Shelter Distilling Coming to Colorado Outdoors in Montrose

Mammoth Lakes, California-based Shelter Distilling are planning to take up a sizable chunk of land at Colorado Outdoors in Montrose.


The plan is to build a 23,000-square feet distillery, brewery and restaurant that will be able to accommodate hundreds of guests inside and outside.


The project is estimated to break ground in late 2022 and the company has plans to hire 25-30 employees once the location opens.


The goal is to expand production of spirits, canned cocktails, and canned beer as well as to work closely with local ranchers and farmers to keep their products locally made.
