PARK CITY, Utah — High West Distillery announced their tenth rendition of “A Midwinter Night’s Dram” on September 30. The Dram will be available for purchase starting October 2 and will celebrate a decade of releases and its “cult classic” status among fans.
High West Distillery will also be releasing a limited release blend titled A Midwinter Night’s Dram: The Encore. The Encore uses Rendezvous Rye as its base, similar to the mainline Dram, but ages in white port barrels. The distinct aging process results in a “delicate balance of white stone fruits and herbals that works in harmony with the whiskeys.”
Brendan Coyle, Master Distiller at High West said the following regarding the two whiskeys:
“It goes without saying that A Midwinter Night’s Dram is our most anticipated launch each year. We really started to notice it taking off in the past five or six years, and the line that now forms at the Distillery bright and early on release day speaks for itself. Blending, discovering, and innovating is in High West’s DNA, as exhibited this year by both Act 10 and the debut of The Encore, and we’re constantly looking for unique expressions to bring consumers.”
Both whiskeys will be available in very limited qualities nationwide for $150. The Encore can only be purchased at the High West General Store in Park City, and nowhere else.
