Named for Brian Anderson’s father who was nicknamed ‘Whistling Andy’ during his time in the military, the distillery prides itself not only in producing award-winning spirits, but also in giving back to the community and the people of Montana. Inspired by a great person and a small village in the mountains of Montana, Whistling Andy set out to begin distilling spirits from locally grown grains. The American farmer is a crucial part of Montana and utilizing their crops has been a goal of Brian’s.
Whistling Andy meticulously handcrafts the finest in innovative and classic spirits using select local grains, local cherries, true first-cut cane sugar and locally sourced botanicals whenever possible.
