Montana Made: Trailhead Spirits bringing Montana heritage to each pour

BILLINGS – Making hand crafted spirits is a labor of love for Casey McGowan, who opened Trailhead Spirits in January 2013.

“We are a true production distillery where we make all the products that we sell,” said McGowan. “We ferment, we distill, we bottle, we do everything on site here.”

When McGowan says everything is done by hand, he means it. The bottles are hand labeled, filled, corked and boxed by the distiller, Joe Henan and his volunteer bottling crew.

It is the handcrafted nature of their products, and an attention to detail that has allowed Trailhead Spirits to quickly make a name for itself around the region.

Trailhead’s award winning “Healy’s Gin” is a perfect example.
