RoughStock Distillery, the only legal craft distiller in Montana -- ever, is about to unveil its first batch of single malt whiskey.
The facility, located in Bozeman and run by fourth-generation Montanans Bryan and Kari Schultz, has been in operation for two years. Their whiskey is made from Montana-grown and -malted barley, water from fresshwater streams fed by snowmelt, and aged from six months to two years in new, charred oak barrels.
RoughStock's 250-gallon copper pot still was custom designed and manufactured by Vendome Copper and Brass Works in Louisville, KY. The owners plan to produce 3,000 cases a year, with the intent to ratchet up production to 5,000 to 6,000 cases annually.
