High West Distillery & Saloon Restaurant Review

: High West Distillery & Saloon is as much a tourist attraction as it is a favorite dining spot among all who frequent Park City. Located next to the Town Lift at the base of Quittin' Time ski run, it's the only ski-in/ski-out gastro distillery in the world. Several spirits are made on-site, including whiskeys and two vodkas (7000' and 7000' Peach), and tours are offered to give visitors a behind-the-scenes look at the process. Connecting the dining areas in the Victorian-style house and the renovated historic livery stable and garage is a glassed-in private party space with views of the copper stills. Not only does the ambience create the ultimate Western experience, but the eclectic menu from chef James Dumas exudes authenticity. Dishes like the chicken potpie and the High West burger may sound like child's play, but they readily satisfy with locally sourced quality ingredients. The charcuterie and cheese board showcases selections from artisanal dairy farms and Creminelli Fine Meats in Salt Lake City. Many of the menu's comfort food items are infused with High West's own spirits, like the whiskey cider short ribs or the whiskey-and-cheese fondue. Choose a few dishes from the saloon bites (bourbon onion soup, for example) when you can't decide and you'll have room for a dessert shot like the butterscotch budino with caramel and sea salt. More substantial sweets include s'mores made with house-made marshmallows and local chocolate. Kids are welcomed with a Kids Camp menu. A short wine list is available along with a few beers from Utah and signature cocktails like the popular Dead Man's Boots (Double Rye, tequila, lime and ginger beer). High West also dabbles in bottling barrel-aged cocktails, such as The Barreled Boulevardier. At the "General Store," guests can buy gifts and bottles of spirits.
