The jackalope, also called an antelabbit, is an antlered species of rabbit, a cross between a jack rabbit and an antelope. It is rumored
that pockets of jackalope populations continue to persist in the American West, its native home. In the old West, when cowboys would
gather by their campfires to sing at night, jackalopes would frequently be heard singing back, mimicking the voices of the cowboys. When chased, the jackalope will use its vocal abilities to elude capture.For instance, when chased by people it will call out phrases such
as, “There he goes, over there,” in order to throw pursuers off its track. Legend suggests the best way to catch a jackalope is to lure it with whiskey, as they have a particular fondness for this drink. Once intoxicated, the animal becomes slower and easier to hunt (believe it
or not, all this mythology is true, we didn’t make any of this up). That’s why High West created Bourye®, our proprietary blend of mature
Bourbon and Rye, both favorites of real cowboys and sure to attract even the most finicky of jackalopes.
l whiskeys in this carefully crafted blend are a minimum of 10 years old and sourced from multiple distilleries. See highwest.com
for technical details and sourcing, that’s not a secret. However, the proportions are! Bourye® is best enjoyed around a campfire while
looking at the Milky Way. Important! Jackalopes will attack if cornered or provoked. To avoid injury, quickly fall to the ground, remain calm
and still, while humming the Roy Rogers song, “Happy Trails to You” - (we did make this up!).
