Montanya Distillers is open daily all year round to the public for free rum tastings, distillery tours, artisan cocktails, appetizers and small plates, bottles of rum, gifts and merchandise at 212 Elk Avenue in Crested Butte, CO. We are kid friendly and handicapped accessible. We do not accept reservations at our Tasting Room, but we make a concerted effort to seat our guests within 0-10 minutes of their arrival. Please stop on by.
Our Tasting Room offers an extensive menu of mostly unusual and some familiar cocktails, all made with Montanya Rums and the many infusions and liqueurs we make on site. Our appetizer and small plate menu is often described as "inspired international streetfood", with many ingredients sourced regionally and locally. An effort has been made to pair our food menu up with our cocktail menu for the best possible culinary experience.
Come to our Tasting Room to try our recently introduced Rose's Pho! Our Chef Rose Reyes has been specializing in Asian Fusion cuisine for her entire career. We are excited to introduce her Pho to lunchtime at Montanya. Rose's Pho is a generous bowl of housemade vegetarian broth, rice noodles, bean sprouts, enoki mushrooms, fresno red pepper, and fresh lime with locally-grown sorrel leaf, Thai basil, cilantro and spicy sprouts, to include the optional spicy additions of sriracha, sambal olek, fresh jalapeño, or ground white pepper. Rose's Pho is gluten free, dairy free, and vegan, and is only $10! Beef, pork, chicken, tofu and wild-caught lump Blue Crab can all be added for an additional small charge. Come and get you some!
Please reach out to us for special arrangements for tour groups larger than 10 people, wedding-related events, birthday parties or specialty tours so we can be sure we are able to accommodate your needs. Typically we can provide a basic tour at just about anytime during open hours unless we are really jamming busy. If you want to tour with a distiller while rum is being made, it is worthwhile to give us a call or drop us an email in advance of your visit. In the summertime, we have not one but TWO outdoor patios at our Tasting Room, where dogs are welcome. Come sit in the sun and enjoy a rum cocktail with Colorado's local Montanya rum. In the winter, we seat customers in the Tasting Room on two floors where it is wonderfully warm and cozy from the cranking stills.
We often have live music from all kinds of genres including gypsy jazz, bluegrass, Americana, country, and other original styles. Our musicians play their own original music instead of all the covers you have heard a million times. Check our music Calendar or Facebook for information abut upcoming music and special events.
Can't visit us in person? Our rum is available in hundreds of Colorado locations, in 41 other states in the US, and on-line. Most of our logo merchandise is available on our own webstore. If you have loved our cocktails in the past, check out Karen Hoskin's new recipe book.
