High West Distillery is adding an American Single Malt to their line-up. High West High Country American Single Malt is made in copper pot stills high in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. As admirers (and imbibers) of the famed single malt whiskies of Scotland, we wanted to create a uniquely crafted version of American single malt. To Provide the robust, flavor-forward profile more typical of American Single Malt is distilled “on-the-grain”. This means that we leave the grain in during fermentation and distillation, instead of filtering it out. In the tradition of American and Scottish whiskey making, we use both freshly charred and second-use oak barrels during the maturation stage. These techniques produce a whiskey that shows its distinctive and delicious American qualities with a heavier mouthfeel, roasted malt character, and balanced complexity. High Country American Single Malt is best enjoyed neat or with a few drops of water while appreciating a magnificent western vista.
