A dream is finally coming true for a Havre couple.

Alyssa Crawford and her husband Neil are set to open Crawford Distillery at the beginning of July.

“We have really fallen in love with this town and the history that is here,” Crawford said.

Between balancing their four children and the new distillery, the husband-wife duo is excited for new beginnings.

The Crawfords plan to decorate their bottles with a history lesson. Each bottle will have a chapter and the chapter will tell a story.

“Havre Beneath the Streets has really made this about how cool it would be to open a distillery here,” Crawford said.

And aside from the product, they want it to be a family-friendly vibe.

“We’re hoping obviously the product is what draws them here, but also too just the family feeling that we have, being that we do have four kids you will always see one of them I’m sure running around. We want people to have a place to come, bring their kids and be able to sample a product,” Crawford said.

The distillery will allow one person to try two drinks and purchase two bottles in a 24-hour period.

This couple has big dreams of partnering with food trucks, having specials on farmer’s market days in the summers, and meeting new people in the community.

“We have had such a positive reaction and welcoming vibe,” Crawford said.
