Park City’s High West Distillery & Saloon will soon be seeing double — and not because it’s been sneaking shots of award-winning rye. On Thursday, High West will break ground on a second distillery and restaurant as part of a larger western-themed resort in Wanship.
High West is joining forces with Blue Sky Adventures for the project, which includes construction of a large luxury lodge. The project is being billed as the "world’s only distillery and resort."
Blue Sky offers horseback riding, fly-fishing, skiing and other outdoor adventures on its 3,300 acres ranch. James Dumas, the chef at High West, has catered many events at the ranch. And it was that interaction that launched the idea of the resort, officials said.
When completed, in about a year, The High West Distillery at Blue Sky Ranch, should give guests a taste of two enduring symbols of the American West — cowboys and whiskey.
