The High West Distillery in Park City, Utah prides itself on creating handcrafted, small batch spirits. They are Utah's first distillery since 1870 and the world's only ski-in gastro-saloon. In the 1800's, OMG had quite a different meaning than it does today - it stood for Old MononGahela rye. The Monongahela is a river in western Pennsylvania, named after a Latinized version of the Native American word Mechmenawungihilla. This region was the site of America's first civil war, and later became the epicenter of American distilling. Monongahela whiskey was considered so marvelous that it became the standard spirit of the young nation, and was even mentioned in Melville's Moby Dick ("unspeakable old Monongahela") in 1851. The popularity of OMG continued to grow until Prohibition, when the distilleries in Pennsylvania went out of business.

Created from 80% rye & 20% malted rye, High West Silver OMG Pure Rye Whiskey is an un-aged expression of the classic OMG. The nose opens with bright, complex aromas of plum, strawberry, green apple and ripe banana, followed by rye grain, clove, mint and herbs. The smooth, medium-bodied palate offers bold citrus notes balanced by rosemary herbal spiciness. A subtle note of Meyer lemon appears on the lingering herbal finish.
