It was a simple idea “to create a traditional bourbon in a nontraditional place!” At the lead of helmsman Steve Nally (who spent 33 years of his career distilling for Maker’s Mark), the product is a collaboration between its partners and 97,818 square miles of Wyoming countryside. The family first arrived as ranchers back in 1890. Setting up home their estate now lays a mile from the Madison Formation, which includes a massive limestone aquifer from where they source their water. Access to this pure water resource is an important reason why the distillery took residence here. Furthermore the Big Horn Basin offers everything needed to make a great bourbon – the corn, wheat and barley is grown in nearby Kirby, Byron, Thermopolis and Riverton.
