Proof66 Notes

Bourye Whiskey is--as the name would suggest--a blend of bourbon (a primarily corn-based whiskey--in this case a 10yr aged bourbon of 75% corn, 20% rye, and 5% malted barley) and rye (a primarily rye-based whiskey--in this case a 12yr aged rye of 95% rye and 5% malted barley as well as a 16yr aged rye of 53% rye, 37% corn and 10% malted barley). According to our records, this suggests that they have blended their Double Rye  whiskey with the addition of a bourbon. The animal on the label is a jackalope: a mythical frontier creature combining some number of regular animals much like their whiskey is an unusual combination. They specifically do not recommend drinking with ice but rather neat or with a little water... preferably "around a campfire while looking at the milky way." They admit that most whiskeys are an "even keel" where Bourye is "more of an adventure."

High West Distillery is proud of both its small status and its western roots. It is currently restoring a 100 year-old livery stable as its future home and the horseshoes in the logo are meant to honor that tradition. In Utah, they are at an altitude of 7,000 feet in the Rockies. They hope that by enjoying their product the consumer is celebrating their "gumption" at bringing spirits back to Utah.
