High West in Top 25
The Utah Valley Entrepreneurial Forum has named Park City’s High West Distillery
one of its “Top 25 Under Five,” which spotlights successful companies that have started up in the past five years. High West proprietor David Perkins says, “We’re very pleased to be included in UVEF’s Top 25 Under Five. We have worked hard for the last five years to just get into business, so it’s a great honor to know we’re actually making a contribution to the job market here in Utah during this very long and deep recession.”
