Wyoming Whiskey has announced the release of its limited-edition National Parks No. 2 straight bourbon whiskey, in tandem with the brand’s continuing partnership with Yellowstone Forever, the official nonprofit partner of Yellowstone National Park.
The collaboration began in celebration of Yellowstone National Park’s 150th anniversary. Wyoming Whiskey National Parks No. 2 bottle is the second release in an annual National Park series which debuted in April 2021. It is now available in Yellowstone National Park and throughout Wyoming. National Parks No. 2 is also available in select U.S. markets and online from ReserveBar, Flaviar and Caskers.
The inaugural release of Wyoming Whiskey’s National Parks series contributed more than $120,000 to the National Park Foundation in 2021, the company says. Wyoming Whiskey has committed to donating $150,000 to Yellowstone Forever in the park’s 150th year.
For every bottle sold of Wyoming Whiskey National Parks No. 2 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,” says 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.”
Wyoming Whiskey National Parks No. 2 is a straight bourbon whiskey with a mash bill of 68% corn, 20% wheat and 12% malted barley. It is bottled at 105 proof. All grains are grown in Wyoming, and are non-GMO. Water used to produce Wyoming Whiskey is sourced from a local limestone aquifer.
The result is a whiskey with a nose of sandalwood, cane sugar, orange cream, peach and lemon peel, the company reports. On the palate is marzipan buttercream, carrot cake, browned spices, hints of toffee and salted caramel. The finish brings zesty orange/lemon, lingering oak, black pepper and leather.
The suggested retail price of Wyoming Whiskey National Parks No. 2 is $69.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
This fall, Wyoming Whiskey will also launch a limited-release single barrel to continue the celebration. This whiskey will roll out in a small run of only 180 bottles.
