INFO: High West's 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 supply of whiskey at the second rendezvous in Utah Cache Valley (and all subsequent rendezvous!).
