Montgomery Distillery

The morning of Sept. 29 was a special day for local whiskey aficionados. That’s when Missoulians lined up outside the doors of Montgomery Distillery to get their hands on the Early Release Rye. The 2-year-old, 100-percent rye liquor made its mark as the Garden City’s first legal, aged whiskey to be sold since before Prohibition. For many locals, it was love at first sight.

The Early Release ran out before Christmas, leaving whiskey lovers bereft until Montgomery’s Sudden Wisdom, a 3-year-old rye, came on the scene in February. Love may be fickle, but here’s hoping that Montgomery’s whiskey is now here to stay. Montgomery Distillery : 129 W Front St • 926-1725 •
