Bourye is a unique premium blend of rich bourbon and rye whiskeys, making for a premier sipping whiskey and one of High West's best. The jackalope on the label, 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. 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, a proprietary blend of Bourbon and Rye, both favorites of real cowboys and sure to attract even the most finicky of jackalopes.

High West Bourye is best enjoyed by sipping straight or with a little water. Not recommended with ice. The boys at High West particularly enjoy it around a campfire while looking at the milky way. Bourye is a combination of "Bou" for bourbon and "rye" for..well, rye whiskey. Because combining bourbon and rye is a bit unusual, they couldn't help thinking of the jackalope.  Filtration: not chill-filtered, or carbon treated. ABV: 46%. 92 Proof

Wine EnthusiastThe 2017 limited-edition release of this Bourbon-rye blend, all a minimum of 10 years old, perfectly balances sweetness and spice. Rich caramel and brown sugar lead on the nose and palate, finishing with clove, nutmeg and cinnamon sizzle, plus a hint of orange peel.
