One might typically imagine rum being made in a seaside tropical locale. Yet Montanya Distillers, nestled in the Rocky Mountains at 9,000 feet, believes that the altitude actually benefits the fermentation and distillation process. And judging by the number of awards its rum has won, it’s hard to disagree. Other elements of its distillation technique are just as thoughtful: Montanya Distillers makes its rum using non-GMO sugar cane and pure Colorado mountain spring water, and the company’s operations are 100 percent wind-powered and carbon-offset.
