Second time to Crested Butte and we went both nights for wonderful drinks and a great overall experience! The service was great and the drinks were unique and delicious! We will always visit when in town.

Yes, nirvana. Crested Butte is a happening little ski town in the summer, being a gateway to the Elk Mountains, which are arguably the most beautiful, and perhaps dangerous, in the great state of Colorado.
As such, it was fitting that on my first visit to Montanya, we were celebrating a good friend's birthday on the eve of an epic 30-mile Four Passes loop trail run. With that said, we hardly got to scratch the surface of the cocktails crafted from Montanya's incredible Oro (dark, amber) rum or their Platino (charcoal distilled clear), having the desire to perform well and actually enjoy the run the following day.
We watched the sunset on their small but cozy patio, enjoying the passers by and the samples of Oro and Platino before making our drink decisions. Our waiter, Scott I believe, hooked us up with the birthday shot--a Maharaja. SO tasty--I especially remember the Cardamom finish. We shared some of the house chips (french fries), and they were also really good. Had we the time, we would've been there till close. All the more reason to head there again!
There's a reason their obsessively-crafted mountain rum has multiple awards--it'd be a crime for you not to drop in and find out why. Cheers!

Excellent rum and interesting concoctions with extraordinary creativity! The new location is more intimate and lends itself to a friendlier atmosphere. Thus far I have tried Teocalli, Basil Paradisi, Strawberry Jive and Thai Boxer - all are worthy! Montanya's artisanal, infused rums are delicious. My husband is a purist and has settled on Oro on the rocks with a twist - a simple drink that stands on its own. Live music adds to the fun and for people-watching you cannot beat the patio seating. Check it out!

We stopped here on a Saturday afternoon and I'm so glad we did. The drinks were delicious! The service was great and the free popcorn was an added bonus. We will definitely be back!

I am not typically a fan of rum or the sickly sweet cocktails it goes with, but after visiting this distillery/bar/restaurant I may be a convert. The service was incredible, the rum was excellent, and the cocktails even better! They test, experiment, and come up with NEW recipes and combinations on a weekly basis. It's hard to find a venue that promotes and fosters creativity. If you haven't visited yet, you are missing out.
