Wyoming Whiskey released its extremely limited edition 1872 9-year-old straight bourbon whiskey. Only 150 bottles will be sold in select US markets, including: Wyoming, California, Colorado, New York and Georgia.
The name 1872 pays homage to March 1, 1872 when President Ulysses S. Grant signed the Yellowstone National Park Protection Act into law, which has protected one of the most unique natural environments on earth for the last 150 years.
The label on the front of each bottle features an iconic photograph by William Henry Jackson. Jackson’s photos brought the wild wonders of Yellowstone to life, and impressed the need to protect and preserve the area for future generations.
Each of the 150 bottles will also come with a custom leather carrying case, and all sales proceeds will be donated to Yellowstone Forever, up to a maximum donation of $150,000 based on distributor depletions, to support their ongoing effort to give back to Wyoming’s wild spaces, and namely Yellowstone in this commemorative anniversary year.
“1872 is truly a collector’s edition. We are proud to honor the heritage of the place we call home and to help celebrate and preserve one of the most iconic and majestic outdoor spaces in our nation’s history,” said David DeFazio, Co-Founder of Wyoming Whiskey.
