Business Buzz: Whiskey award; new downtown condos

Here’s some business news in the Missoula area:

Montgomery Distillery’s Mama Tried Wheated Bourbon recently won the “Best In Class” award at the Whiskies of the World competition for being the best wheated bourbon in the world.

The whiskey is made with 100% Montana grains, and the large wheat component is grown on the distillery farm in Lewistown.

Montana Department of Agriculture director Christy Clark, right, sips on a cocktail as she listens to Montgomery Distillery owner Ryan Montgomery give a walkthrough of the business’s production operations on Wednesday, April 19. 


“We’re honored to be recognized by Whiskies of the World and their panel of expert judges as having the world’s best wheated bourbon whiskey,” said Ryan Montgomery, founder of Montgomery Distillery. “This is the product of skilled distillers, the bounty of Montana agriculture, and patience.” 

Both of Montgomery Distillery’s bourbons, Mama Tried Wheated and Mama Tried High Rye, have previously won gold medals at Whiskies of the World awards, but it was the Wheated that brought home the top honors this year.
