The first High West barrel select outside of the USA has landed in Australia! We are honoured the folks at High West have partnered with us to bring this incredible whiskey to our shores.
High West Distillery was founded in 2006 by David Perkins and his wife, Jane. David, a former biochemist, was inspired to open his own distillery after seeing the parallels between the fermentation and distilling process and his own work in biochemistry during a trip to a whiskey distillery in Kentucky. In 2004, David and his family relocated to Park City, Utah to begin their new venture, where they began distilling in 2007. They chose Park City because of David’s love of the Old West and Utah’s little-known whiskey history.
High West began with humble roots, opening a small, 250-gallon still and Saloon in an historic livery stable and garage. What was once a small operation in downtown Park City has grown to be an internationally-recognized, award winning brand.
This barrel select has been blended and chosen for us by High West Master Distiller Brendan Coyle.
If you're a fan of the highly sought-after annual release, A Midwinters Nights Dram (Rendezvous rye port cask finished whiskey) you won't want to miss out on this WHA limited release!

The first month of the new year has gone quicker than the cowboys on John Dutton’s Yellowstone ranch can neck a shot of full-proof, single malt. So, before the sun sets on another Aussie summer it’s important we stop and savour the moment. And there’s no better way to do that than with a glass of good whiskey. John Dutton knows this. As do our good mates at Whiskey Hunt Australia. Read More
