Wyoming Whiskey introduces two new whiskey collections on April 20th. And Harrison Ford is there.
Wyoming Whiskey has partnered with the National Park Foundation to host a live virtual auction of four whiskey bottles in special edition. The money goes to the NPF to preserve the American national parks – just in time for National Park Week (April 17-25).
The Wide Open Spaces By Air Collection will be auctioned during a virtual live event. In honor of Wyoming’s expansive land, the funds raised will benefit our nation’s public lands.
Regardless of the auction, the Wyoming Whiskey National Parks limited edition label is available to all selected retailers (more on that later).

Four “bespoke” bottles, each inspired by a different popular outdoor area in Wyoming – Black sand pool, Hayden Valley, Grand Tetons, and Yellowstone Lake – will be part of the auction, will take place Tuesday, April 20 at 8:00 p.m. EST / 5:00 p.m. PST.
And get that – Harrison Ford Headed the art direction for the collection in collaboration with the photographer Tuck Fauntleroy and artist Jamison Sellers.
“I’ve been fortunate to have a home in Wyoming for about 35 years. I am proud to work with Wyoming Whiskey, my neighbors and friends, to support the National Park Foundation, ”said Ford.
“I am very proud of what Wyoming Whiskey is doing to this event as it is important to protect, restore and preserve these national treasures for future generations.”

Each of these special edition bottles comes in a wooden box decorated with Wyoming topography and hand-carved by Sellers. Fauntleroy touched the labels and took aerial photos in his abstract style.
