Tasting Notes

Named for the elevation at which the distillery lives, this vodka is distilled from oats. Distillers in the 1800's discovered what a wonderful base oats were when distilled, but due to its high cost and difficulties producing, it was no longer used. The oats provide nuttiness to this vodka that we love.

Staff Pick Notes

Contrary to most people's preferences, I like it when vodka has flavor. Best are the ones that haven't had the character neutralized out of them, the ones that retain traces of what was used to make the spirit. These vodkas are great in simple preparations that show off their special textures and aromas. High West's is one of the cooler ones in this category. The secret is an oat eau de vie that packs big vanilla flavor and a rich, creamy body. It's worth trying if you like un-aged fruit brandy or shochu. Savor this unusually silky vodka by itself or as a stirred cocktail since the qualities might be lost in something shaken or against a lot of other ingredients. I think it would be nice with a little bit of bianco vermouth and an orange twist.
