Wyoming Whiskey Introduces Independence Rock

Kirby, Wyoming-based Wyoming Whiskey is proud to announce the launch of Independence Rock, a Wyoming-exclusive limited-edition bourbon that honors the pioneers of the West and their journeys. 

The Oregon, Mormon and California trails all led to Wyoming. Yoked cattle pulled the authors of a future called the West. Pioneers manifested the destiny of a nation with a shared constitution of courage, strength and resolve. All were determined to etch their names on the Register of the Desert by the Fourth of July and celebrate their freedom — or face the unwelcome certainty of winter on the trail.

Independence Rock is made from grains farmed in Wyoming soil, distilled in Kirby by traditional means and created with select barrels from Wyoming Whiskey rickhouses.

​​With the release of Independence Rock, the distillery pays tribute to its home state with a Wyoming-exclusive product, unveiled in honor of the anniversary of Wyoming Whiskey’s first production on July 4, 2009. 

Independence Rock tasting notes:

Nose: Shaved milk chocolate covered in orange syrup and a dollop of cherry compote

Palate: Orange sponge cake drizzled with caramel, complemented by chocolate and cracked espresso bean

Finish: Smooth and round, with soft baking spices complemented by notes of dried cherry

Independence Rock is made up of a mash that is 68% corn, 20% wheat and 12% malted barley. It has an ABV of 49% and is 98 proof. SRP US$79.99. Independence Rock is available now, exclusively in Wyoming.
