After a big day on the slopes, an adventure hiking through the wilderness, or a wet and wild rafting expedition on the Gallatin River, there’s something nice and relaxing about sitting down and enjoying a drink. If you’re over 21, be sure to explore and enjoy some of the flavorful, innovative, or classic spirits that come from Montana Distilleries scattered across the Treasure State.
The distilleries of Montana create all sorts of high quality alcoholic spirits. From huckleberry gins to Montana moonshine to bacon-flavored vodka, there’s a liquor out there for everyone. Rum, gin, whiskey, moonshine, bourbon, cream liqueur, brandy, vodka, and other spirits are all made in Montana.
Montana may be the perfect place to sample different spirits and distilleries. Our pristine and natural environment has a bountiful selection of raw Montana ingredients that are ideal for distilling hard alcohol. Add in the pure mountain air and the fresh, flowing Montana water and you have the recipe for perfection.
