In 2013, Ridge Distillery became Vilya Spirits, a name change which both reflects the nature of the endeavor and allows Vilya to become an officially trademarked name. The company remains family-owned and operated, and Vilya’s products are still produced with the same skill and care, by the same team, in the same region of the Pacific Northwest. All of the ingredients continue to be grown and wild-crafted in Montana. While originally distillation occurred on a small mountain ridge in Montana’s Flathead Valley, the company recently moved production to southwest Oregon. Vilya continues its dedication to small batch artisanal spirits, with an unwavering passion for gin and absinthe.

DISTILLING PHILOSOPHY

Vilya produces small batch spirits using handcrafted copper alembic stills from Portugal, and only the finest botanicals available, including many grown in the Northwest Rocky Mountains. They work hard to make full flavored spirits that celebrate the alpine herbs, pure water, and the Northern Rocky Mountains where it all comes together.
