High West Distillery releases new whiskey
High West Distillery is celebrating Repeal Day — a quasi-holiday honoring the day Prohibition was repealed — by releasing a new whiskey. According to a press release, the whiskey, which was set to be unveiled Saturday, is called Yippee Ki-Yay, made by putting its Double Rye whiskey into oak barrels originally used to age vermouth and syrah. "This unique blend was created from a combination of serendipity and fun experimentation," said David Perkins, High West’s proprietor, in the release. "Yippee Ki-Yay is absolutely delicious with cinnamon and herbal flavors from the vermouth barrels combined with fresh blackberries from the syrah barrels."
