“I get the Crib Sheet every morning so I can monitor labor costs, and I use the site when I am away and need to get help from someone on the ground. Nobody can say they “didn’t know” because every tool is right there with them. We’d be lost without it.” ~ Karen Hoskin
Montanya Distillers is nestled high in the Rocky Mountains at 9000 ft. in the charming downtown of Crested Butte, Colorado. Our high alpine location makes great sense for making rum, since the altitude positively affects almost every aspect of fermenting, distilling and aging rum. Their non-GMO sugar cane comes from family farmers in Louisiana, who grow and mill directly for them. Their water comes from one of the purest spring and snowmelt-charged aquifers in the USA.
The company is 100% wind powered and carbon offset, in addition to about 25 other daily sustainability actions. Our Montanya Rums are made by hand, from scratch, in a very traditional way using alembic copper pot stills from Portugal. We offer daily tours, tastings and a full rum bar with artisan cocktails, farm-fresh foods and small plates, 7 days a week.
At Montanya Distillers, we use Schedulefly for about 100 tasks every day. We book our distillers and bottling crews, staff the bar and restaurant, keep track of events and music, and communicate amongst ourselves about important info. With two facilities and staff on the run all over the place wearing a lot of different hats, even traveling for the company in other states, it is so essential to have a tool to know who is working where. I get the Crib Sheet every morning so I can monitor labor costs, and I use the site when I am away and need to get help from someone on the ground. Nobody can say they “didn’t know” because every tool is right there with them. We’d be lost without it.
