Award-Winning Obsessively-Crafted High-Mountain Rum
Established in 2008 by longtime rum enthusiasts Karen and Brice Hoskin Montanya Distillers
Montanya Distillers produces high quality rum in Colorado's Rocky Mountains Montanya Distillers
Montanya rums have only four ingredients Montanya Rum Sugarcane from Hawaii (primarily Maui) Rocky Mountain spring / snowmelt water from the West Elk Mountains Proprietary yeast Tiny touch of house-made caramelized Rocky Mountain honey to enhance the natural flavors of the aged rums (added just prior to bottling)
Closed fermentation takes five to eight days and is carried out in Crested Butte Montanya Rum
Distillation occurs in an open-flame, hand- hammered Alembic copper pot still from Portugal Montanya Rum 100 gallon still
The rum is aged to maturity for 3 to 18 months in a Single Barrel Process Montanya Rum Freshly-decanted whiskey barrels from Stranahans in Denver, CO Oro is aged in barrels that are fresh and wet
Greater temperature fluctuations at altitude force more rum in and out of the barrel's oak pores Montanya Rum This results in a smoother, more flavorful spirit in less aging time
Aged product is filtered and a touch of caramelized honey is added to enhance the natural flavors Montanya Rum Platino rum is filtered using a coconut-husk charcoal plate filtering process which leaves the spirit clear Oro is filtered for clarity but not to remove barrel color.
Bottling, labeling and packaging are carried out by hand in the Crested Butte facility Montanya Rum
