“Good but not great”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Went first for a tasting and then tar turned in the evening for drinks. The tasting was great. The lady pouring was very knowledgeable. The owner came in and also spent time talking with us. The rum was good and a generous 4-5 oz pour was only $5. The evening return was more mixed. Three of us ordered 3 different drinks. One really liked hers. However, mine which was supposed to have a hazelnut infused rum as well as hazelnut simple syrup had no hazelnut taste at all. It was hard to tell if it even had any alcohol in it, To her credit when I mentioned this to our server she took my drink off the tab and brought me a different drink. It was better but not something I would rush back for. My advice is go for the tasting if you like rums but skip the cocktails.

“Must stop in CB”
Reviewed 11 March 2014 via mobile

After a brief tasting, we enjoyed a few of the Al Pastor tacos. I enjoyed the "caldera" with a jalapeño kicker. Wonderful staff. If you like a cozy joint, with good food and drink this place is a must stop during your visit.

“Stop by when in Crested Butte”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

You need to try this local favorite! The smell of the distilling rum alone will keep you there. We recommend the Maharajah but the drinks are all good.
