A Story of

ADVENTURE

On a ski trip in the Alaskan backcountry, three close friends and Colorado natives capped off each day drinking spirits at a local craft distillery while meeting new friends and sharing stories about their wild adventure. Inspired by that trip, our Mythology is based on the experiences and stories we tell while enjoying great spirits with those we care most about. Discover your Spirit Animal and form your new Mythology.

Montana Brand Ambassador

Emily Clark

Born and raised in Seattle, Washington, Emily’s heart always called her to the mountains of Montana. A lifelong lover of music, Emily started an all-women’s production company specializing in kids-geared music festivals upon her arrival in Whitefish, Montana.

In a stroke of great luck, Emily opened for members of the String Cheese Incident and was pulled to Denver, CO and performed at Red Rocks, The Gorge, Fillmore as well as Mythology Distillery.

Emily’s performance at Mythology led her to become a bartender and brand ambassador for the company. Emily hit the road in 2020 while the Mythology bar was closed to test the market and see if she could expand Mythology’s footprint to her “forever home” in Montana. She was wildly successful in promoting Mythology, returned back to Denver to convince the team and is now our Montana brand ambassador based in Whitefish, MT.

Emily blends her passion for music, the outdoors, people, and mixology while representing Mythology and selling our spirits in MT.

Spirit of Choice:
“Tequila”

Cocktail of Choice:
“Violet Beauregarde”
