We happened upon this Distillery on our way back from Yellowstone. Everything about it is perfect! (We have been to a few distilleries in Seattle, and this very much impressed us still.)
Monica greeted us with her welcoming smile, the $1 tastes proved that they have the best whiskey & moonshine in the world (try it, you'll agree), and their cool copper mugs, unique flasks, & shot glasses were hard not to bring home--we got a mug.
If you're in or around Ennis (or at Lewis & Clark State Park as we were) you MUST stop by!
Excellent !!!!!

Fish in the morning, whiskey in the afternoon! You can live the phrase by fishing the bountiful Madison River in the morning and having some of Willie's Bighorn Bourbon in the afternoon, then you take take home the T-shirt and a couple bottles to your envious friends at home! The staff are super nice, especially Nick, Jaymie, and Willie! They have some great spirits, especially the Honey Moonshine. Drink it in a "Bee Sting" to stay quenched on those hot summer days. Definitely recommend this place to all travelers over 21!

A veteran owned business. We have been to Willie's many times and always find a reason to stop in once a week for a cocktail in the tasting room. Live music and great atmosphere, have never met a stranger in there yet. Their bourbon is great and in small batches. I am a local to the town of Ennis and I can tell you the place is always full of friendly faces and folks who like to share the end of the day with friends. We have watched it grow from the beginning and it has made a great addition to our town. They always welcome folks to check it out even if they are just passing through.

From the restored farm-house door separating the tasting room from the distilling room, to the family brand emblazoned on each bottle and t-shirt, this is a true Montana distillery run by a (literal) mom and pop team. The staff is all incredibly well-versed in how the product is made and should be consumed, and the product itself is....smoooooooth! Only a couple of cocktails allowed, per Montana law, but it's enough to give you some ideas for how to use your bottles at home.

If you're in Madison county, or nearby, this is a must-stop destination.

Came out for a hunting trip in October with some friends and visited this quaint distillery in gods country. Listened to some live music from a guy they called Ethan who was great and Monica in the tasting room was someone we soon won't forget! Knowledgable and funny she kept our interest and gave us second to none service. The two drink minimum is a drag when you want to stay for a while but the experience more than makes up for it and there seemed to be a good mix of friendly locals that frequent to visit with. A must visit while in Ennis!!!
