WYO Rodeo Whisky has been on shelves across Wyoming since late June 2017. In December 2017, it made it onto shelves across Montana and Nevada. The premium Canadian Whisky, bottled in partnership by Bighorn Spirits and the Sheridan WYO Rodeo, has now crested $10,000 in royalties to the Sheridan WYO Rodeo, according to Nick Siddle, rodeo president.
“We began our relationship with Bighorn Spirits with a handshake deal after a glass of what has become our very own WYO Rodeo Whisky,” said Siddle. “I’m proud of our progress and even more proud of how this partnership is positively impacting the Sheridan WYO Rodeo. After just one year, we’ve earned $10,000 in royalties — and we’re just getting started.”
WYO Rodeo Whisky has taken home the Silver (2nd Place) award at the prestigious Whiskies of the World competition and recently landed a distribution contract with Yellowstone National Park, through Delaware North, allowing it to introduce WYO Rodeo Whisky to consumers from around the world.
“We are grateful for the WYO Rodeo’s partnership and the support of so many customers,” said Frank Maestri, Bighorn Spirits co-founder. “We couldn’t do this without the many bars, restaurants and retailers that took a chance on WYO Rodeo Whisky. Cheers!”
