Oh give us a home, where the buffalo roam, and the bourbon is flowing all daaaaay…. That’s right folks, Pops and Steve Coomes were heard singing that very tune as they walked the grounds at Wyoming Whiskey. A long-time desire for Bourbon & Banter, we finally had the opportunity to secure a single barrel of Wyoming Whiskey, and after that selection, Pops and Steve sat down with co-founder David DeFazio. Be sure to join our DrinkCurious community for your opportunity to secure a bottle of this fantastic barrel!
If you’ve ever wondered how catholic guilt can lead to bourbon, this is the interview for you. Wyoming Whiskey is one of our favorite craft distillers, and DeFazio holds nothing back, admitting that what they first put in a bottle ten years ago was less than stellar. That’s a rarity for any whiskey maker to admit and part of why we’re such fans.
Big things are ahead for Wyoming Whiskey, and we’ve got the inside scoop on everything coming down the line.
