Montanya Distillers was honored with inclusion in "The Ultimate Colorado Liquor Cabinet" in 5280 - The Denver Magazine.  Only 8 products were selected.  Here's what they said about Montanya in the article:

"Montanya Distillers uses American cane sugar to make its rums, which are distilled over open flames and aged in reclaimed Stranahan’s barrels. The result: sweet nectar. Taste it for yourself at their Crested Butte bar, Outside‘s 2012 best après adventure bar in the world.

Use it in… An old-school daiquiri (read: no blender).

Drink it at… The Rackhouse. This Stranahan’s neighbor boasts one of the city’s largest selections of local spirits, including Montanya’s rums."
