Located at exactly 7,000 feet in the Wasatch Range of the Rocky Mountains in Old Town Park City, Utah, High West Distillery and Saloon is the world’s only ski-in distillery and gastro-saloon. Started by one man with a passion to make a great Rocky Mountain whiskey, proprietor and distiller David Perkins has been putting his background as a biochemist to use producing everyone’s favorite dark spirit for ages. The latest High West release is Yippee Ki-Yay Rye Whiskey, which puts their Double Rye! sourced whiskey into barrels originally used to age wine. Bourbon barrel beer, or beer barrel bourbon isn’t all that new, but the combination of the “vermouth-ed” and “syrah-ed” whiskey created from the wine barrel aging is all together new. Whether or not you’re using it as a mixer in a Manhattan or drinking it as an aperitif on ice, this whiskey will have you quoting John McClane in no time.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
