Whiskey and the West just go together don’t they?
Visions of cowboys driving cattle across Wyoming and sipping on bourbon whiskey at sunset come to mind.
Brush Creek Distillery is bringing that vision to life. They started laying down barrels in 2019. Brush Creek Distillery is located at Brush Creek . Brush Creek Ranch is a working cattle ranch in the North Platte River Valley of south-central Wyoming, originally settled in 1884. Today it encompasses over 30,000 acres of rolling western wonder surrounded by breathtaking views of the Sierra Madre Mountains & Medicine Bow National Forest.
So their own whiskey can have time to mature over the next several years, they have sourced whiskey from across three states and blended those barrels into something delicious. They like to call it straight bourbon whiskeys which is fitting.
