The Headframe Spirits is a local distillery with World Class products. The law will only allow 2 drinks in the tasting room, but, you can buy packaged liquor to go. They have mixed drinks that are named after Butte icons and you owe it to yourself, to stop by and have a nice Adult Beverage.

Our #1 favorite local spot, hands down. High quality spirits distilled right here in Butte, served straight or in sinfully delightful cocktails by the best bar staff in SW Montana. We've traveled extensively in the SW Montana area and tried every distillery we found. We've even tried a few in other states. While we've had some good experiences and tried... More

Although this place can be a bit uncomfortably packed at times, its that way for a reason. This is a great place to get a drink you normally wouldn't get at any other bars and they do a great job making them. Personal favorites are moonlight punch and the sour angel.

We have been here for functions, just a place to meet with friends, a tour of the facility, and just to buy bottles as gifts. The bar and bar back in the distillery are fantastic examples of woodwork masterpieces in the 1890s and early 1900s. Originally part of the Rocky Mountain Café in Meaderville, they have been meticulously preserved. Worth... More

The vodka was really a nice surprise, as was a special 3 yr aged whiskey they had. Can get a flight, and they also have a Variety of cocktails and very popular place in town, with good reason. Definitely stop in here if you go to Butte (better than any of the Breweries in town). Note: all breweries and this... More

The actual bar has history so do ask where it came from. The spirits are good and you should do a tasting if you can. My favorite was the vodka - smooth and perfect for drinking neat. Their bourbon was almost as good in my opinion and should be enjoyed while there. The tasting room has a limit of 2... More

This place will definitely put one in good spirits. The aged whiskey and the gin were excellent. The mixed drinks were good, too. Staff was very friendly.

I'll try to be brief. Headframe is one of the recently legalized craft distilleries that are popping up in various states. Montana's legislature continues to be stupid about laws regulating distilleries--these politicians say they like free markets but that doesn't extend to alcohol--and so if you visit this tasting room next to the distillery, you are limited to two servings...
