Hello from Billings, MT!!

Recommended Posts

Hello my name is Jake Holshue. I am the distiller at Billings' newest distillery Trailhead Spirits. We are distilling away in anticipation of our opening. Going to start with the obligatory vodka and gin, but have big plans to do many different small batch whiskeys, absinthe's, brandies, etc...

Our building is a historic train depot, and has gone through many changes over the years. The owner, Casey McGowan, his great-grandfather owned a speakeasy in the Prohibition era in Butte, MT. We have named our gin after him- Healy's Gin. Our wheat comes from Casey's family farm up in Highwood, MT.

Montana has some great distilleries, too many to name. But at least one in all the major cities, if not more. All of whom, so far, have welcomed us into the distilling community with open arms.

I am using a Bavarian-Holstein system that is working out (although the kinks are still getting worked out).

Hope to ask and answer many questions on this forum in the near future.
