Barrel aged cocktail.

Grab your skis and head to Quitting Time Ski Run in Park City, High West Distillery & Saloon. Founded in 2006 by David and Jane Perkins, High West is not only the first distillery in Utah since Prohibition, it is the only ski-in gastro-distillery in the world! High West is also pretty damn important because in 1933 Utah was the crucial 36th state to clinch the vote against the 18th amendment and finally end Prohibition. Cheers to these heroes.

Perkins called High West a saloon because he wanted to pay homage to the history of “saloons in the old West and the important role they played in each and every town that had one. The saloon was the main meeting place where town hall was held, important announcements were made, and people went to eat and drink. We want people to share that sense of community and friendship over High West.”

This barrel aged cocktail is a tip of the hat to all tipplers in a top hats. Literally speaking, a Boulevardier was a wealthy and fashionable man who had knowledge of advanced cultural pursuits and frequented Parisian boulevards, New York City and other cosmopolitan cities.

Erskine Gwynne, the creator of the Boulevardier Cocktail, moved to Paris and began his magazine The Boulevardier, catering to the bourgeoisie expatriate. With literary dignitaries (superstars) like Hemingway, Joyce, Sinclair Lewis, and Thomas Wolfe contributing to his monthly piece.

A Boulevardier cocktail is drink mixed with 2 Parts American Whiskey, 1 part sweet Vermouth, and 1 part Campari. The High West’s Barreled Boulevardier is a mix of 6 YO Bourbon with sweet Vermouth and Gran Classico, a bitter Amaro from Switzerland.

The famous cocktail mixture is then aged in American oak Bourbon barrels “where it rests until it reaches perfection.”

Vincent,
The first, and still the best, Boulevardier I've ever had - which is now one of my all time favorite bourbon cocktails...

Rich,
Not as great as a Boulevardier made from your own ingredients but totally drinkable and easy for a quick drink. Liked it much better than the Manhattan version which has been sitting for awhile.

Brandon,
Love the distillery and the products and been there several times (I sincerely miss the original Bourye). Have previously purchased the barreled Manhattan while there but this Boulevardier, especially after being open for a few weeks, is definitely a bit "off." The vermouth definitely is assertive and the aroma and aftertaste are a bit rough.

Amazing. Honey, vanilla, spice, tobacco, smooth!!!!! Must have neat!

Stephen,
This Manhattan-like drink had such great promise. For the most part, all of Flaviar's tasting notes were spot on--especially the cherry and almost-Amaretto sweetness; however, I noticed an off taste right off the bat. The vermouth gave a boldness that would've been quite enjoyable--had my particular bottle not been set for too long on its side. The aftertaste had a very unpleasant corkedness that lingered on the tongue. Tl;dr The bottle I received seemed to have been from a batch made with corked vermouth. It ruined a drink I really wanted to have as go-to.
