High West Distillery & Saloon, Utah’s first legal distillery since 1870, invites whiskey lovers to enjoy the new limited release of High West Campfire Whiskey, featuring artwork by iconic Western artist Ed Mell.
The new Campfire release just happened to coincide with the wildfire that threatened Summit Park and Pinebrook recently. So, the crew at High West say that they “ encourage whiskey lovers to forgo the open flames this summer and instead enjoy a campfire in a bottle with High West Campfire Whiskey.”
They added that the limited Campfire release and the Western landscapes of artist Ed Mell “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.”
In addition, the folks at High West said “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.”Like a cozy campfire, the release of Campfire Whiskey – a blend of bourbon, rye and peated Scotch whisky – offers up smoky notes with vanilla, dark fruit, orange and honey flavors. High West Campfire Whiskey can be purchased locally at the 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.
