American Bourbon By Gary Carter / May 20, 2021 Wyoming’s Pine Bluffs Distilling keeps it local, sourcing grains no more than 30 miles away from the distillery. And this summer, Pine Bluffs will celebrate the launch of five new products with a variety of events surrounding their keeping it local theme. Chad Brown, owner of Pine Bluffs Distilling, said in a prepared statement that by sourcing local grains, “That’s how whiskey was meant to be made and that’s a tradition we want to uphold. We are proud that we can support local farmers and they continue to support us. This is truly a community celebration. I mean … whiskey and celebrating go hand-in-hand.” Pine Bluffs Distilling will launch the five new whiskeys this summer across four weekends May through August at its distillery in Pine Bluffs, Wyoming, about 40 miles from Cheyenne.
