The Barreled BoulevardierMADE BY HIGH WEST DISTILLERY IN PARK CITY, UTAH
This isn't your run-of-the-mill bottled cocktail. First off, High West Distillery starts with the best of the best ingredients: top-shelf bourbon, exceptional vermouth (specifically, Vya Sweet Vermouth from another Mouth Maker, Quady Winery) and an out-of-the-ordinary bitter liqueur. They mix the perfect ratio, then age it all in oak barrels until the flavors have harmonized, making for an exceptionally flavorful, well-balanced cocktail.
Basically, it's like having a top-notch bartender at a super-fancy cocktail bar (the kind that barrel ages its own cocktails), hanging out in your living room.
