Montana Moonshine Willie's Distillery

Montana Moonshine Review

Montana Moonshine is made with four grains and gently distilled to bring out the full flavor. It is what whiskey looks and tastes like before it goes into a barrel. Smooth, sweet and strong, Montana Moonshine is the perfect mixer. Use it like a vodka or a whiskey and you can’t go wrong.

They use a copper pot still made just for them by Bavarian Holstein Stills from Germany. They wanted to make whiskies and brandies, and a few specialty spirits, so they sought out one of the finest small batch stills in the world. The custom still is handcrafted out of copper, and hand-hammered to create more surface area to react with our spirits vapors. Since they specialize in whiskey which has a lot of flavor to it, copper was an important element to the design, as it reacts with unpleasant tasting compounds, allowing the better flavor to shine through.

The Montana Moonshine pin-up illustration is of MaryAnne. She loves to fish remote mountain streams during the full moon. Like our Montana Moonshine, she is independent and easy-going.

Museum of Latin American Art (molaa) has a must attend annual event, Viva El Tequila! Experience the rich and proud tradition of tequila and some additional Mexican spirits. MOLAA’s annual Viva el Tequila! event is always successful, fun, educational and each year I meet more amazing tequila lovers. Learn from distillers, owners and brand ambassadors about the traditions surrounding tequila as you enjoy unlimited sampling of more than 25 varieties- classic, flavored, mixed cocktails and new tequila brands… Paired with amazing food, this year a gigantic pan of paella being made right in front of you, quesadillas, salad, chips, salsa… and across the way was a desert table with an assortment of sweets and fresh brewed coffee. Mariachi Band Espectacular played all night, dancing, eating and tasting tequila in the MOLAA courtyard outside under the stars on a crisp November evening.

Some of the many brands featured this year were Casa Don Nacho Tequila, El Jimador Tequila, New- Lucha Tequila, Roger Clyne’s Mexican Moonshine, Suerte Tequila featuring their New- Suerte Limited Edition Extra Anejo Tequila, Tequila Herradura, Purasangre Tequila, Lapis Tequila, Seleccion Artenom Tequila (very popular), Mina Real Mezcal, Don Amado Mezcal and so much more… One of the highlights this year was Marco Antonio Ramos master mixologist and Tequilier featuring Honey.
