Gulch Distillers takes its name from the rich history of agriculture and industry in Montana’s landscape. The gulches that command the topography of Big Sky Country and influence nature, recreation, and their way of life also sheltered a clandestine history of spirits production. They are proudly located in the former Montana Distillery and Bottling Warehouse at the the north end of Helena’s main, historic gulch, just downstream from the strike that turned a gulch into a mining camp which went on to become the state capital. It was named Triple Divide Spirits in 2012; when native Helenans Tyrrell Hibbard and Steffen Rasile purchased the distillery in 2015, they changed the name again to Gulch Distillers, and here they pursued a shared passion for whisky and quality spirits and a keen interest in craft cocktails.
They ferment, distill, and bottle on site, and use only Montana-grown grains in their grain-based spirits, and seek to combine the state’s pioneer spirit with refined spirit production. We are proud to welcome them to our growing spirits portfolio.
