PARK CITY, Utah (Feb. 2015) —By popular demand, High West Distillery’s super premium blend of bourbon and rye whiskeys is once again available for purchase in saloons and stores nationwide — including, of course, High West in Park City, the world’s only ski-in distillery.


Bourye — pronounced “boo-rye” — is a marriage of a 9-year-old straight bourbon with 10 and 16-year-old straight rye whiskeys, creating a premier sipping whiskey and one of High West’s all-time favorites. Priced at $80 per bottle, the front label is an actual picture of a jackelope drawn in 1743.


“When we first mixed some older bourbons and ryes together in 2009, it was just a crazy experiment and the result blew us away, the blend created a rich and delicious well-balanced sipping whiskey!” High West proprietor David Perkins said. “Although this new version is very similar to the original top-secret formula in whiskey sources, age and taste profile, we think it’s even better because it has a richer longer finish.”  Bourye is a connoisseur’s sipping whiskey, best enjoyed straight or with a little water. “Its nose is rich caramel and vanilla and the taste is thick vanilla, sweet honey nougat, with even more caramel and candied fruits.  The finish is something to behold” Perkins said. “Long, sweet, and complex.”
