Rendezvous Rye is a blend of two exotic straight rye whiskies. The marriage creates a full flavored, very complex whiskey. Almost every other straight rye whiskey you can buy today is barely legal, with 51-53% rye in the mash bill. Not Rendezvous Rye. It honors the way rye whiskey used to be made, with a high rye content and full, uncompromised flavor. With Rendezvous Rye, you get a taste of authentic rye whiskey.
Our inaugural whiskey commemorates the first recorded whiskey-fest out West. From 1825 to 1840, the “rendezvous” was the annual summer gathering of mountain men to exchange pelts for supplies. Alcohol was not one of the “supplies” at the first rendezvous. This oversight was QUICKLY corrected with a generous supply of whiskey at the second rendezvous in Utah’s Cache Valley (and all subsequent rendezvous!). In this tradition of importing whiskey from back East (while we age our own whiskey), we craft Rendezvous from two exotic straight rye whiskies both with high rye mashbills (please see HighWest.com for specific details by batch # of the different whiskeys in this bottle). A higher proportion of unmalted rye gives Rendezvous a unique flavor profile with notes of spicy cinnamon, caramel, honey, mint, and vanilla. Rendezvous is not chill filtered, a cosmetic step almost all large companies use to remove the natural oils that cause a haze when whiskey gets cold. This also removes flavor, texture, and the lingering finish we really enjoy. If you see a harmless “haze” in Rendezvous, just swirl the bottle and it will go away. High West is Utah’s first distillery since 1870 and the world’s only ski- in gastro-distillery. Located at exactly 7000 feet in the Wasatch Range of the Rocky Mountains in Old Town Park City, we make spirits for people who want great taste, appreciate quality ingredients, small batches, and the owner’s personal touch. Founded by prospectors in the late 1860’s, Park City became one of the richest silver mining towns in the West and the best watering hole in Utah. The horseshoe on this bottle honors High West’s home, a 100-year-old livery stable. Please visit us when you are in Park City. We invite you to share in our passion for the American West and our gumption to bring spirits back to Utah.
