Product information

High West Distillery is passionate about the American West’s natural beauty. That’s why we want to raise awareness of one of the most fantastic projects of our time: the American Prairie Reserve in northeastern Montana. This is an amazing effort to assemble the largest wildlife reserve in the lower 48 states. When stepping onto the plains of American Prairie Reserve, it’s easy to imagine the landscape as Lewis and Clark and Native Americans saw it, with thundering herds of bison, racing bands of pronghorn antelope and prairie dog towns dotting the horizon. When complete, the Reserve will be approximately 5,000 square miles; larger than Yellowstone, Yosemite, and Grand Teton National Parks combined. Go to americanprairie.org to learn how to visit and support this worthy cause. Capable of running at speeds up to 55 miles per hour, the pronghorn Antelope is North America’s fastest land mammal and performs the continent’s second longest land migration of more than 500 miles. Because of their love of travel, pronghorn require large areas of open and intact grasslands. Moreover, pronghorn populations have decreased 98% since the 1800’s due to habitat destruction. American Prairie Reserve helps pronghorn through its ongoing fence removal efforts and by conserving wildlife corridors. Our American Prairie is a carefully crafted blend of straight bourbons at least 2 years old, (sourced whiskeys, see highwest.com for details) making a great sipper and thoughtful person’s whiskey. High West pledges to donate 10% of our after tax profits from the sale of this bottle to the American Prairie Reserve. Be thoughtful and help us protect and preserve America’s natural resources. •TTB designation: A Blend of Straight Bourbons •Whiskey #1: 2-year-old bourbon MGP Seagrams Indiana; mashbill 75% corn, 20% rye, 5% barley malt. •Whiskey #2: 6-year-old bourbon from Kentucky (cannot disclose source). •Whiskey #3: 13-year-old bourbon from Kentucky (cannot disclose source). •Ratio of whiskies: top secret! •Bottled at 46% ABV •Filtration: not chill-filtered, not carbon treated •Barrel type: new charred quercus alba (white American oak)

Producer information

Utah’s first distillery since the 1870′s, High West Distillery and Saloon offers a truly unique experience as the world’s only ski-in distillery and gastro-saloon. We are located at exactly 7000 feet in the Wasatch Range of the Rocky Mountains in Old Town Park City, Utah. Founded by prospectors in the late 1860′s, Park City became one of the richest silver mining towns in the West, and the best watering hole in Utah. Our aim is for the High West Distillery and Saloon to contribute to that reputation. We invite you to share in our passion for great spirits, and our love for the American West. HOW IT ALL STARTED High West Distillery and Saloon started with one man’s passion to make a great Rocky Mountain Whiskey. Proprietor and distiller David Perkins married his background as a biochemist, his love of bourbon and cooking, and his passion for the American West to bring the craft of small-batch distilling back to Utah, of all places
