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 the Maker’s Mark Distillery in Loretto, 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.
Chef Carlos is excited to pair a 5 course meal with their excellent bourbon whiskies. High West has four core products, American Prairie Bourbon, Double Rye!, Rendezvous Rye, and Campfire. These four whiskeys showcase High West's phenomenal understanding of spirit distilling.
