Beyond the Après Ep. 10 – Old Fashioneds w/High West Distillery

Episode 10 of Beyond The Après w/Steve Walton of High West Distillery

On this episode, Halley and Rich stir it up with Steve Walton, the beverage director at High West Distillery. Since 2006, High West has been known for their award winning bourbon and rye whiskies, and a one of a kind après ski scene in the heart of Park City, Utah.

Call me Old Fashioned

First on the menu is mixing up a batch of a very special High West Old Fashioneds. Thank Utah liquor laws for an extra “flavorful” twist on this classic cocktail utilizing both High West bourbon and rye! Fresh out of bitters? Or maybe low on simple syrup? Well, there’s no need to muddle around, because High West now has premixed and barrel-finished cocktails. So you can have a High West Old Fashioned or Manhattan on the go, and as good as the original. Also a great option to really take your chairlift flask game up a notch!

Today We Ski, Tonight Whiskey

Halley and Steve get nostalgic over their shared Mount Snow roots, sharing tales of White Russians, $2 tots, and other “D-bag” things. Warm conversation and ice cold beverages; this episode is the perfect recipe for après listening and whiskey sipping.
