Montanya distills their own rum, and serves a very large variety of rum drinks to make use of it. They don't offer much in the way of food, just a few small bites/appetizers, which were ok tasting, but pricey. Service was slow, but each drink is pretty labor intensive, with muddled items and fresh fruits, etc. There was live music... More

We visited Montanya twice during our weekend visit to CB! My husband loved their Gold Rum (I believe it was the Oro) and I had the Watermelon Agua Fresco since I am pregnant (it was so refreshing!). There was live music on Saturday night, which was very good. Highly recommend this place for couples looking to enjoy a nice drink... More

My husband and his friend were a little skeptical when they discovered it was all rum drinks, but they still gave it a shot. Our friend ordered a Manhatten which he said was the best one he had ever had. I had a Teocali which was so light and refreshing, you could even tell there was alcohol in it. My... More

If you are in the area you must stop by and check out this place. You can go upstairs to watch them brew the Bourbon. They even use Louisiana Fresh Sugar Cane as the sweetener. How neat is that. Try it out for yourself.

I sure hope we were making rum when you were here, since we don't actually make bourbon! Thanks for the visit! More

We ended up visiting the distillery multiple times during our long weekend stay. Every drink we tried was fantastic. They have many traditional rum drinks, and then lots of adventurous ones that are absolutely delicious. Each day they had specials listed - both days we went, they were variations on an old fashioned, cherry and fig. Both were delicious. TRY... More

Montanya Distillers has a comprehensive menu of delicious rum cocktails made with rum distilled and infused in-house. I ordered a savory and a sweet dish from their small but tasty menu of small plates and enjoyed them at the bar, served by friendly staff. Don't miss the free sampling of their three rum varieties.

This is another super cool place in Crested Butte that we loved so much, we went twice. It's right on the main drag in town, and brews all their own rum and other related spirits. And they do a great job! The food was great - mostly appetizers and pub type food. We ate appetizers then went to dinner elsewhere... More

The food was delicious! The drinks are all rum cocktails (made in house) or sodas. There are just a few bartenders/servers so prepare to be patient.

We make each cocktail to order with items made for and squeezed fresh right into the cocktails, so yes, it takes a little longer than the average vodka tonic, but well worth the extra 5-10 minutes. Thanks for coming in! More

We arrived and we were the only people in the place. We were greeted and shown the process of distilling. We then went to the bar and had many good drinks. The Irish cream, the mojito, and the coffee rum were amazing. A must stop in CB.

We went in, sat at the bar, and sampled rum. The bartender was super friendly and recommended drinks to us. We loved all the infused rums and unique combinations of flavors. Would definitely go back.
