Ennis, MT

Ennis, MT  High 78  Low 31


Jim needed to get a two day fishing license so we headed into town to grab some lunch and a license.

ennis1We stopped at the Yesterday’s Soda Fountain. Jim had a club sandwich and I had a cold roast beef sandwich. They were okay. We each brought half home with us and had them for lunch the next day on our good bread. Made all the difference in the world.

We thought their idea to protect their wood floor was very creative.


Jim got his license and we decided to stop in Willie’s Distillery.


This is from their website:

We knew we wanted to make whiskies and brandies, and a few specialty spirits, so we sought out one of the finest small batch stills in the world. Our still is handcrafted out of copper, and hand-hammered to create more surface area to react with our spirits vapors. Since we specialize in whiskey which has a lot of flavor to it, copper was an important element to the design, as it reacts with unpleasant tasting compounds, allowing the better flavor to shine through. The still comes from Germany.

They have a tasting room and offer such selections as Montana Moonshine, Bighorn Bourbon Whiskey, and Huckleberry Sweet Cream Liqueur.


Definitely worth a stop if you’re in the area.


  1. Is the liquor to celebrate Jim's catch?? :)

  2. We were some place else that they put socks on their chair feet. Very creative.
    Huckleberry Sweet Cream Liqueur....yummy!

  3. Now that sounds like a great way to spend the day and wind up at a distillery.

  4. We drove through Enis on our way to Yellowstone and I recall it being in a big time fly fishing area - did Jim catch your supper?

  5. Is that big cold front that is coming into the Eastern US affecting you out there in MT. It's going down to 25 F tonight here in PA. I've got the drop light with a 100W bulb in the water bay since it will be below freezing for 8-9 hours. Brrrr. Can't wait to get back to Tucson for the winter.

    Does Jim have a big enough freezer to hold all those fish he is catching?

    Have fun out there.

  6. That definitely looks like a cool place to visit. However, speaking of "cool" you need to get out of there before the weather gets colder yet.

  7. Huckelberry sweet cream sounds good to me

  8. The protective socks made me LOL.

  9. The protective socks made me LOL.


Thanks for visiting today. I look forward to reading your comments. Have a beautiful day.
