Creativity at it's finest

We popped in to Montanya Distillers for a pre-dinner cocktail. It's such a treat to go to a bar and see a creative cocktail list!

The Mizzes and I headed down into town to stroll a sparsely populated Elk Ave on a frigid, snowy afternoon. We ducked into Montanya about 3PM and cozied up at a corner table. We nibbled on fresh popped popcorn as we perused the menu. First, a flight of three rums to warm our tummies (gratis since it was our first... More

Nice place to hang out and have a cocktail. Rum is distilled right upstairs. Free tasting of the three varieties. I had a drink called Maharaja. Rum with ginger, lime and Indian spices. It was different and delicious!

Montanya makes some pretty good rum. I was there with a group of 10 people and they were very willing to give tasters to all ( of age). The white rum is the best in my opinion. The drinks are good, they have a whole range of cocktails. You have to try the stuffed jalapenos, they are as good as... More

Wonderfully informative staff. Great food! Fantastic drinks. A lot more family friendly than one would think, especially in the early evening hours. Their aged rum is heavenly. Will be back in February for more!

My wife and I ate here on December 30. We were easily able to grab a spot at the bar. Received immediate attentive service. Rum drinks are great, although we weren't sure whether beer and wine are available. The small plates were great, with larger than expected portions. We combined 3 or 4 for dinner on a night when every... More

Everything I was looking for! Came on my birthday for the first time and have already been back more than once. Hands down my new favorite spot in Gunnison/Crested Butte. Really unique and flavorful cocktails, always great service, and the food is absolutely killer! Jalapeno poppers and fried ravioli are my favorites! All the dishes are perfect size small plates...

Arrived on a Friday eve for cocktails and little bites. Very crowded and to chilly to be outside- we headed upstairs where there is small seating along a loft-type area across from the distillery. Service was a bit slow and as more people came up that way it was less attentive. Great selection of cocktails made with their products. My... More

We stopped by for rum drinks and appetizers, and we weren't disappointed. Loved the sirloin tips with deep fried carrot shavings!
