Out of our 10 finalists, Wyoming Whiskey might be able to say it was born in one of the prettiest places on earth. Along with crafting great whiskey, the distillery has committed to protecting that very landscape through its partnership with the National Park Foundation. That fierce commitment to making an impact is the top reason it landed on our list of 10 finalists for the Craft Distillery of the Year Award. Oh, and did we mention that Harrison Ford stepped in as a creative director for the National Parks Limited Edition bottles? The fact that Wyoming Whiskey also makes really excellent bourbon is just a bonus.
“For 35 years or so, I’ve been lucky enough to have a home in Wyoming. I am proud to work in conjunction with Wyoming Whiskey, my neighbors and friends, in support of the National Park Foundation,” said Ford in a statement. “I’m very proud of what Wyoming Whiskey is doing with this event, as it is important to protect and restore these national treasures and keep them safe for future generations.” Whiskey of the West honoring the wonder that national parks provide to us all.
