Montana is overflowing with natural beauty. Every direction you turn, there’s sprawling gorgeous scenery. One simple look at the natural splendor, and you’ll know exactly how Montana earned the moniker ‘The Treasure State.’ It’s that sense of wonderment Bozeman’s Wildrye Distilling puts into their Montana-inspired craft spirits.
Wildrye Distilling was founded in 2013, operating under one guiding philosophy. They set out to make delicious craft spirits that weren’t copies or imitations of the big brands. Wildrye Distilling wanted to let Montana’s unique flora and fauna shine and define the flavors of their craft spirits. In short, to make craft spirits that smell and taste like a walk through the wilderness of ‘Big Sky Country.’
The Montana distillery’s philosophy means that whenever possible, they use Montana-grown ingredients to make their craft spirits. The benefit there is two-fold. Not only do local ingredients make for craft spirits with a distinct Montana stamp, but it also allows Wildrye Distilling to reduce emissions and support local farmers all across their great state.
