Benchmark State Liquor Store

Yes! If you are looking for a specific liquor or wine you cannot find on our shelves, let us know and we will happily try to order it for you. We will check with our suppliers and work together to get you your special order. Depending on the product, we may require you to commit to more than one bottle.  Special order supply times vary by product – ranging from weeks to many months. We will reach out once the product arrives to arrange pickup.  

We place several products on sale each month. Check out and follow our social media pages to see which products are on sale right now. 

Yes! They make great gifts. 

Benchmark State Liquor was formerly Kohoutek State Liquor. When we rebranded with our new ownership, we wanted something a little easier to say and spell. Our owner Shawn has always enjoyed hunting and exploring outdoors. Benchmark, by Augusta, is a spot he enjoys and frequents regularly. Along with being a special spot, the definition of benchmark is a standard from which other things may be compared. We pride ourselves on our quality service and expansive selection and always aspire to be the benchmark from which all other things will be compared.

We do! In fact, we have an entire section of shelves dedicated to liquors made in distilleries all over Montana. We love to support other Montana small businesses and hope you do to. 

Sometimes! We have well over 1000 cases of hard (some nearly impossible) to get products on order. Most of these products are bourbon and some of these orders date back over 10 years. These products do hit our shelves sporadically, however. Follow our social media pages to stay up do date when we get these types of products.  

It is against the law to ship alcohol in Montana. We generally only deliver orders to our bar and restaurant accounts. We do occasionally deliver large event orders if customer pick up is not feasible. As an alternative to shipping liquor, we do have gift certificates that we can mail.   

No. It is illegal for a State Liquor Store to sell beer in Montana.
