Whiskey lovers are awaiting the release of the second batch of Wyoming Whiskey.

The small batch bourbon is set to be in stores Friday. Supplies are limited so some liquor stores say they may only be selling to people who've signed up for bottles or who've won store lotteries.

KCWY-TV reports that the states liquor commission is only allowing each liquor store to get up to four cases each so there's enough to go around.

The owner of the Poplar Wine & Spirits in Casper, Mike Reid, said he doesn't expect to see the whiskey sold on store shelves until late next year.

The bourbon is made in the tiny town of Kirby. The first batch was released in December and so far the distillery is only distributing in Wyoming.
