Utah’s High West has been making waves in American whiskey over the past 12 years. From being founded in 2006 as Utah’s first distillery since the end of Prohibition in 1933, the Park City-based operation has expanded to four locations and been purchased by Constellation Brands in 2016, winning several industry awards along the way. One of their best known, and much loved expressions is Bourye. Bourye was first released in 2009 as a curious experimental blend of straight bourbons and straight ryes, that at the time was the only such cross-grain blend available. Wild Turkey’s ‘Forgiven’ and Jefferson’s ‘Chef’s Collaboration’ have subsequently followed suit, but Bourye, as first out the gate, still maintains a dedicated fan base.
