American Whiskey Varieties
American whiskey is whiskey (a distilled beverage made from fermented grain puree) produced in the United States. The main types of American whiskey are bourbon whiskey, rye whiskey, rye malt whiskey, malt whiskey, wheat whiskey, Tennessee whiskey and corn whiskey. All of them are made from mashed potatoes containing at least 51% of the aforementioned grains.
Mixed whiskeys, whiskey blends, grain whiskeys and distilled whiskeys that do not indicate a dominant grain are also included. ... In the case of blends, American whiskey can include artificial colors and flavors. The laws governing the above products differ between products made for consumption in the United States and those exported abroad.
With a wide variety in one category, American whiskey refers to any spirit drink made in America distilling fermented grain must - usually corn, wheat, rye or barley. American whiskey must be distilled to a maximum alcoholic strength of 95% and bottled with an alcoholic strength of 40% or higher. To be called pure whiskey, it must also be aged in white oak barrels for at least two years and must not contain any added color or flavor.
About the Producer: High West Distillery
High West Distillery is an award-winning Utah whiskey distiller. The company was founded in 2009 by biochemist David Perkins and was the first legal distillery to be marketed in Utah in the 1870s. The first distillery was a small 250-gallon distillery that still stood at the foot of the Park City ski slopes. In 2015, high in the Rocky Mountains near Wanship, a 1,600-gallon copper pot was opened and production was rescheduled. The High West range includes bourbon, two rye and Campfire, an unusual blend of bourbon and rye with Scotch whiskey. Barrel-aged cocktails, vodka and oat whiskey complete the regular lineup, and some limited-edition products appear periodically. High West Distillery was named Pioneer of the Year by Whiskey Advocate Magazine.
