On this episode we are heading to Park City Utah to drink through an incredible lineup from High West Distillery. In 2006 High West became Utah’s first legal distillery since 1870. They’d been making waves in the industry well before Whisky Advocate named High West the Distiller of the year in 2016 with excellent barrel aging and finishing. We got to taste through almost everything they offer, not quite everything but pretty close, including a barrel aged cocktail at the very end. If you’re a fan of High West, you’re going to love this episode and if you’re not yet I’m sure you will be when you’re done. We were joined by Philip Dobard of the Cocktail Museum, yes that does exist and yes it is as fantastic as the images you’re probably conjuring.
