High West The 36Th Vote Barreled Manhattan

High West The 36Th Vote Barreled Manhattan

750ML    
Sku: 056530

The 36th Vote™ commemorates Utah’s role as the deciding vote to end Prohibition. In fact, the Utah delegation WANTED to cast the final vote. ”No other state shall take away this glory from Utah” proclaimed the leader of the state delegation and president of the Utah League for Prohibition Repeal. On December 5th 1933 at 5:32 PM EST, satisfied that the thirty-fifth state (Pennsylvania) had ratified, Utah delegate S.R. Thurman cast the last ballot for Utah and the 18th amendment’s fate was sealed. High West Distillery chose the Manhattan for this celebration because of its classic appeal and timelessness - it’s also our favorite mixed drink! We used the pre-Prohibition recipe of two parts rye whiskey to one part sweet vermouth and two dashes of bitters. We then married the mixture in the rye whiskey’s American white oak barrel for 90 days, allowing the flavors to integrate in a well-balanced harmony of the rye’s spiciness, the vermouth’s herbs, and the bitters’ complexity. We hope you take time to celebrate Repeal Day and thank Utah for its role in ending the Noble Experiment.

Wine maker notes
How to Enjoy:
Served Neat or On The Rocks.

> The Name:
The High West Barreled Manhattan is made from two parts of High West's Double Rye! Whiskey, one part sweet red vermouth, and two dashes of Angostura bitters for every 2.5-ounce serving. It was then aged in a 2-year-old rye whiskey barrel for 3-6 months. The addition of the vermouth lowers the pH and the percent alcohol by volume - increasing the break down of the oak's hemi-cellulose, increasing the wood sugars that dissolve into the "cocktail" inside. Because a barrel "breaths", there's also some oxidation of the "cocktail." This mellows out the sharpness of the bitters and vermouth, making what we think is a darn fine elixir. We hope you enjoy tasting this as much as we did making it.

Back Label Story:
“The 36th Vote” commemorates Utah’s role as the deciding vote to end Prohibition. In fact, the Utah delegation WANTED to cast the final vote. “No other state shall take away this glory from Utah” proclaimed the leader of the state delegation and president of the Utah League for Prohibition Repeal. On December 5th 1933 at 5:32 PM EST, satisfied that the thirty-fifth state (Pennsylvania) had ratified, Utah delegate S.R. Thurman cast the last ballot for Utah and the 18th amendments’ fate was sealed. High West Distillery chose the Manhattan for this celebration because of its classic appeal and timelessness. We also think a Manhattan is the perfect mixed drink for the cold weather at this time of year. We used the pre-Prohibition recipe of two parts Rye Whiskey to one part sweet vermouth and two dashes of bitters. We then married the mixture in the rye whiskey’s American white oak barrel for 90 days, allowing the flavors to integrate in a well-balanced harmony of the rye’s spiciness, the vermouth’s herbs, and the bitters’ complexity. We hope you take time to celebrate Repeal Day and thank Utah for its role in ending the Noble Experiment.
