Whisky Chat: Do you like Whisky?     Yeah.. We do too!

Montana’s first legal whiskey to debut.

RoughStock Distillery, the only legal craft distiller in Montana — ever, is about to unveil its first batch of single malt whiskey.

The facility, located in Bozeman and run by fourth-generation Montanans Bryan and Kari Schultz, has been in operation for two years.

Their whiskey is made from Montana-grown and -malted barley, water from freshwater streams fed by snowmelt, and aged from six months to two years in new, charred oak barrels.

RoughStock’s 250-gallon copper pot still was custom designed and manufactured by Vendome Copper and Brass Works in Louisville, KY.

The owners plan to produce 3,000 cases a year, with the intent to ratchet up production to 5,000 to 6,000 cases annually.
