High West Toasts 'National Repeal Day' With High Country American Single Malt Whiskey

High West Distillery and Saloon, Utah’s first legal distillery since 1870, will celebrate National Repeal Day in true fashion by releasing a new, exclusive rendition of their High Country American Single Malt whiskey on Saturday, Dec. 5. 

“While we won’t be hosting our annual Repeal Day festivities this year, we encourage local whiskey lovers to toast from home with a bottle – or two—of our new High Country American Single Malt to properly celebrate Utah’s historic vote to end Prohibition 87 years ago,” High West Head of Hospitality Elisabeth Flaherty said. “It is so important for us to recognize this pivotal event in our rich history, and we look forward to raising our glasses for many more years to come.”

Distilled and blended by High West in the Wasatch Mountains, the High Country American Single Malt is a blend of two single malt whiskeys aged 2 to 9 years. This perfect winter sipper begins with seasonal aromas of Grandma’s apple turnover, huckleberry fudge, cardamom pod, dried lavender, oak rocking chair, and smoked lemon rind. Indulge the tastebuds to find notes of Nutcracker cracked walnuts, dried apricots, dark chocolate covered cherry truffles, bear claw pastry, and smoked honeydew melon syrup. The spirit closes out the robust flavor profile with flavors of honeycomb, sourdough toast with white grape jelly, and burnt caramel. Savor this celebratory spirit neat or with a few drops of water while taking in a magnificent Western vista.

The High Country American Single Malt will be available for purchase beginning Dec. 5 exclusively at High West General Store in Old Town Park City and at High West Distillery on Blue Sky Ranch in Wanship, Utah, for $79.99 per bottle. Purchases are limited to two bottles per person.
