I am critical of eating places in Crested Butte; finding them universally high priced and poor quality. Not so with Montanya. While this is a rum distillery, Montanya offers a great selection of unique small plate meals. Plenty to eat, excellent and unique food and reasonably priced for the food and the great environment. This would be a good spot... More

Stopped in to Montanya Distillers after reading Trid advisor reviews. So glad we did. I asked for samples of the rum. 3 different samples (free). From there we ordered cocktails. They have a great cocktail menu. I'm not usually a fan of a $10 cocktail, but this may have been my favorite drink of our weekend. I was ready to... More

What more can you ask for besides a good band, taste cocktails and free tastings. This places distills the rum upstairs which is cool by itself. We went two separate nights.

Montanya has become a can't miss spot when I visit CB. The small building front welcomes you into a charming, cozy retreat beckoning you to the bar or one of the tables on the first or second floor. Full disclosure: Never had the food here. I come for the drinks, and the drinks are amazing. They have a very adventurous... More

This place is fantastic. Not just for the area but nationally. I mean it. This place is serving craft cocktails that easily rival anything you'll find in NY or LA. They hand distill their own rum on site. That's just the beginning. These folks are pushing the limits of what can be done with cocktails. They are combining ingredients heretofore... More

Great drinks, good staff, and good food. I stop in each time I visit Crested Butte. I enjoyed watching the bartender make the "Smoke Show" drink. I definitely recommend that one!

We came after lunch for a tasting. Molly got us started with a flight of three Clear, Oro, and Exclusivo. We followed with one of their specialty cocktails. What we missed was Rosie's Pho. Looked delicious. Go for lunch!

Whenever we're in Crested Butte we always stop at Montanya for a drink before dinner. Great drink menu. Try the special sipping run for an extra treat. Wonderful array of tastes.
