Notitie

The name is basically from the fact that this is a combination of two different rye whiskeys. Pretty straightforward, How Double Rye came to be? One day, Founder David Perkins had a taste of the two year old whiskey from LDI. He had assumed you didnt want to drink the younger stuff. Well, he really liked the two year old! It was youngish and brash but very spicy and tasty. He then thought we might be able to tame the heat again with the addition of the 16 year old that we had as the older whiskey. It has significantly more dissolved solids from the extra aging and evaporation. Well it really worked and we fell in love with the combination as a not only a mixing whiskey but a whiskey that could stand on its own as a sipper.

Double Rye! - the most excitable member of the High West family - is dedicated to the cowboy in all of us. An unusual shotgun marriage of two rye whiskies from two different distilleries back east, Double Rye! combines a feisty high rye 2-year-old and a saddle smooth 16-year-old. The younger rye has a mashbill with 95% rye/5% barley malt and the older has a more typical rye mashbill with 53% rye and 37% corn. We think the extra age and increased corn adds just enough caramel sweetness and woody vanilla richness to calm the bite of the younger rye for a relationship that works. The resulting combination is bold, balanced, complex and perfect for mixing we like a Double Rye! Manhattan. With a taste profile of cinnamon, clove, anise, eucalyptus buttons, evergreen gin-like flavors and a vibrant finish, Double Rye! is absolutely superb for sipping alone or sharing with other cowboys and good-looking strangers. High West is Utahs first distillery since 1870 and the worlds only ski-in gastro-distillery. If you find yourself in Old Town Park City, please stop (or ski) by to visit us. Wed love to share our passions with you: the American West, our contemporary Western victuals (pronounced and often mis-spelled vittles) and of course, pairing all the above with our greatest passion superb whiskey.
