Wyoming Whiskey Raises More Than $120K for National Park Foundtion


June 28, 2021

Wyoming Whiskey announced the brand has raised more than $120,000 through a partnership with the National Park Foundation.

To raise the funds, Wyoming Whiskey hosted a virtual auction of four one-of-a-kind bottles in the Wide Open Spaces – By Air collection, with all proceeds directly benefiting the National Park Foundation. 

The first in the brand’s annual production of this limited-edition collection was inspired by the beauty of Wyoming’s national parks. Curated by creative director Harrison Ford, the collection was available only at auction. Each bottle was accompanied by a hand-carved wooden case created by natural materials artist Jamison Sellers.

Original photography from Tuck Fauntleroy is featured on each of the four labels and was accompanied by a framed, large format print. One of the bespoke bottles, Barrel #5004, inspired by Yellowstone Lake, sold for $15,000. The auction also included several other items, such as vacation retreats and custom merchandise, all in support of the National Park Foundation.

“On behalf of all of us at Wyoming Whiskey, I thank everyone who participated in our virtual auction and am grateful to all who donated to such a great cause,” said David DeFazio, co-founder of Wyoming Whiskey. “The importance of protecting our national parks cannot be overstated.” 

Wyoming Whiskey also created a Wide Open Spaces virtual exhibit. The exhibit showcases the inspiration behind the four bottles featured in the auction, as well as background on the company’s commitment to preserving America’s wide-open spaces and partnership with the National Park Foundation. 

In conjunction with the virtual auction, Wyoming Whiskey also launched a new National Parks Limited Edition Bourbon Whiskey available in limited markets and online.  With each bottle sold, $5 will be donated to the National Park Foundation. Consumers interested in securing a bottle should look to online retailers Reserve Bar and Flaviar, and select retailers in NY, GA, CO and WY. Bottles retail for $49.99.
