A Midwinter Night's Dram Act 11 bottle

High West Distillery partnered with Speakeasy Co. to make their most exclusive whiskey, A Midwinter Night’s Dram Act 11, available DTC to California-based consumers.

High West Distillery, of Constellation Brands, began in Park City, Utah, in 2006, becoming the state’s first legal distillery since 1870. The award-winning distillery recently partnered with Speakeasy Co, an eCommerce solution that allows alcohol brands to remain three-tier compliant with its centralized fulfillment system and fully owned warehouses, to bring their favorite whiskies directly to consumers. The partnership with Speakeasy is a significant milestone for High West, offering expansion to new markets and enhancing the customer experience.

As the demand for High West’s most coveted SKU continues to grow, Speakeasy makes it possible to offer convenient access to the distillery’s most exclusive offering. A Midwinter Night’s Dram Act 11 is made from High West’s Rendezvous Rye whiskey expression and is finished in ruby and tawny port barrels.

Last year’s blend earned 96 points from the Wine Enthusiasts Top 100 Spirits of 2022. Sold in limited quantities each year, the current release is expected to sell out quickly.

“We are excited to launch DTC just in time for the annual release of our cult-favorite whiskey,” said Daniel Schear, general manager of High West. “We have thousands of out-of-state visitors at our distillery and saloon in Utah each year, and Speakeasy makes it possible for us to reach those customers and fans year-round, especially with decreased shipping times.”

“The Speakeasy team is pleased to support High West’s DTC expansion to California,” said Michael Bowen, COO and co-founder of Speakeasy. “We’re certain the upcoming launch will be a huge success for the brand and we’re eager for what is to come in the future of our partnership.”

Currently, fans in select states can join the Saloon Society to receive 5-shipments per year from High West. Starting on November 3rd, 2023, California based customers can purchase A Midwinter Night’s Dram Act 11 and 19 other SKUs online to receive orders right at their doorsteps.
