High West Vodka 7000' is named after the exact elevation of High West Distillery's bar. The name pays tribute to the unique attributes this high altitude provides. Within these mountains, pure snowmelt is naturally filtered in deep rock aquifers to produce great-tasting water with a well-balanced mineral content. This superb water is combined with carefully distilled, locally grown oats to give Vodka 7000' its silky-smooth taste and rich mouthfeel.
According to old distilling manuals, distillers from the 1800's considered oats to make a superior tasting libation. Today, oats are no longer used because of their high cost and difficulty to distill. But High West believe their subtle nutty and vanilla flavour is worth the extra effort. That's why they've created Vodka 7000', the only vodka in the world that's made from oats.
