High West Announces Limited Release of its Bourbon and Rye Blend

PARK CITY, Utah (February 2017) — High West Distillery, Utah’s first legal distillery since 1870, is unveiling the latest release of Bourye, a premium original bourbon and rye blend. Not unlike the fleeting jackalope found on its one-of-a-kind label, supplies of Bourye will be limited but worthy of the hunt.

Bourye is a unique, high-end specialty blend of old and rich bourbons and rye whiskies ranging from 10 to 14 years old, and is one of High West’s most cherished flavors. “The latest Bourye blend provides a unique sipping experience for whiskey lovers,” said High West Founder David Perkins. “In my opinion, this is our best one yet.”

This premier sipping whiskey pairs a nutty vanilla aroma with tasting notes of sweet honey nougat, caramel, mulling spices, and candied fruits with a long, rich finish of roasted pecan and molasses. “This release has the same familiar richness, but with an even more robust palate,” said High West Master Distiller Brendan Coyle. “I think fans of the original will be very pleased with the latest version.” 

The latest Bourye blend will be sold nationally at exclusive locations, and in the state of Utah at High West’s General Stores in Park City and Wanship for $79.99.
