A small taste of the big sky.

NEAR THE turn of the 20th century, Butte, Montana, was famous for "The Atlantic," a bar spanning the length of a city block staffed by a dozen bartenders slinging redeye to thousands of miners who pulled silver, zinc, and copper ore from mountains that made Butte the "richest hill on earth." Today there are new treasures being mined in this little Big Sky town: pure Montana-distilled gold from Headframe Spirits, each bottle named for Butte's most famous mines.

HIGH ORE VODKA

With a base of crisp, clear Montana mountain water distilled over grains reaped from the state's rolling prairie, this is Big Sky bottled for your enjoyment. Uncommonly smooth, High Ore is a sipping spirit that needs nothing but a block of ice.

ORPHAN GIRL BOURBON CREAM LIQUEUR

Coffee and cream gets a hot little kick from this liqueur, but the bourbon-based cream is at its best in Headframe's signature cocktail: The Dirty Girl. Equal parts Orphan Girl and root beer, it's a spiked soda cream float that could tame the toughest pickman in the pit.

ANSELMO GIN

Like the Anselmo Mine, this bottle rims deep, with a flavor profile that combines a dozen different botanicals. Don't expect your standard juniper gin. What comes forward instead is a refreshingly bright bite of lemon, grapefruit, and berries.

NEVERSWEAT BOURBON WHISKEY

As the name suggests, this blended whiskey goes down easy, without the heat associated with younger blends. An eye-opener when sipped neat, its bold flavors shine brightest when stirred into a classic cocktail, such as an Old Fashioned or Boulevardier.
