Multi award winning High West Whiskey is gaining momentum in Australia. The core range of Double Rye, Rendezvous and American Prairie Bourbon is now joined by Campfire and A Midwinter Night’s Dram, Rendezvous rye port cask finished whiskey .

High West Distillery was founded in 2006 by David Perkins and his wife, Jane. David, a former biochemist, was inspired to open his own distillery after seeing the parallels between the fermentation and distilling process and his own work in biochemistry during a trip to a whiskey distillery in Kentucky. In 2004, David and his family relocated to Park City, Utah to begin their new venture, where they began distilling in 2007. They chose Park City because of David’s love of the Old West and Utah’s little-known whiskey history.​

High West began with humble roots, opening a small, 250-gallon still and Saloon in an historic livery stable and garage. What was once a small operation in downtown Park City has grown to be an internationally-recognized, award winning brand.

High West Whiskey is great served neat or within a cocktail, for example, The Dead Man’s boots cocktail made with Rendezvous.

High West is now introducing a range of rare barrel select whiskies. The first of which was Rendezvous Rye. The master Distiller, Brendan Coyle personally chooses and blends the barrel selects. A range of these very limited editions will shortly be hitting Australian shores, all with a unique story to tell.
