Paws Up is thrilled to welcome back Missoula, Montana’s Montgomery Distillery for Montana Master Grillers. Montgomery Distillery is a family business with roots five generations deep in Montana agriculture. The inspiration and ingredients for its spirits come from the Montana landscape, but a love of small-batch spirits has taken the company far and wide. Food & Wine named the distillery’s tasting room as one of the top 100 new bars in the United States, and New York magazine named its Black Diamond cocktail as one of the nation’s 50 top cocktails.
RoughStock Distillery of Bozeman, Montana, is another featured distillery at Montana Master Grillers, and Paws Up’s appreciation for small-batch whiskeys is at an all-time high as a result. RoughStock became Montana’s first legal distillery since Prohibition when it opened in 2009 and the first to make whiskey in Montana in more than 100 years. With the beautiful grain grown throughout Montana and the pure mountain snowmelt in the state’s lakes, streams and rivers, it was a no-brainer that Montana was meant for making whiskey. Paws Up is overjoyed that RoughStock answered the call.
