Montanya Platino Rum
Montanya Rum // Colorado, USA
Montanya Distillers was founded in 2008 in Colorado, and now has its distillery located in Crested Butte. As of 2014, they obtain sugar cane for distillation from Louisiana, mixing it with mountain spring water. They use a copper pot still for distillation, and tout both their high-altitude and their eco-friendly processes as unique components to their story. Aging is completed in used American oak casks from Stranahan's Whiskey, while utilizing a coconut-husk charcoal filtration to remove coloration.

"The nose bursts out at you with butterscotch, pineapple and other tropical fruits. There's a distinct nuttiness, almost peanut butter lurking in the background. The palate is soft and offers funkier flavors, with earthy, mineral and grass notes, along with lighter hints of toffee, molasses and marzapan. A short, warm finish leaves behind ending earthy and toffee flavors."
