KIRBY, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming's first legal distillery says its first batch of bourbon whiskey will be ready to drink in December. But Wyoming Whiskey says people will only be able to buy bottles in Wyoming at first because of the limited supply.
The company began distilling whiskey in 2009 in the tiny town of Kirby under the guidance of a former master distiller at Maker's Mark. CEO Brad Mead told the Northern Wyoming Daily News that 200 of the 3,000 barrels now being distilled will be released beginning on Dec. 1. The company plans to expand sales to the rest of the country in the fall of 2013.
