Natural and All-American Rum


Montanya Distillers Handcrafted Rum.

Montanya Distillers rums are handcrafted from traceable American ingredients at our distillery in Crested Butte, Colorado: American sugar cane, Colorado mountain water, yeast, and a tiny touch of Colorado honey from bees near our distillery. They are 100% pot distilled, low-ester, and oak barrel-aged. (We can of course talk rum and the making of rum all day—check out the details here.)

Our non-GMO, minimally processed sugar cane is grown in Belle Rose, Louisiana. We age our rums in American White Oak barrels that previously held Colorado whiskey. We ferment and proof our spirits with water from well water from deep in the Rock mountains, from a well 350 feet below our bottling facility in Crested Butte. This well water is pulled from a snow melt and spring-charged aquifer which is free of heavy metals and filled with flavorful minerals. It has never been treated with chlorine, fluoride or reverse osmosis filtration.

With no flavorings, no additives, no glycerine or glycol, Montanya Distillers distills all-natural, craft-distilled, honest American rum. Click here for a detailed PDF information sheet.

Montanya is the careful culmination of passions—for rum, for community, and for sustainability. Montanya has grown thoughtfully over the years, never forsaking their personal values in favor of maximizing production. The result is both one of craft distilling’s greenest operations and the home of some of the finest, most characterful rum produced in the United States.
