The ‘Whiskey of the West’ remains true to its commitment to protect the wildlife and wide open spaces of its home state of Wyoming
Wyoming Whiskey announces the release of its limited edition Wilderness straight bourbon whiskey in tandem with the brand’s continuing partnership with Yellowstone Forever, the official nonprofit partner of Yellowstone National Park. The collaboration was born in honor of preserving the beauty and wonder of the brand’s home state of Wyoming. The Wyoming Whiskey Wilderness bottle is available on a limited basis in Yellowstone National Park, in the brand’s Kirby Distillery Shop and Jackson Barrel House.
Similar collaborations by Wyoming Whiskey, such as the National Parks series contributed over $120,000 to the National Park Foundation in 2021, and $150,000 to Yellowstone Forever in 2022. With the release of Wilderness, Wyoming Whiskey continues on a steadfast mission to support the nation’s sacred outdoor spaces with this year’s initiative.
“Yellowstone has played a profound role in the development of Wyoming Whiskey and the enrichment of our local community,” said David DeFazio, Co-Founder of Wyoming Whiskey. “Our continued partnership with Yellowstone Forever recognizes the significance of the Park and provides the perfect opportunity to support its conservation needs.”
“Yellowstone Forever is proud to have Wyoming Whiskey on board once again as a partner in Yellowstone’s future. Their continued commitment to preserving the world’s first national park will help ensure that the next generation experiences a vibrant and thriving Yellowstone,” said Lisa Diekmann, President & CEO of Yellowstone Forever.
For every bottle sold of Wyoming Whiskey Wilderness from May 2023 until supplies last, Wyoming Whiskey will donate $5 to support Yellowstone Forever in preserving Yellowstone National Park for the next generation.

About Wyoming Whiskey—The Whiskey of the West
Based in Kirby, Wyoming, Wyoming Whiskey has had a simple goal: to create America’s next great bourbon. That goal has evolved to include all whiskies. The company and their products are 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, winter wheat, winter rye, barley, and water from the Bighorn Basin and promote Wyoming’s natural and human resources. Every drop of this bourbon is 100% Wyoming.
