Founded in 2010. No, our story is not a long one. But all traditions have a beginning. Dark Horse is a young upstart, mixed with a bit of maverick and a splash of daring. But don’t confuse our fresh faces for a lack of commitment. We’re committed to our craft. Family owned and family operated, we started Dark Horse Distillery to bring something to Kansas City: bold, pure spirits hand-crafted with conviction, distilled with tradition, delivered with devotion. And while our story may be short, our spirits and passion will leave a lasting impression.
Exceptionally Pure Water: That’s what makes Devils River Whiskey the decorated, smooth small batch whiskey you enjoy today. Legendary Texas Ranger, John Coffee Hays, named this powerful waterway the ‘Devils River’ in 1840, and from his ingenuity, our namesake was born. The naturally-filtered limestone spring water is considered the purest water in Texas. The iron-free, sweet spring water is ideal for crafting an unrivaled Sinfully Smooth Whiskey. It’s purity unmasks all the delightful nuances we worked tirelessly to emphasize in every sip.
Utah’s first distillery since the 1870’s, High West Distillery and Saloon offers a truly unique experience as the world’s only ski-in distillery and gastro-saloon. We are located at exactly 7000 feet in the Wasatch Range of the Rocky Mountains in Old Town Park City, Utah. Founded by prospectors in the late 1860’s, Park City became one of the richest silver mining towns in the West, and the best watering hole in Utah. Our aim is for the High West Distillery and Saloon to contribute to that reputation.
