Montanya Distillers, a craft rum distillery and Certified B Corporation®, is now available in select Whole Foods Market stores across the Western U.S. from Colorado to California, and Washington to Arizona. The stores will carry Montanya Distiller’s Exclusiva and Platino. Whole Foods Market stores join the growing list of other locations where Montanya is found including online retailer Spirit Hub, select locations of Trader Joe’s and Target, as well as regional liquor stores such as Argonaut Wine and Liquor in Denver and Beverage Depot in Dallas.

“Whole Foods Market is known for quality products and ingredients so this partnership is perfectly aligned with our values,” said Karen Hoskin, Montanya Distiller’s owner/founder. “Ingredients, responsible sourcing, and environmental advocacy are all things we’re passionate about and Whole Foods Market stores focus on these as well. This is an exciting way for more people to discover what we’re all about while helping make our American craft rum more accessible.”

Montanya Distiller’s Platino is a light rum, barrel aged giving it a unique smoothness. The flavors prominent in Platino include biscotti, cream soda, cardamom, coffee, vanilla, and pepper.

Montanya Distiller’s Exclusiva is barrel aged for three years. It has a dry, tannic finish and a complex flavor profile as cinnamon meets red wine, honey meets vanilla, without overwhelming with sweetness.

Both rums have only three all-natural ingredients: non-GMO sugar cane, mountain spring water, and the tiniest touch of Colorado honey (less than .04% in every bottle) to bring out the rum’s natural flavors.
