High West's most anticipated release of the year, A Midwinter Night's Dram, is hitting shelves starting this Friday, October 1.

Released annually, A Midwinter Night's Dram is a limited release of High West's Rendezvous Rye finished in French oak ruby and tawny port barrels. Rendezvous Rye is a blend of two straight rye whiskies, a 95% rye, 5% barley malt sourced from MGP, and a 80% rye, 20% malted rye distilled by High West. It's bottled at 98.6 proof.

This year's release marks the ninth in the series and as such, will be labeled as Act 9. The "Scene" designation on the label refers to the bottling run - Scene 5 would come from the fifth day of bottling.

High West's locations in Park City and Wanship, Utah will start selling A Midwinter Night's Dram on October 1 at 11 am. It will also be making its way across the country starting on the same day. Retail pricing is set at $100.
