Bold bronco blend of rich Rye Whiskies

From the first distillery in Utah after the godawful Prohibition comes a true Americana bottle of the wild wild west and frontier adventure. It’s a celebration of saloons, the focal point of socializing in America. Inspired by Buffalo Bill and horseback desperados, High West Yippie Ki-Yay is a perfect and peculiar blend of a couple of Rye Whiskeys: a daring two-year old that was fermented with a special top secret yeast; and a wild and smooth 16-year-old bad boy that spent its finishin’ time in oak casks that used to house Californian Vermouth and Syrah.

Yippie Ki-Yay, which was a cowboy’s way of expressing joy, and one NYPD cop’s way of expressing gleeful vengeance, is a lovely rose gold concoction that would turn every hostile saloon into a merry wild west camaraderie. This expression used to be an exclusive offering at High West locations, but we got some of this sweet sauce just for you. Let’s say a horse and a cargo carriage just happened to wander into our premises. Howdy!

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.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
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.
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.
