Park City is famously known for high-end and remarkable wedding venue locations.

With a small year-round population of under 10,000 residents, Park City sits high in the Wasatch Mountain Range at 7,000 feet. Although relatively small, the region is home to nearly 50 wedding venues, ranging from rustic lodges to luxury mountain resorts.

High West Distillery, located within Blue Sky Ranch, just 25 minutes outside of Park City, nestled high in the Wasatch mountains, is perhaps the most coveted wedding venue for couples planning Utah nuptials.

About High West Distillery

There are few places in the world, let alone the country, where one can get married at a working distillery nestled in a remarkable mountain ranch.

What was once a humble working distillery in downtown Park City has grown into an award-winning whiskey brand with an expansive 20,000-square-foot ranch venue. The distillery is known for hosting whiskey tasting & tours but can also be rented out for private events, such as weddings. Combining a wedding venue and distillery offers a unique opportunity to provide an unforgettable day for both the wedded couple and guests. Whisky-loving couples can enjoy a custom wedding day with an immersive whiskey-tasting experience, while the guests will enjoy the expansive 360-degree-views of the surrounding mountain range & ranch. Guests can also partake in a world-class mixology program, something we’re sure they’ve never experienced before at a wedding reception. The motto here is simple: why compromise when you can have it all?

The distinction is evident from the moment one pulls up to High West Distillery. Featuring modern multi-story windows and surrounded by the expansive Utah wilderness, no details are spared at this location. The rustic exterior architecture is also prominent on the interior, which includes a barrel-staved hallway, exposed wood beams, and modern industrial finishes flooded with natural light.

And yes, if you’re wondering if the whiskey influences the food, you won’t be disappointed. Although High West oozes a luxury, high-end mountain venue, don’t expect dainty dishes here. Instead, think alpine cuisine meets whiskey-infused comfort food.

At the end of the day, your wedding should be exactly how you and your fiance envisioned, without compromises or stress. High West Distillery’s full-service venue helps to achieve just that.
