Monthly Bartender Series - The Hornet

In our March Bartender Feature, we talk with Laura Banning of The Hornet in Denver, Colorado.

The Hornet was one of our very first bar/restaurant supporters in Denver when our distillery was just getting its start.  They have been committed to featuring our rums on their cocktail menu for YEARS and we couldn't be more full of appreciation for this amazing place. This year, Montanya Distillers celebrates our Tenth Anniversary and we will bring the party to Denver to host a party at The Hornet on May 20th.  Details to come, stay tuned!

In this December bartender feature, we talk with Laurie Hall of The Farm Bistro in Cortez, Colorado. Since 2009, The Farm Bistro has been serving the best produce and meat from their back yard in Montezuma County.

They have an all-Colorado beer, wine and spirits lounge, with a delicious prickly-pear Montanya cocktail. If you are in the area, be sure to stop in!

Monthly Bartender Series - Moonlight Pizza

Some of the very original bars and restaurants that embraced Montanya Rums when we started nearly 10 years ago were in rural Colorado. These have been some of our most consistent and growing customers since the early days.

Moonlight Pizza was one of our early customers and has been a consistent purveyor of great cocktails.  It is well worth building your ski, bike or kayaking vacation around a sunny afternoon on their patio in Salida.
