“High West is all about seeking out adventure, and there’s no better place to do that than the West. I was lucky enough to grow up exploring this incredible place, learning to snowboard, skateboard, and even mountain bike here, and it’s so important to me that people have the same opportunity I once had. It’s pretty cool to be able to team up with not just my favorite whiskey but one that shares my same passion for preserving the West.”

“You don’t have to look too far outside the doors of our Saloon or Distillery to see the West is in danger. Like Shaun, High West is a team made up of adventurers who appreciate all the West has to offer, which is why the Protect the West initiative hits home for all of us. Our passion for this cause is only growing, and we’re honored to have Shaun’s support in driving more urgency and action.” said  Daniel Schear, General Manager of High West
