Utah might not be the first place that springs to mind when you think of whiskey-making, but the remarkable High West distillery is helping to re-define the state’s reputation.
A quality producer and bottler of American spirits, High West was the first distillery operating in the Beehive State since 1870. High West is located in the only ski-in gastro-distillery in the world, and offering food alongside tours of their site, which now houses a 6,000 litre copper pot still.
This whiskey is clearly inspired by Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ in which fairies use love potions to create chaos and comedy in the heat of summer. High West’s ‘A Midwinter Nights Dram’ flips the script – it is a potion you will love, that warms and comforts in the cooler months.
Bottled at 49.3% and non-chill-filtered, this is a rich and satisfying rye whiskey. Exquisitely presented with a label that recalls Shakespeare’s first quarto, published in the year 1600.
