Since we can’t venture into bars in many states, it’s not as easy to enjoy a sophisticated craft cocktail. For those who miss sipping on an Old Fashioned or Manhattan, because they just don’t taste the same at home, as they do when made by your favorite bartender, The High West Distillery makes the most elegant and spirit-forward ready to drink bottles.
During the holidays, the bottles are so attractive, that they make wonderful gifts for your spirit-loving friends and family.
The High West barrel-finished Old Fashioned is simple, elegant and ideal for whiskey lovers.

They add a little unrefined raw sugar, bitters and a touch of orange extract to enhance full flavor of the drink.
Aroma notes include the essence of Cassia bark, licorice root, eucalyptus, orange spice tea, and sandalwood. Tasting flavors include orange cinnamon bun, dried cherry, sassafras, and allspice. The finish offers some hints of black pepper, cola and cinnamon. ABV / Proof43%/86
