High West has made it to Florida? Interesting, they are a Utah distillery.
Is the distillery up and running? Unless things changed, I believe they source their distilled whiskey from MGP in Indiana (and other places) and blend it in Utah. However, unlike other "craft distillers," High West is upfront with the source.

You are mostly correct. Their aged whiskey/rye is sourced from others. They make a vodka, silver whiskey (clear) and low aged whiskey Valley Tan in Utah. I believe they are distilling and starting to age whiskey in Utah, they have a new facility outside of Park City which I haven't been to yet
Nice! Looking forward to tasting the new stuff...High West makes great stuff.
Btw the worst offender of hiding the distilled source is Templeton IMHO: http://www.chicagotribune.com/...-20150714-story.html
They even had to remove the BS "prohibition era recipe" from the label. Also removed the "prohibition recipe story" from their website. Plus they add chemicals to artificially flavor the hooch:
"Kerkhoff said Tuesday that Templeton buys aged rye whiskey from MGP Ingredients and blends it with an “alcohol flavoring formulation” made by Clarendon Flavor Engineers of Louisville to achieve a profile similar to the whiskey his grandfather made during Prohibition."
