This 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 supple of whiskey at the second in Utah's Cache Valley (and all subsequent rendezvous) In this tradition of importing whiskey from the back east, High West craft this from straight rye whiskeys with high rye mash bills. A higher proportion of malted rye gives this a unique profile with notes of spicy cinnamon, caramel, honey, molasses, dried fruit, and vanilla. It is not chill-filtered, a cosmetic step to remove the natural oils that cause haze when whiskey gets cold.
