Wyoming Whiskey recently announced the release of its limited edition National Parks No. 2 straight bourbon whiskey, as the brand continues its partnership with Yellowstone Forever, the nonprofit partner of Yellowstone National Park.
The collaboration emerged from the celebration of Yellowstone National Park’s 150th anniversary.
The Wyoming Whiskey National Parks No. 2 bottle is the second limited edition release in their annual National Park series, which debuted in April of 2021. The whiskey is now available in Yellowstone National Park and throughout Wyoming, as well as in select U.S. markets and online.
Last year’s inaugural release of Wyoming Whiskey’s National Parks series contributed more than $120,000 to the National Park Foundation in 2021.
A statement from Wyoming Whiskey notes that they’ve committed to donating $150,000 to Yellowstone Forever in the park’s historic 150th year.
Yellowstone Forever supports Yellowstone National Park through three main initiatives: Wildlife Forever, Trails Forever, and Here Forever.
Wildlife Forever focuses on conservation efforts encompassing all the species that call the park home. Trails Forever supports ongoing trail maintenance as well as new initiatives. Here Forever supports the park on climate and environmental related projects to increase efficiency within the park and reduce the overall environmental impact.
For every bottle sold of Wyoming Whiskey National Parks No. 2 (suggested retail price $69.99) from now until supplies last, Wyoming Whiskey will donate $5 up to a maximum donation of $150,000 based on distributor depletions to support Yellowstone Forever in preserving Yellowstone National Park.
“Wyoming Whiskey was born on the doorstep of Yellowstone and it has played a profound role in the development of our brand and the enrichment of our people,” said David DeFazio, co-founder of Wyoming Whiskey. “Our partnership with Yellowstone Forever recognizes the importance of the park and provides the perfect opportunity to support current and future conservation needs.”
Lisa Diekmann, president and CEO of Yellowstone Forever, said her group is “proud to have Wyoming Whiskey on board as a partner in Yellowstone’s future. Their commitment to preserving the world’s first national park will help ensure that the next generation experiences a vibrant and thriving Yellowstone.”
Wyoming Whiskey’s straight bourbon whiskey is made from 68 percent corn, 20 percent wheat, and 12 percent malted barley, with all grains grown in Wyoming and all are non-GMO. It’s bottled at 105 proof, and the water used to make Wyoming Whiskey is also sourced from a local limestone aquifer that has not seen the light of day in more than 6,000 years.
