High Rye Drifter.
High West distillery is a manufacturer and blender of spirits, located in Park City, Utah, hidden deep within the Rocky Mountains. Founded in 2007 by David Perkins, this petite distillery makes its spirits in small batches. It's the first legally licensed distillery in Utah since the end of the American Prohibition. Most of their spirits are sourced and blended, although they do distil some of their spirits themselves.  
The Rendezvous is made from the intercourse of two straight Rye Whiskies with a different composition but one main theme-Rye. One is a 6-year old Whiskey with a 95% rye content, and the second is a 16-year old Whiskey with a 80% rye content. The "bite" of the younger rye works superbly together with the depth of the mature rye... a relationship where Rye speaks for itself - loudly.

Cocktail know-how:
New York Sour
The Whiskey Sour has lasted as long as it has for a reason. It tastes fantastic. To add a bit of a flourish - and wow your friends - serve it topped with a float red wine, which makes it a New York Sour.
Sounds odd, tastes divine with the wine's slight sweetness complementing the spice of the Rye. 
- 1 1/2 ounces / 50 ml of rye whiskey
- 3/4 ounce / 25 ml of strained, freshly squeezed lemon juice

1. Combine all of the ingredients in a mixing glass, fill the glass three-quarters full with ice cubes,
cover with a Boston shaker tin, and shake vigorously until thoroughly chilled, 15 seconds.
2. Strain into a martini glass.
3. Using a spoon with the back of the bowl resting against the edge of the glass, gently pour the wine over the spoon so it floats on top of the drink.
