Have you ever had a taste or a smell that instantly transported you back to that time and place where you originally had it? A physical sense that becomes woven into the very fabric of a memory? At Whitefish Handcrafted Spirits we do our best to make that kind of thing happen — every day.
At Whitefish Handcrafted Spirits, we’re on a mission to create some of the best handcrafted spirits in the world. We’re half alchemists, half artists. We distill and taste and tweak and do it over and over until we’ve created something of such immutable character we’re proud to put our name on it, pour it into a glass and serve it up to you with style.
Crafted with care. Distilled with distinctiveness. At Whitefish Handcrafted Spirits we use only the finest (locally sourced whenever possible) ingredients. It’s not cheap. It’s not easy. It’s not quick. It’s love.
It’s a leather wingback chair next to a crackling fire. It’s twinkling stars in a winter night sky. It’s a cozy sweater and moonlit snow. It’s raising a sparkling glass in a toast with friends and family. It’s a warm hug of citrus, cinnamon and clove. In other words, it’s the perfect drink to warm up a cold night. Serve chilled over ice.
Straight or mixed, Whitefish Cranberry Moon is somehow bright and refreshing — while still feeling like home. Enjoy it over rocks in a double old fashioned glass or shake it into a beautiful Whitefish Cosmo.
Crisp and clean, like freshly melted snow flowing down the Flathead River, our grain-to-glass Montana Wheat Vodka is as cold and smooth as our river rock. This stuff isn’t meant for Philistines who take brutish shots or filling their glass to the brim. Freeze it. Gently stir into a martini. Mix it carefully. Pour it. Sip it. It’s as beautiful as big, clear blue sky.
Please take off your bowler hat. Ladies and gentlemen, we’d like to introduce you to a small batch, hand-crafted gin that isn’t your grandfather’s tipple — though he’d undoubtedly love it. We’ve married the finest grain and select botanicals in our copper still to make a super-premium gin that shines in cocktails, over the rocks or neat.
We take our huckleberries very seriously — after all, the competition for the freshest huckleberries is a bear! Our Huckleberry Liquor is made from fresh locally-sourced berries, picked at the peak of ripeness and infused into our house-made rum. The result is an aperitif that’s pure liquid magic.
Sit. Stay a while. Drink. Eat. Talk. Read. Then have another drink. Stay here long enough and you might even learn something about handcrafted spirits.
And perhaps even the meaning of life.
Our Executive Chef is focused on pleasing, challenging, changing and — dare we say — occasionally educating? Here, seasonal, small plate tapas-style dishes are expertly crafted to compliment our spirits. All of our food is grown and raised with care, locally when possible, and plated with a maddening attention to detail.
COMING VERY SOON: Rain or shine, snow or summer, relax, drink, eat and bond with friends in one of our private, heated Montana Cabana safari-style tents. It’s the perfect getaway from your getaway.
