat at Stash. So Cool...we were seated upstairs where the distilling is going on. The purpose of us going in was for the Rum Tasting. We did do the samplers. It was packed and we thought the wait would be long but much to our surprise it was not. Great atmosphere and very interesting... More

We took a break after walking around at the art fair and had a drink here. Liked the pina because it was light and not that thick sweet mix that fills you up. You can taste the rum, so be careful as it goes down too easy ;). The also had complimentary popcorn. We didn't eat here so the rating... More

Of course this is the thing everyone said was great, so I purchased a bottle of the dark after sampling a shot of the light and the dark. It is very tasty and very reasonably priced at $30. And my friend and I chased our spirits with (her) an almond dusted truffle and (me) a pistachio dusted truffle. Oh my.... More

The rum surpasses any other on the shelf. Distilled in the high alpine town of Crested Butte, CO the only things that comes close to the taste of this rum is the location. CB is an incredible town and Montanya's has probably the best spot on Elk Avenue. This is a must do when you are in the area. Take... More

Didn't eat but the drinks are imaginative and quite tasty. This is a sure place to sit and wait for a table at a nearby restaurant. They're generous with their rum so go have some Fun, Salida1048

Never liked sweet rum so I was skeptical about a free taste. The rum is seasoned in bourbon barrels and the taste is a cross between bourbon and a dry rum. Delicious. They have many creative drinks made with two different rums.
