Based in Kirby, Wyoming, Wyoming Whiskey has had a simple goal: to create America’s next great bourbon. The company and product is a collaboration between its partners and 97,818 square miles of Wyoming. The Mead family first came to Wyoming as ranchers in 1890 and the state defines them, and their whiskey. They use the finest corn, wheat, barley, and water from the Big Horn Basin and promote Wyoming’s natural and human resources. Every drop of this bourbon is 100% Wyoming.
Wyoming Whiskey is one of the only independent distilleries that make their own whiskey. I know it seems like there are a lot small distilleries but most are actually buying bourbon from a massive distillery, finishing it in barrel, then slapping their label on it. That’s not the case at WW & it’s a really good thing too because what they do is way better.
We’ve got their super limited production of Outryder Rye. It’s not a bourbon. It’s not a true rye. The result is a incredibly unique spirit that’s great for sipping or making cocktails. This Straight American Whiskey is a blend of two distinct mashbills, an almost Rye Whiskey and a High Rye Bourbon, that represents Wyoming Whiskey’s first use of Rye.
