High West

David Perkins and his wife, Jane, founded High West in 2006 in Park City, Utah. It was Utah's first legal distillery since 1870. High West is known for its innovation in the whiskey industry.

The Birth of High West

David Perkins, a biochemist, was inspired by the Maker's Mark distillery in Kentucky. He combined his scientific skills with his love for the American West and whiskey. High West started in a historic stable and garage in the Rocky Mountains. This gave it a rustic and authentic feel.

The Portfolio

High West is known for its range of spirits, especially rye whiskey. Their products include sourced whiskeys and in-house distilled spirits. Rendezvous Rye, a mix of old and young rye whiskeys, is one of their key products. It is known for its spicy taste and smooth finish. They also make bourbons, limited blends, and vodka.

High West likes to experiment. They have made unique whiskeys like Campfire. This mix of rye, bourbon, and peated Scotch captures the smoky feel of the western frontier.

Innovative Ageing Techniques

High West uses Utah's high altitude and temperature changes to age its whiskey. They think this makes the ageing faster and adds complexity. They also use different barrels for finishing, including those that held Port, French oak, or white wine. This adds subtle flavours to their whiskeys.

Sustainability and Craftsmanship

The distillery focuses on the environment. They use local grains as much as they can. Their distillery restaurant in Park City serves local food for a farm-to-table experience.

Visitor Experience

High West Distillery and Saloon in Park City and their Wanship facility offer tours and tastings. Visitors can learn about distillation and the brand's history, and try their whiskeys.

Awards and Recognition

High West has won many industry awards. This includes prizes from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and Whisky Advocate. These awards confirm High West as a respected name in American whiskey.
