High West Western Oat Silver Whiskey
It is a smooth oat based whiskey that has just seen the inside of a barrel, with an elegant, smooth flavor. We use the best ingredients and exact science to distill the elegance from the grain and separate those awful flavors you can get in other white whiskies. Tequila and rum both have their Blanco and anejo, why can’t whiskey? All spirits are born clear and turn brown after aging in a barrel. High West SILVER™ spent all of 5 minutes in a barrel to minimize the barrel’s influence on the taste of the native spirit. We call ours SILVER™ because we distill it in old town Park City, one of the west’s richest silver mining towns.
High West Western Oat Silver Whiskey Story
High West Silver Whiskey™ is produced in very small batches in our traditional copper pot still from plump western grains. We call our whiskey “Silver” for the ore that created Park City, one of the richest Silver towns in the old West. Our Silver Whiskey™ is minimally aged in toasted oak to enhance the grain’s honest flavor. Try it neat, on the rocks, or anywhere you choose a “clear” spirit. High West is Utah’s first distillery since 1879 and the world’s only ski-in gastro-distillery. If you are in Old Town Park City, please stop or ski by to visit and enjoy our contemporary Western comfort food, share our passion for American roots music, and most importantly, learn how we make whiskey.
