Wyoming is not just for getting fireworks anymore. Our northern neighbor is also on the frontier of the craft distillery movement.
Wyoming Whiskey in Kirby, in the Big Horn Basin of Wyoming, is an independent, family-owned operation that is a true farm-to-bottle distillery. They locally source non-GMO corn, wheat, barley, and winter rye for specific starch and sugar yields, the building blocks of bourbon making. Their water is pulled from a natural limestone aquifer that gives their whiskey a unique texture and minerality.
Wyoming Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey is aged at least four years. The bourbon is a smooth sipping whiskey with a medium body and subtle flavors of vanilla, caramel, and charred oak, giving way to a gentle toasted, toffee finish.
Their flagship Small Batch Bourbon won medals at four major events in 2015, including the Denver International Spirits Competition, the American Distilling Institute’s Craft Spirits Awards, North American Whiskey & Bourbon Competition, and the 50 Best Bourbon Competition.
Locally, you can get your hands on Wyoming Whiskey, as well as many other worthwhile craft spirits, at Wyatt’s Wet Goods. This large, family-owned liquor store caters to the discriminating whiskey drinker, as well as those just beginning their fine malt journey.
