About High West Distillery

High West Distillery is a historic wedding venue located in Kamas, Utah. This unique destination is home to a distillery that was inspired by the owner, David Perkins, and his biochemistry background. High West Distillery was founded in 2006 and distilling began in 2007. Everything started with a 250-gallon still as well as a saloon that was crafted inside a historic livery stable and garage. The year 2015 saw the opening of a second location where educational sessions and tastings take place. The original saloon drawing in waves of crowds who seek to visit the alpine-inspired gastro-distillery. Since finding success, High West Distillery has entertained visitors through tours, tastings, and charming banter. For weddings, the High West Distillery is a fantastic option for those who are looking for a mountain experience. It sits atop a picturesque mountainside that is just steps from one of their premier, 1,600-gallon copper pot stills.

    High West, an excellent choice

    I booked through High West just over a month away from our date because our original venue cancelled due to the pandemic. However, you would never know that we had to change plans to High West last minute with how amazing the staff is!!!! Melissa took such good care of me, keeping me calm, figuring out the logistics for our pandemic wedding, and just generally being a wonderful human! High West made our wedding absolutely amazing and gorgeous, our guests are still raving about the food (try the brussel sprouts if you get the chance!!!). They took huge pride in the details, such as creating a cocktail menu with our cats and giving great suggestions to find a little humor in our wedding favors. I would highly recommend them to anyone, especially for a pandemic wedding. They truly care about their brides and put their hearts into the event. High West deserves the highest praise!

    High West Distillery

    We had our wedding at High West Distillery in Wanship at the end of August. The atmosphere, scenery, and overall experience was 10 out of 10. The service was very detailed from start to finish. Becky Gedmin, our wedding coordinator, was very professional and made our planning process flawless. The food and drinks were amazing. The venue played a huge part in our wedding, highly recommended!

    My Wedding Dream Come True

    Once I saw a picture of this venue I was sold, then I spoke to Melissa, and any idea of getting married anywhere else stopped. This was the most amazing experience I've ever had both in planning and my wedding day. I didn't have a wedding planner, I had someone better, Mel who is head of the events at High West. High West is basically a one stop shop, the venue for ceremony and reception, food, drinks, seating tables, it's all taken care of. We added very minimal florals, and a band. That's it! Everyone that attended said it was the most beautiful and memorable wedding they've ever been to and I couldn't agree more. I am an event planner and I've never seen anything executed so flawlessly. The venue is breathtaking, absolutely breathtaking, the food is INSANE with generous portions and the drinks are incredible. I can't say enough about the whole experience, it still feels like a dream, and what's crazy about all of this is that it is extremely affordable! The best part for me was the opportunity to work with Mel. When planning a wedding in a little over a month during cover, I was worried, but Mel made it so easy to get everything done and exactly the way I wanted it. Whenever I had a request or question she made it happen.

    To any bride reading this, book High West for your wedding. I am very particular, I have grand ideas and I'm rarely ever wowed, but High West surpassed everything. Thank you to the incredible staff and most of all, thank you Mel, you are now a friend for life.

    Madison - you were a dream to work with and your guests were so gracious. Covid had made so many things uncertain but you and Chris proved that love finds a way! We are honored to have been a part of your love story.
