Rye Whiskey

Initially created as an experiment, we liked this whiskey’s sharp, spicy personality and dry-as-a-summer-on-the-Plains palate so much that we decided to make more—but once it’s gone, it’s gone.

Wyoming's first white whiskey! Every batch we make is different. Every barrel we fill has its own story to tell.

Our Story

Pine Bluffs Distilling was born in a garage. Home-brewer Chad Brown was talking malt with his cousin Gene Purdy, a farmer. Wyoming had a burgeoning craft beer and spirits scene, but the cost of shipping malt was high. They asked, What if Wyoming spirits could be made with grain straight from local farms? Together and with their Aunt, Kathy Brown, they answered that question by founding the Wyoming Malting Company and Pine Bluffs Distilling. The mission: distill and distribute premium local spirits so everyone—in Wyoming and beyond—can taste the farm-to-distillery difference.

The Farm-to-Distillery Process

You've never smelled fresh until you've been to a farm.



Fresh, local grains create exceptional spirits. All farms we work with are less than 25 miles away, and most grain arrives the same day it was harvested.


Premium quality and taste don’t come from malt shipped a thousand miles. With an on-site malt house, we can ensure our spirits are free from accidental flavors.


We’re Wyoming-proud and America-proud. Our distiller, Erica Unruh, oversees our process on hand-built, American-made equipment.


Our minimal-waste philosophy means all our spirits are made ethically and responsibly. Spent grains return to the farm to feed local livestock.


Our high-quality spirits are locally produced and regionally distributed—allowing more people to taste the farm-to-distillery difference.
