A limited release of High West Rendezvous Rye finished in French oak port barrels.

How to Enjoy

We recommend that you enjoy this special spirit neat, due to its many layers of complexity, next to a warm fire as the snow piles up on the window sill. It also pairs beautifully with fig cookies!

The Name

Named after “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” by William Shakespeare.

Back Label Story

“Are you sure That we are awake? It seems to me That yet we sleep, we dream.” – Demetrius, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Act 4, Scene 1 – Wm. Shakespeare
Greetings good gentles and ladies. At High West, we consider whiskey an indispensable part of making it through the long cold winter. One taste of A Midwinter Night’s Dram alongside a cozy fire will surely transport you to a dreamlike state. This limited release whiskey is a sumptuous marriage of our Rendezvous Rye finished in both port and French oak barrels. The rye forms a beautiful base of vanilla, caramel and cinnamon; the port barrels enhance with plums and dried fruits; the French oak provides a spice accent. For us, A Midwinter Night’s Dram tastes like a proper Christmas plum pudding with lovely mulling spices, dried fruits, and crème anglaise.
So join us good ladies and gents. Gather ‘mongst thy family and friends, and raise thy glass to winters that are “Swift as a shadow, short as any dream; Brief as the lightning in the collied night.” – Lysander, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Act 1, Scene 1, Wm. Shakespeare
Lysander describes how quickly true love can vanish. This is how we feel about a dram of this whiskey. However, if you savor it slowly, we can attest that A Midwinter Night’s Dram will help you through the coldest night.
Fare thee well, David Perkins

    Great price, great service, great dram!

    I shop around...a lot! Del Mesa Liquor regularly has great pricing on the items I'm looking for. Not only do they process and ship the order quickly, they have a good customer experience program that keeps me coming back. Finally, the Midwinter Night's Dram is GOOD! Really good. You gotta like rye with this release but if you do, give this a taste!

    Description

    High West Distillery was founded in 2006 by David Perkins and his wife, Jane. David, a former biochemist, was inspired to open his own distillery after seeing the parallels between the fermentation and distilling process and his own work in biochemistry during a trip to the Maker’s Mark Distillery in Loretto, Kentucky. In 2004, David and his family relocated to Park City, Utah to begin their new venture, where they began distilling in 2007. They chose Park City because of David’s love of the Old West and Utah’s little-known whiskey history (see Utah’s Distilling History for more).

    High West began with humble roots, opening a small, 250-gallon still and Saloon in an historic livery stable and garage. What was once a small operation in downtown Park City has grown to be an internationally-recognized brand with four unique locations.  In 2015, High West opened their distillery in Wanship, Utah, which acts as a space for educational whiskey tasting, pairings and tours, and houses a 1600-gallon copper pot still. Meanwhile, the Saloon continues to operate as a must-visit gastro-distillery, featuring alpine-inspired western fare alongside the original still, the Nelson Cottage offers unique whiskey-paired dinners, and the Saloon at the Salt Lake City airport allows for some last tastes of High West on the way out of town.
