Whiskies of the World Expo, one of the largest and most popular whisky tasting events in the US, has announced the results of its 2017 Whiskies of the World Awards competition. All  spirits were judged on a 100-point basis, concentrating on appearance, aromatics, flavor, mouthfeel and finish. Esteemed industry experts awarded WYO Rodeo Whisky the coveted 2017 Whiskies of the World Awards Silver Medal. In its fourth year, the whisky awards are supported by Whiskies of the World’s London-based parent company, International Wine & Spirit Competition.

The Maestri family, who founded Big Horn Spirits in Big Horn, Wyoming, joined forces with the Sheridan WYO Rodeo to release the 12-year-old Ultra-Premium Canadian WYO Rodeo Whisky in June of 2017. Royalties support local businesses and ongoing economic development in Sheridan. WYO Rodeo Whisky is available at bars and liquor stores throughout Wyoming and beyond.
