Marv says: High West Distillery is the first legal distillery in Utah since around the beginning of the 20th century. High West sells many straight whiskys from their Rendezvous Rye to their Silver Oat as well as a couple of vodka choices. Visiting their Park City distillery and restaurant is a treat. Housed in an old livery house and mansion on Park City’s Main Street, they offer two different bars as well as a restaurant. Their cocktail list is dominated, of course, with offerings that use their in house spirits. They also feature a respectable bar with standard fair leaning to the higher shelf liquors available in Utah. Be sure to make reservations for a tour and at the end of the tour, enjoy a flight of their offerings. The standard High West flight will include the Silver Oat un-aged whisky, Double Rye (the newest offering), Bourye bourbon and rye straight whisky blend and a 21 year rye. I particularly like the Bourye and Silver Oat. Live music is featured weekly and they serve local beer as well. Well worth the drive to Park City, make High West a stop the next time you want to escape the valley.
