Willie’s Distillery

Willie’s Distillery Overview

Willie’s Distillery is a true Montana entrepreneurial success story. Robin and Willie Blazer opened the distillery in 2010 in Ennis, Montana, growing the distillery from a small tasting room to a destination craft distillery with a national sales footprint. Settled just an hour from West Yellowstone, and along the road from Yellowstone National Park to Glacier National Park, Ennis has long been a destination for Montana visitors. Being flanked by the Tobacco Root Mountains, the Madison Range, and the Gravelly Range, Ennis is the perfect basecamp for a wide variety of outdoor recreation. Most notably, Ennis is known as one of the best destinations for fly fishing in the United States, with visitors coming from all over to fish the Madison, a blue-ribbon trout stream. Willie’s Distillery uses local ingredients where possible and never misses the opportunity to support the community. Willie’s was founded with a simple goal in mind: create brands and products that embody the independent spirit and authenticity of the American West while supporting its local economy and residents. This goal continues to propel Willie’s Distillery today.
