“We use a combination of two yeasts to ferment our non-GMO grains, which creates a
unique base profile. And we use great barrels from Independent Stave. But anyone
could gather those components and reach the same point. It’s the maturation
environment in Wyoming that defines our Whiskey and sets it apart from the lion’s
share of products on the shelf.
Our barrels mature in warehouses surrounded by sage and rangeland grasses, not bluegrass. And daily temperature swings can be as great as 50 degrees in the summer months, with seasonal temperature swings of 130 degrees.”
Wyoming Whiskey, based in Kirby, WY, is a small-batch distillery that bets on family, cooperation, terroir, high-quality ingredients, and bringing all that together into fine sipping Whiskey. Every drop is made in Kirby and aged in one of their six rickhouses. Local grains, no GMO, and crystalline water that filters through ancient limerock. Six Bourbons, six masterpieces of the Bighorn Basin.Find out more >
