High West Double Rye

High West Double Rye is the flagship rye whiskey produced by High West.

As of 2023, the blend consists of whiskeys aged at least two years and using the following two recipes, one sourced from MGP and the other distilled by High West:

  • 95% rye, 5% barley malt from MGP
  • 80% Rye, 20% Malted Rye from High West Distillery

The same two recipes and sources are used in High West Rendezvous Rye, though Rendezvous features older stocks in the blend.
