Why 7000? Well, it’s the elevation of the High West Saloon in Park City, Utah, where this vodka is distilled from locally grown oats. Aromas of cereal sweetness and citrus with a silky mouthfeel rendered us speechless. This is one of the richest, most lusciously textured vodkas we have ever tasted. In a world of uninspiring, nondescript vodka that’s all gimmick and no flavor, this is a refreshing discovery that we’d climb to the highest mountain to get our hands on.
Utah's first legal distillery since the 1870's, High West started with proprietor and distiller David Perkins' passion to make a great Whiskey. After learning the secrets of distilling and the art of blending, they set up shop in the Rocky Mountains in Park City, Utah. At High West, blends are king, and Mr. Perkins has a knack for choosing the right combinations of whiskeys. An innovator of the highest pedigree, he makes some unconventional and traditional blends. Choosing to take the route of transparency over secrecy, you'll always know what goes into the bottle. Dave sources some of the best ryes and bourbons available from multiple distilleries to blend into his final releases. At the saloon and distillery in Park City they make a mean couple of vodkas. Meanwhile a new distillery has been built just about an hour away where the new make spirit will rest until it is ready to be a part of High West's masterful lineup. As someone once said, there's gold in them thar hills. High West has hit the jackpot!
