History

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 his own work in biochemistry reflected in the fermentation and distilling process during a tour at the Maker’s Mark Distillery in 2001. He became flooded with ideas on how he would do it if he had the opportunity. Five years later, he and his family had saved enough money to move to Park City, and they began distilling in a horses stable in 2007. In 2015, High West opened its own distillery in Wanship, Utah, where now, David and Jane’s company gives its own tours. In 2016, High West was named Distiller of the Year by Whisky Advocate.
