The spirit, available only at High West Distillery & Saloon in Park City, has 49.3 percent alcohol by volume (98.6 proof). It is made with High West’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."

Midwinter Night’s Dram has a limited release and initially will only be available at the High West Distillery, 703 Park Ave, in Park City.

Perkins said by October, it should be on liquor store shelves nationwide.
