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.

Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 per cent rye. The grain gives rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavour. Rye was a big seller before Prohibition. After decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. George Washington distilled rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.
