“Neversweat bourbon” just one of the products of this new Butte business
When John and Courtney McKee opened their new microdistillery "Headframe Spirits" in Butte in early 2012, they had no idea their success would lead to them being named Montana Entrepreneurs of the Year for 2013.
Besides producing bourbon and gin and other spirits, their company also manufactures distillation equipment for Montana's growing distillery industry.
In this feature interview, Courtney McKee talks with News Director Sally Mauk about how they decided to start their own company, when John got laid off from his previous job.
