Willie's Distillery is a small-batch distillery located in the small town of Ennis in Southwestern Montana. They say the smaller the town the more time slows down. We're ok with that because you just can't rush perfection. Our ingredients are simple: The finest grains available, carefully selected yeast, pure, clean Montana water, and a good dose of heart and soul. Sometimes we use Wild Montana Honey or Native Berries and Botanicals. Clean, simple, perfect.
We use a copper pot still made specially for us by Bavarian Holstein Stills from Germany. We knew we wanted to make whiskies and brandies, and a few specialty spirits, so we sought out one of the finest small batch stills in the world. Our still is handcrafted out of copper, and hand-hammered to create more surface area to react with our spirits vapors. Since we 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.
We invite you to come sample our fine spirits, including our famous Montana Moonshine, Montana Honey Moonshine, Bighorn Bourbon, Wild Chokecherry Liqueur, and Huckleberry Sweet Cream Liqueur. Our tasting room has a feel of an Old West Saloon, our gift shop and tasting room is warm and friendly. You can taste as a sampler or in a tasty cocktail made by one of our spirits specialists. We have a cocktail special each week, so come on in and tell your friends you’ve tried them all!
Occasionally we have some banjos and fiddles playing old timey music just to liven things up a bit. Watch us on facebook for our upcoming events.
