Half-Bottle of High West Old Fashioned Barrel Finished Cocktail

Item # 48019 375mL

Already famous for their whiskies, High West have been early adopters to the ready to drink category and their smart interpretations on classic cocktails have always been among the best. Using both Straight Rye Whiskies & Straight Bourbon along with bitters and then barrel aged together, the final cocktail is bottled at a generous 43% abv. and is a perfectly balanced sip each time. Very impressive.

Staff Pick Notes

The appeal of a RTD (ready-to-drink) cocktail for me is that, even though I technically could prepare one myself, I sure love the luxury of not having to! The High West Old Fashioned Barrel Finished Cocktail is a great example of the new heights of quality, elegance, and innovation in the category. They could have just thrown some bourbon, bitters, and simple in a bottle and it probably would be pretty good, but High West took it further by using both straight bourbon and straight rye whiskies, providing sweet corn and dry rye spice notes. Unrefined raw sugar and bitters are added and then the cocktail is aged in second-use rye whiskey barrels. This last step integrates the flavors and results in a complex and compelling drink that takes mere seconds for you to prepare at home.
