Cowboys and whisky tie together like a lasso and a steer, so the newly announced partnership between Bighorn Spirits and the Sheridan WYO Rodeo, called WYO Rodeo Whisky, is a natural one. The premium Canadian whisky is aged for 12 years in oak barrels, ensuring a smooth drink after even the roughest ride on a bucking bronco.

WYO Rodeo Whisky might take on the appearance of moonshine and country simplicity, but in reality the spirit is a luxury offering. The whisky comes from California barrels, and it's designed specifically for sipping and cocktails (as opposed to throwing back shots.) As such, it will only be available through the Wyoming Liquor commission beginning in June of this year, as well as in tasting sessions at the Sheridan WYO Rodeo itself.
