FROM BEVNET.COM: High West Introduces Limited Edition Rendezvous Rye Featuring Exclusive Artwork By Ed Mell
PARK CITY, UTAH — High West Distillery & Saloon, Utah’s first legal distillery since 1870, releases an exclusive rendition of Rendezvous Rye, an award-winning blend of straight rye whiskeys. The limited release label on the limited release features custom artwork crafted by the iconic Ed Mell, an artist whose timeless Western landscapes bring to life High West’s signature spirit. In keeping with the essence of the original High West labels, Ed crafted the new Rendezvous Rye label to reflect a New West, Meets Old West aesthetic, boasting warm earth tones and a contemporary-inspired cowboy scene. This latest release of Rendezvous Rye will be available beginning Monday, May 3.
“High West’s newest version of our signature Rendezvous Rye gives whiskey enthusiasts plenty of reasons to toast this season,” High West General Manager Daniel Schear said. “We’re thrilled to collaborate with Ed Mell on the custom label, a look and feel which embodies the spirit of the West in a single bottle.”
This limited edition kicks off High West’s transition of the Distillery’s flagship whiskey to a seasonal release. Showcasing the older, more distinguished side of rye whiskey, Rendezvous Rye has evolved to include more of High West’s own coveted pot still rye which brings elements of dried fruit, leather, and candied ginger to the final product. This increased depth and dried stone fruit complexity gives patrons an unforgettable bottle to add to their collection of annual releases featured year to year.
A blend of straight rye whiskeys, this season’s Rendezvous Rye reveals notes of poached pear, bitter orange, ground ginger, lavender, wet sandalwood, and tanned leather on a well-used wooden work bench. Robust flavors of persimmon, dried apricot, snickerdoodle, ginger chews, walnut sauce, and spiced caramels in a cedar gift box are followed by a decadent finish of cocoa nibs, allspice, and toasted oak.
High West Rendezvous Rye will be available beginning May 3. The spirit can be purchased locally at High West General Store in Old Town Park City, High West Distillery on Blue Sky Ranch in Wanship, Utah, or state liquor stores for $69.99 per bottle. The bottle will be available nationwide in store and online by the end of May.
