"The idea to make 406 Agave was born under the Spanish Peaks that sit just north of our home in Big Sky, Montana. Our simple idea was this: to bring a high-quality agave home to Big Sky Country, one that will complement this wild and beautiful landscape. Here, the mountains bring people together. We hope our tequila will do the same.

406 Agave is distilled, bottled, and produced at a generations-old family distillery in Jalisco, Mexico."

"Housing survey reveals need across Big Sky spectrum"

"A survey recently released by the Big Sky Community Housing Trust largely reiterates what most resort town residents already know: Housing is a critical issue that impacts people across the community spectrum.

The set of surveys, one offered to Big Sky employers and one to employees, was intended to inform the housing trust’s future work as well as to characterize the local workforce, according to BSCHT Executive Director David O’Connor."
