In a time where wine and beer seem to be garnering all of the attention, whiskey has become the redheaded stepchild, falling into obscurity as it drops down the ranks of popularity—or has it? Distilleries are on the rise in the United States, and the High West Distillery and Saloon has risen to the top as visitors and locals are rediscovering the enjoyment a very good bottle of whiskey can bring to its imbibers. Park City has always been at the forefront of the biggest trends, and whiskey drinking is yet another wonderful example.
Located at 703 Park Avenue
The oversized distressed wood sign with the shadows of many business names fading away is your first hint that you are about to walk into something different. The mountain peak behind High West makes a beautiful contrast to the rustic design of the exterior of this local distillery. Once inside, the décor is all wood and metal. Dark wood floors and tables, metal chairs and wall décor, and private rooms with painted walls and colorful carpet finish up the design that is both warm and inviting. During the winter, this ski-in business is popular with the après ski group; nothing warms a body like the taste of whiskey as it makes it way down your throat and into your belly!
More Than Just Drinks at the High West Distillery and Saloon
The full menu offered at High West Distillery and Saloon allows you to belly up to the bar a little more than you might if you didn’t have some food in that belly. Not serving your typical bar food, the food selection is sophisticated and unique. Enjoy a charcuterie board with a whiskey salami to start, a smoked beet salad to whet your palate, and a main course of chicken schnitzel served with a parmesan bread crust and a caper butter sauce. Dessert choices include peach crumbles, s’mores and a special treat called the Grillswith which consists of a cinnamon roasted Krispy Kreme donut, vanilla ice cream, and a bourbon caramel sauce.
Ok, we understand we’ve made you wait and you may be feeling a little impatient right now, but the drinks served at High West are worth the wait! Serving whiskey, scotch, rum, and tequila from around the world and offering an innovative cocktail menu, the cold nights in Park City will suddenly begin to warm up!
