New Utah whiskey inspired by The Bard

On Friday, Feb. 14, High West Distillery & Saloon will release A Midwinter Night’s Dram, a high-octane, barrel-aged whiskey named after Shakespeare’s romantic comedy "A Midsummer Night’s Dream." The spirit, which has 49.3 percent alcohol by volume (98.6 proof), is made with Park City distillery’s award-winning Rendezvous Rye and aged for several months in port and French oak barrels. A 750-milliliter bottle costs $79.99.

The rye provides a vanilla, caramel and cinnamon base, the port barrels add flavors of plums and dried fruits, while the French oak adds spice, said High West owner David Perkins. "It tastes like a proper Christmas plum pudding."
