High West Bourye Whiskey
"Very interesting indeed. This one is an adventure. A very distinctive, enjoyable whiskey." — Whisky Advocate
Bourye is best enjoyed around a campfire while looking at the milky way. Sip straight or with a little water. Not recommended with ice.
Bourye is a combination of "Bou" for bourbon and "rye" for..well, rye whiskey. Because combining bourbon and rye is a bit unusual, we couldn't help thinking of the jackalope. Honestly, we didn’t think anyone would like the name!
Back Label Story:
The jackalope, also called an antelabbit, is an antlered species of rabbit, a cross between a jack rabbit and an antelope with horns. It is rumored that pockets of jackalope populations continue to persist in the American West, its native home. In the old West, when cowboys would gather by their campfires to sing at night, jackalopes would frequently be heard singing back, mimicking the voices of the cowboys. When chased, the jackalope will use its vocal abilities to elude capture. For instance, when chased by people it will call out phrases such as, “There he goes, over there,” in order to throw pursuers off its track. Legend suggests the best way to catch a jackalope is to lure it with whiskey, as they have a particular fondness for this drink. Once intoxicated, the animal becomes slower and easier to hunt. That’s why High West created Bourye, our proprietary blend of Bourbon and Rye, both favorites of real cowboys and sure to attract even the most finicky of jackalopes. Please see highwest.com for specific details about the different whiskeys in this bottle - we like adjusting things every now and then according to our mood. Bourye is best enjoyed around a campfire while looking at the Milky Way. Important! Jackalopes will attack if cornered or provoked. To avoid injury, quickly fall to the ground, remain calm and still, while humming the Roy Rogers song, “Happy Trails to You.”
