High West Distillery & Saloon, Utah’s first legal distillery since 1870, encourages whiskey lovers to forego the open flames this summer and instead enjoy a campfire in a bottle with High West Campfire Whiskey®, a blend of scotch, bourbon and rye whiskeys. This limited release bottle of Campfire features custom label artwork crafted by Ed Mell, an iconic artist whose timeless Western landscapes are the perfect tribute to all those working to protect it High West is using the launch of this limited release bottle to encourage whiskey enthusiasts to avoid lighting campfires and drink Campfire instead due to wildfires raging over the West, fire bans across the country, and one of the worst droughts seen in years.

 Since High West’s commitment to preserving and protecting the West is equally as important as crafting world-class whiskey, they’ve chosen to support current wildfire relief efforts by donating $10,000 to the Wildland Firefighter Foundation, a national nonprofit which provides assistance to families of wildland firefighters who have lost their lives or have been injured in the line of duty.
 High West Campfire offers smoky notes reminiscent of the real thing. A blend of bourbon, rye and peated Scotch whisky, ranging in age from 4-8 years old, the spirit begins with scents of caramel, butterscotch, jasmine, sandalwood, leather, pine resin, toasted bread, light smoke and smoldering wood from a campfire the morning after. At first sip, notes of vanilla, honey, toffee with fruit, blueberries and black cherries, chai spices, orange zest and tobacco arrive, closely followed by a long, sweet, spicy and smoky finish.

High West Campfire will be available in Utah beginning Aug. 7. 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.
