Wyoming Whiskey’s Single Barrel Bourbon is available once again since the limited release last appeared in November 2020. Per the brand, Single Barrel represents the top 1% of bourbon barrels sampled each year by Wyoming Whiskey. 

Single Barrel is a wheated bourbon and is a rich, medium to full-bodied spirit defined by its western terroir.

“Once in a hundred barrels, or so, something very special presents itself. These barrels are selected for their exceptional aromatic profiles, complex flavor, maturity, and overall balance.”

Single Barrel may be found at local retailers in twelve U.S. markets, including: Wyoming, Illinois, California, Colorado, New York, Georgia, Arizona, New Mexico, Maine, Idaho, Florida and South Carolina. It can also be purchased nationally through WyomingWhiskey.com or other online retailers, including Reserve Bar, Flaviar and Caskers.

Wyoming Whiskey Single Barrel specifications: 48% ABV, MSRP $99, aged for a minimum of 5 years.


Crafted from grains grown in the Bighorn Basin, Single Barrel’s terroir reflects what the West is made of: intense elements and severe temperatures. Each barrel of Single Barrel experiences extreme temperature variations common in the high basin between the Absaroka and Bighorn Mountains as it matures. Temperatures reach 135° at the height of the warehouse during the summer and plummet to 5° degrees in the depths of Winter. In the summertime, warehouse temperatures can swing 20 – 30 degrees and facilitate greater whiskey and wood interaction. 

Each hand-selected barrel is bottled at 96 proof to maintain the character which defines it. Aged for a minimum of five years in char #4 oak barrels, no two barrels are alike in flavor. Chosen from six rickhouses for its singular character and taste, each barrel yields approximately 220 bottles that capture this unique bourbon and moment in time, both of which will never happen again.
