In 1900, the Garnet Mining News touted Five Drops tincture as “The Pleasantest Most Powerful and Effective Never-Failing Tonic” for nearly everything. In a gesture to Montana history, we have created Five Drops Bourbon.
Our Family has grown sweetcorn in Montana’s Bitterroot Valley for nearly 40 years. This handcrafted bourbon whiskey puts a new twist on time-honored tradition by using our family’s finest Montana sweetcorn, fresh from the field. Five Drops is mashed with a hint of malted barley using pure Montana water, distilled on our custom-built equipment, and aged in new American oak. The result is an unbelievably smooth, flavor and aroma-rich Montana Bourbon Whiskey.
We age our Five Drops Bourbon Whiskey in SMALL CHARRED OAK BARRELS in a warehouse in Montana with no temperature control. This means high surface area (more wood touching less whiskey) and large temperature changes (hot in the summer, cold in the winter).
This is part of the reason why (the rest is a trade secret) we can create such a smooth, tasty bourbon in a shorter than usual period of time. With Wildrye’s special RED LETTER aging method, 1 year is similar to four years in a traditional barrel house. Don’t believe us? Take the Pepsi challenge.
The proof is in the pudding, or whisky to be more specific! GIVE US A TASTE TEST!

Montana is full of natural beauty. Many native plants adorn the landscape (including Great Basin Wildrye). These trees and plants help create Montana’s unique look, feel and for those in the know, also its unique taste. At Wildrye Distilling, our philosophy is to let Montana’s unique flora define the flavor and aroma of our spirits.
Wildrye Distilling specializes in the production of unique distilled spirits prepared, whenever possible, from Montana-grown ingredients. Rather than importing raw materials from out-of-state to try and imitate established liquor styles, we use local ingredients to create spirits that have their own unique Montana style and taste.
This philosophy not only allows us to produce spirit styles that are unique to Montana, it reduces our carbon footprint while helping to support local agriculture, and the Montana economy. Although we don’t produce traditional distilled spirits, we do respect time-honored, production methods. All of our products are made from healthy ingredients and are chemical and preservative free. Wildrye Distilling products are hand-made and bottled in Bozeman, we even grow, and pick our own sweetcorn for our Five Drops Bourbon Whiskey on our family farm in Corvallis Montana.
