Born in Bourbon country and raised in the Rocky Mountains.

A fateful tour of Maker's Mark Distillery in 2009 inspired David Perkins and his wife Jane to start their own operation. David — a former biochemist — basically said, “Hey, I can do that!” and moved his family to Utah and set up shop. Success has come hard and fast, and they now produce and market a range of products including their four core Whiskeys, three current limited releases, two bottled cocktails, and two specialty spirits.

High West plans to donate 10% of their after-tax profits to the American Prairie Reserve in Montana — an unbroken, 5,000 acre tract of land in Montana bing returned to its natural state. Thus the name American Prairie Bourbon. Although High West has production stills, American Prairie is a blend of Bourbons produced by others. They keep the sources and final ratios as trade secrets, but we do know that it is a blend of three — a 2 YO from Indiana, and a 6 YO and 13 YO from Kentucky — all aged in new, dark-char American white oak and served at 46% ABV. They did something right… it has won both a Double Gold and Silver medal in international competitions.
