Triple Divide Vodka takes its name from an unassuming mountain with continental significance. The Great and Laurentian divides converge at the summit of Triple Divide Peak, from which mountain water flows to three corners of our continent. The three slopes of this hydrological apex divert water to the Pacific Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Hudson Bay.
We craft Triple Divide Vodka from Montana wheat and malted barley to produce a subtle spirit in the style of Triple Divide Peak’s reserved grandeur. We ferment and distill small batches of only a few hundred bottles at a time. This handcrafted vodka has a creamy texture and a pleasant, sweet finish.
We are Helena’s distillery, operating right on the Gulch. We take our name from the rich history of agriculture and industry in Montana’s landscape. The gulches that command the topography of Big Sky Country and influence nature, recreation, and our way of life also sheltered a clandestine history of spirits production. Our name acknowledges the tradition of spirits manufacturing here in Last Chance Gulch of Helena, Montana.
Gulch Distillers is proudly located in the former Montana Distillery and Bottling Warehouse at the the north end of Helena’s main, historic gulch, just downstream from the strike that turned a gulch into a mining camp, a mining camp that became the state capital.
Established in 2012 as Triple Divide Spirits, native Helenans Tyrrell Hibbard and Steffen Rasile purchased the distillery in 2015 to pursue a shared passion for whisky and quality spirits and a keen interest in craft cocktails. They rebranded the business to Gulch Distillers™ in September 2016.
We ferment, distill, and bottle on site, and use only Montana-grown grains in our grain-based spirits. At Gulch Distillers™ we create products that combine the state’s pioneer spirit with refined spirit production.
