Great Basin Wildrye is a grass that is native to Montana and the American west. It can grow grown between three and six feet tall and can be spotted around our hometown of Bozeman. Our Wildrye Rye is crafted by hand, one batch at a time, using carefully selected ingredients. It is rested in our Five Drops Bourbon Barrels until it’s spicy but smooth character, with notes of vanilla, is just right. We then finish it with pure Montana mountain water. Like its namesake, Wildrye Rye is a unique part of Montana that you too can find if you know what to look for.

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.
