There hasn’t been a distillery in Montana in more than 100 years, which we thought was a shame. One thing history tells us is that great whiskey starts with two things: amazing grain and pure water. Luckily we’ve got plenty of both right here in Montana that rival that of any place in the world. With the beautiful grain grown throughout the state and the pure mountain snowmelt that fills our lakes, streams, rivers, and aquifers it’s a no-brainer that Montana was meant for making whiskey. Damn good whiskey, in fact.

Nestled at the base of the Bridger Mountain Range in beautiful southwestern Montana, RoughStock Distillery is quietly hand crafting small batch whiskeys with a western flair. We are Montana’s first legal distillery since Prohibition and the first to make whiskey in Montana in more than 100 years.

We are sure you will taste the difference our handmade approach makes in every bottle of our whiskey. RoughStock Distillery is quietly handcrafting small batch western-style whiskeys using locally grown grains. Our process highlights the world class grain without an overbearing oak influence. Our whiskeys are truly something unique and unlike anything you’ve ever tasted. We hope you agree.
