Vodka 7000′

Vodka 7000′

The heart of Vodka 7000' comes from our favorite grain, oats.
How to Enjoy:

Best enjoyed where vodka is the primary ingredient, like neat, or on the rocks, or in a dry martini. That way you'll actually be able to taste the richness we distilled into Vodka 7000'.

The Name:

7000' is the exact elevation of High West Distillery's bar. Vodka 7000' pays tribute to our high-altitude locale and its unique attributes, which lead to a great tasting vodka. Here in our mountains, pure snowmelt is naturally filtered in deep rock aquifers to produce great-tasting water with a well-balanced mineral content. We combine this superb water with carefully distilled oats to give Vodka 7000' its silky-smooth taste and rich mouthfeel. .

Back Label Story:

Vodka 7000’ originates high in our mountains as free-range snowmelt, naturally filtered in deep rock aquifers. This produces great tasting water with a well-balanced mineral content. The heart of Vodka 7000’ comes from our favorite grain, oats. According to old manuals, distillers from the 1800’s considered oats to make a superior tasting libation. Oats aren’t used today because of their high cost and difficulty to distill – we think their subtle nutty and vanilla flavor is worth the extra effort. Our manually operated Copper Post Still gives us more deliberate control in selecting the most flavorful “heart” of the delicate oaten flavor. The combination of our carefully distilled oat spirit and special water creates a silky smooth tasting vodka with a rich mouth feel. High West Distillery & Saloon is Utah’s first legal distillery since 1870 and the World’s only Ski-in Gastro-Distillery located at exactly 7000’ at the base of the Town Lift in the heart of Old Town Park City, Utah. High West makes spirits for people who want great taste and appreciate quality ingredients, small batches and the owner’s personal touch. Our saloon is a quaint, family friendly, full-service restaurant and bar where visitors can refuel and refresh in our renovated 100-year-old livery stable and Victorian mining era home, both listed on the National Register of Historic Places. If you like great spirits, contemporary Western comfort food and American roots music, you ought to come and visit us when you are in Park City.

Vodka 7000' is distilled in small batches in our manually operated copper pot still. This gives us more deliberate control in selecting the most flavorful "heart" of the delicate oaten flavor. The result is a creamy, full-bodied vodka with citrus notes and a long finish. Oats distilled to perfection, can produce this distinctive, rich flavor. Enjoy it aprés ski or anytime you want a unique taste of our mountains. Distilled in Park City, Utah.
