“Bartender Craftsmen”
Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

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 that promotes and fosters creativity. If you haven't visited yet, you are missing out.

“Rum drinks extraordinaire”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

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 get a great view of the action on the main street in town. It was a great spot for a pre-dinner drink after a hard day on the trails. Yummy rum!

“Great Rum Drinks”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

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 they have. You can purchase bottle to take home, which is well worth the value and something to savor when your home. We have been to Crested Butte 3 times now and this is definetly on our list.

“A great, unexpected afternoon”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

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 got the Maharaja and the Blue Smoke, among others. OMG! My wife (not a rum drinker) and I thought this was one of the best cocktails we have EVER had. Many days later we are craving it and will try to make one. The chocolate rum balls were also excellent. Karen, the owner, gave us tour upstairs of the setup. Very nice.
