MISSOULA — Montgomery Distillery, celebrating its seventh anniversary on Nov. 16, has attracted high-profile international recognition for its single malt whiskey.
The World Whiskies Awards feted the downtown Missoula distillery with a Gold Outstanding medal, describing the single malt as the “best of its kind; superior; best of the best,” according to awards organizer Douglas Smith.
“We were elated to be recognized alongside whiskies we admire so much,” said Ryan Montgomery, distillery owner and still room director. “Chad Larrabee and Christopher Conley, our distillers, should be extremely proud.”
That means the locally owned distillery is in great company. Only four other single malts, including esteemed Scotch whiskies Glenmorangie 18 and Glengoyne Legacy, placed in the same category.
