High West launches a smoky campfire whiskey

The master blenders at High West Distillery in Park City, Utah will launch their newest product, Campfire Whiskey™, at their annual Derby Day party at the distillery and restaurant in Old Town Park City this Saturday, May 5.  Campfire Whiskey™ is a unique blend of Bourbon, Rye, and Scotch whiskeys that certainly sounds intriguing. 

High West Distillery is known for their line of highly rated, blended Rye whiskeys like High West Rendezvous™ Rye whiskey and High West Double Rye!™, but Campfire sounds like something completely different.  Proprietor David Perkins got the idea for Campfire whiskey in Scotland after enjoying a dessert of honeydew melon drizzled with syrup made by simmering peated whisky with sugar; he loved the taste of peat smoke with the melon.  This eventually led him to blend the sweet fruitiness of Bourbon with the smokiness of a blended Scotch and to finish it with spicy, floral notes from a Rye.

Those of you fortunate enough to be attending the High West Derby Day party this Saturday will be able to enjoy Campfire in a Mint Julep.  The rest of us will have to wait for our next visit to Park City, or until Campfire makes it to our local liquor store.
