How is Karen turning rum into more than a piña colada mixer?

Rum is flowing from the mountains of Colorado, where spirits are crafted from pure spring water and sugar cane from family farms. Where ingredients are distilled in a mountaintop facility that’s 100% wind-powered. Over a decade ago, Karen Hoskin followed a dream and founded Montanya Distillers, a certified BCorp making award-winning rums, and at the time she was one of the few female distillers in the country. She is now setting out to prove that rum is so much more than a piña colada mixer, and she’s using her distillery to drive positive change for people and the environment.
