High West Manhattan Barrel Finished is a bottled cocktail
that is ready-to-drink and makes 12 drinks. The classic Manhattan cocktail has
a balance of rich sweetness, bitterness, and spice, achieved with sweet
vermouth, aromatic bitters, and High West's own bourbon and rye whiskeys, the
ration being 2:1 in favor of whiskey. The mixture is then aged in used rye
barrels before being bottled at 74 proof.
Situated at the bottom of the Quitting Time Ski Run in
Park City, High West Distillery & Saloon is the first distillery in Utah
since Prohibition and the only ski-in gastro-distillery in the world. "We
wanted to call High West a "saloon", says David Perkins who founded
the distillery in 2006 with his wife Jane, "because we wanted to pay
homage to the history of saloons in the old West and the important role they
played in each and every town that had one. The saloon was the main meeting
place where town hall meetings were held, important announcements were made,
and people went to eat and drink. We want people to share that sense of
community and friendship over High West."
