We wanted to sample their different rums. Didn't realize that they also have tasty appetizers. We got the rum sampler...which enabled us to sample several types of their rums. Ordered the Scallops appetizers. Service good, food good, rum good. Will definitely go back!

My husband and I were in Crested Butte for four days and went here three times! Each day we had either a pre-dinner or after dinner drink. I like to try different things, and the daiquiris and mojitos were all good. My husband, who prefers rum to any other liquor and likes it straight, really liked the Oro although he... More

Enjoyed a rum tasting, fine rum mixology, great foo, a tour of the distillery, a lesson on rum making and a wonderful musician as well. This little intimate restaurant/distillery has it all. Our last evening in Crested Butte and we couldn't have chosen better. You definitely don't need to be a rum drinker to enjoy all they have to offer.... More

Wandered in to Montanya Distillers even though we are not rum drinkers typically. Sat on the back patio which was very pleasant. The free tasters of rum were a lot better than we expected. We each ordered a cocktail which were fine. The food was excellent. We ordered meat on a stick (which consisted of 3 skewers of beef, chicken,... More

Came in this past Saturday afternoon around two. Probably three other tables seated in the entire place. Took a while to be acknowledged and service was slow. Loved my drink and thought the veggie empanadas and stuffed jalapenos were fantastic. What bothered me was the service- slow, cold, and non-existent. Had to get up and pay at the bar. Such... More

Hi! We think we identified the staff person who provided imperfect service during your visit. She is new to us and has not been providing our usual level of service. We really apologize that you experienced this and have taken steps to address the problem. I think you will have a very different experience on your next visit. Best, Karen More

First off, I'm not a fan of rum. This place changed my mind. Within our group. I was able to experience over 6 cocktails (trying others not all to myself). I do wish I could remember the spicy concoctions name on the martini menu, but that drink is so memorable I'm writing for the recipe. Delicious!! The tapas, if you... More

Although the drinks were amazing, my biggest compliment is the food! We had the empanadas, spinach and shiitake mushroom dip, bacon wrapped jalapeños, baked brie, seared scallops, and crab tostadas. Literally everything we ordered was amazing and super filling! Our favorites were the bacon wrapped jalapeños and the spinach and shiitake dip. The service was great and the drinks strong.... More

This was stop #2 on date night with hubby. Every drink here alcoholic is rum, should be obvious right? The Mojito was outstanding. Will go back next year.

Limited dining options but unique combinations and very good. The rum is good but the drinks made with it are expensive and pretty weak. The service is either friendly or perfunctory depending on who's working. In general though, it's a lively place to go.

Hi! Your review surprises us mainly because every cocktail on our menu has 2 - 2.5 ounces of rum in it, so we usually hear that they pack a punch. The rum, because it is aged, often tastes smoother than most rum, so doesn't hit you in the face quite as much. We just want you to know that each... More
