For the third straight year, High West Distillery was selected as a semifinalist for a James Beard Foundation Award. The foundation named High West proprietor David Perkins as one of 20 semifinalists for “Outstanding Wine, Spirits or Beer Professionals.”

“I am thrilled and humbled that we have been recognized by the James Beard Foundation,” High West proprietor David Perkins said. “I say “we” because this would not have been possible without High West’s very talented and passionate team. We all love food and even more so, we love whiskey with food. We consider ourselves missionaries that spread the gospel of whiskey.”

The Beard Awards represent the highest honor that a North American chef, owner, bar or restaurant can attain. They are named for James Beard, a cookbook author and teacher who championed American cuisine. Final nominees for the Beard Awards will be announced Tuesday, March 18, at a ceremony in Chicago. The nominees will be announced live on Twitter (@beardfoundation).
