You don't experiment enough until you need an entirely new name for your creation.

A fateful tour of Makers 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 Whiskies, three current limited releases, two bottled cocktails, and two specialty spirits.

“Bourye” is a combination of the words Bourbon and Rye. High West Bourye Whiskey is harder to define. They’ve been making this concoction since 2015 and each year the configuration is a bit different. But we can say that this year’s edition is a proprietary blend of three Bourbons and two Ryes — all sourced from MGP in Indiana — ranging in age from eleven to fourteen years. The exact ratio is considered a state secret, but the result is an extremely tasty spirit bottled at a perfect 46% ABV. We also know that judges LOVE the stuff — consistently rating this blended dram above 90 points.

Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
In November of 2015, MGP announced its first ever house brand — Metze’s Select Indiana Straight Whiskey. It is a blend of their high-Rye Bourbons, named after the Master Distiller who retired that year. It is not yet available on the market.
Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
