Second time to Crested Butte and we went both nights for wonderful drinks and a great overall experience! The service was great and the drinks were unique and delicious! We will always visit when in town.

Yes, nirvana. Crested Butte is a happening little ski town in the summer, being a gateway to the Elk Mountains, which are arguably the most beautiful, and perhaps dangerous, in the great state of Colorado. As such, it was fitting that on my first visit to Montanya, we were celebrating a good friend's birthday on the eve of an epic... More

Excellent rum and interesting concoctions with extraordinary creativity! The new location is more intimate and lends itself to a friendlier atmosphere. Thus far I have tried Teocalli, Basil Paradisi, Strawberry Jive and Thai Boxer - all are worthy! Montanya's artisanal, infused rums are delicious. My husband is a purist and has settled on Oro on the rocks with a twist... More

We stopped here on a Saturday afternoon and I'm so glad we did. The drinks were delicious! The service was great and the free popcorn was an added bonus. We will definitely be back!

I am not typically a fan of rum or the sickly sweet cocktails it goes with, but after visiting this distillery/bar/restaurant I may be a convert. The service was incredible, the rum was excellent, and the cocktails even better! They test, experiment, and come up with NEW recipes and combinations on a weekly basis. It's hard to find a venue...

All of the rum drinks we tasted here were terrific - we tried the Mojito, the Maharaja martini, and the Pina Colada (over 3 different evenings!) On your first visit they even give you samples of their 2 different types of rum so you can taste them straight. Since it was summer, we enjoyed their darling little patio where you... More

This is a must stop place to go when in Crested Butte. They have the best gold rum. Thier drink menu will blow you away. Their drinks are work every penny, as they are not shy with the amount of rum they put in your drink. We love sitting at the bar and watching them make all the great drinks... More

This was a fun find and a highlight of our trip. Our visit in Crested Butte was to hike but due to a knee injury we were adapting. We found ourselves under the trees (in back) of this place on a lovely sunny day. They gave us free samples of the 2 rums they make. Both good. Feeling adventuresome, we... More

I don't even like rum, but I was given a sample of their clear and gold product, and it was amazing! I loved the appetizers also ( prime rib tips and jalepenos/bacon poppers), and for dessert a Cocoa Rum Ball. I had a Martini with spices and cardamom which I also recommend. So glad I stopped here.
