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.

Stopped in to try one of their hot rum drinks and added the "animal fries" as a snack. Both were unusual (mustard sauce and scallions on the sweet potato fries) and delicious. Staff were friendly and helpful, room was open and airy, prices very reasonable. Our new favorite apres ski stop!

Great selection of cocktails using their home-distilled rum. Grab a couple of tasty appetizers and enjoy the back patio, or sit inside and enjoy the live music.

I'm a whiskey girl and my hubby likes his rum so we had to check it out. We did the complimentary rum tasting. I loved my apple old fashioned Montanya style and we devoured the Brie with tart cherry compote. We'll be back for sure!

Visited this rum distillery/bar/restaurant on our first night in Crested Butte. Sat at the bar and got the charcuterie plate and jalapeño poppers, plus a few exotic rum drinks made with their house made run. Renee was incredibly busy making these complicated concoctions but kept a smile on her face while making wondrous libations. The rest of the staff really... More
