High West Unveils ‘A Midwinter Night’S Dram™

Limited release whiskey available just in time for Winter

PARK CITY, Utah (October 17, 2014) — Utah’s favorite craft distillery is serving up a taste of the Bard.

High West Distillery & Saloon, Park City’s award-winning ski-in gastro-distillery, is pleased to announce the nationwide release of its latest creation, A Midwinter Night’s Dram™. Named after Shakespeare’s, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” the first bottling of this whiskey debuted Valentine’s Day 2014. “People enjoyed it so much we knew we had to make more,” High West proprietor David Perkins said, “Just in time to keep merry toastmasters and their loved ones warm through the winter.

”A Midwinter Night’s Dram™ is a limited-release of High West’s award-winning Rendezvous® Rye whiskey, finished for several months in a combination of port and French oak barrels.

“The rye forms a beautiful base of vanilla, caramel and cinnamon, the port barrels add plums and dried fruits, and the French Oak adds a spice accent,” explains Perkins, “It tastes like a proper Christmas plum pudding with lovely mulling spices, dried fruits and crème Anglaise. We knew this was just the perfect libation for the middle of a long, cold winter.

”Rated 90 points by Whiskey Advocate Magazine, A Midwinter Night’s Dram™ joins 11 other award-winning High West spirits. Bottled at 98.6 proof (“So it goes in at body temperature,” jokes Perkins) and priced at $79.99 per bottle, it will go on sale in select liquor stores nationwide in late September…just in time for Winter.

“Whiskey is an indispensable part of making it through Park City’s long, cold winters,” Perkins said. “In ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream,’ Lysander describes how quickly true love can vanish. We feel the same about a dram of our new whiskey. But rest assured, if you savor it slowly, we can attest that A Midwinter Night’s Dram™ will help you through the coldest night.”
