Brown Mule Gin (ABV 43%; 86 proof) — With its mild yet distinctive juniper flavor, Brown Mule Gin is converting non-gin drinkers into gin lovers. Brown Mule Gin is barrel-rested in oak brandy barrels, imparting a light brown color and unique flavor with a hint of vanilla and a smooth, sweet finish. It is distilled with nine botanicals including Western juniper berries and Wyoming rosehips. Try it in your favorite mule recipe, a gin and brandy martini with a lime wedge, or substitute it for your favorite whiskey in any cocktail recipe.
Silver Spur Vodka (ABV 43%; 86 proof) — Cowboy Country Distilling’s premium vodka is distilled from corn and filtered through a proprietary system using carbon and pure silver. This painstaking process results in one of the smoothest, cleanest vodkas you’ll find anywhere in the world. Mix it with cranberry juice and a slice of lime, enjoy it with your favorite martini or screwdriver, or try it straight up.
Silver Spur Jalapeno & Bacon Vodka (ABV 43%; 86 proof) — This unique, bold-flavored spirit begins with Cowboy Country Distilling’s premium Silver Spur Vodka, real jalapeños and bacon. Using a proprietary process, Master Distiller Tim Trites creates the perfect balance of jalapeño and bacon together in one spirit. Our Silver Spur Jalapeño & Bacon Vodka makes the ultimate Bloody Mary or spicy Dirty Martini, or mix it with lemonade, spice up a margarita, or add to barbeque sauce and marinades.
Rooster Rum (ABV 43%; 86 proof) —This hand-crafted, barrel-aged rum is a “French style” agricultural rum. Distilled from raw Columbian cane sugar, it has notes of butterscotch, pineapple, banana, fig and dates, to name just a few of the 17 complex flavor notes one might experience. Pour it over ice with a slice of lime, try it in a Pina Colada, a Mai Tai, or in a Hot Buttered Rum.
Red Roan Raspberry Cordial (ABV 43%; 70 proof) —Fresh Wyoming raspberries distilled with other natural ingredients make Cowboy Country Distilling’s signature cordial more than memorable. The true flavor of raspberries shines in this spirit that’s not too sweet and not too tart. Mix it with lemon-lime soda and a twist of lime, sparkling wine, or flavored water, or turn a White Russian into a “Blushin’ Russian.”
Gold Spur Corn Whiskey (ABV 43%; 86 proof) — Cowboy Country Distilling’s throwback, pre Prohibition-style whiskey is distilled twice through old fashioned pot stills to showcase the earthy, nutty and grassy flavors of the natural grains. Aging in oak barrels brings out light citrus and vanilla notes. Enjoy the rich flavor neat or in any whiskey cocktail. Gold Spur Whiskey is a timeless classic. Try Gold Spur Corn Whiskey in such cocktails as an Old Fashioned, Manhattan, Harvey Wallbanger, Whiskey Sour, or a Mint Julep, or simply mix it with club soda.
Gold Spur Special Reserve Corn Whiskey (ABV 43%; 86 proof) — The official whiskey of the Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame, Gold Spur Special Reserve Corn Whiskey is a world-class artisan whiskey produced in small batches and three times distilled using old-style pot distillation methods. Made with Wyoming corn, millet and oats, Gold Spur Corn Whiskey is smooth with a distinctive cowboy kick. Enjoy Gold Spur Corn Whiskey straight or mixed in cocktails.
