The inspiration for High Wests Campfire Whiskey came to then distillery owner Jim Perkins one morning at the Bruichladdich distillery B&B, when he and his wife smelled peat in the air - the great ladies that made their meals were simmering a bottle of peated whiskey and sugar! Later that night, they brought out dessert of ripe honeydew drizzled with the peated syrup. It was the most unusual, delicious and memorable ending to a dinner Perkins ever experienced.

The combination of melon and sweet smoke really worked - so (naturally...) he thought why not mix sweet bourbon and peat? The main flavor (or melody) is sweet honey from a ripe bourbon. The enhancing flavor (or harmony) is floral fruity spice from a mature rye whiskey. The accent (Satchmo’s gravelly voice!) is the smoke from a peated scotch whisky.

Technical Details

Sweet: A straight bourbon whiskey from 75 percent corn, 20 percent rye, and 5 percent barley malt.
