Wyoming Rodeo Star Dips Into Whiskey Business
The name Brody Cress is synonymous with the tradition of Wyoming rodeo. His rodeo background is impressive, as the reigning 2021 Wrangler NFR champ standing in second place for the all-time NFR average titles in saddle bronc riding. As of today, he stands in second place for saddle bronc riding in 2022. Talk about impressive. And now, it looks like Cress is stepping into a new arena - the whiskey distilling trade.
Pine Bluffs Distilling, one of Wyoming's premier craft whiskey distilleries, has announced a collaboration with Brody Cress on their Facebook page. The special edition whiskey was hand-picked by Cress and is called the Bucking Brody Cress.
A Glance at the Bucking Brody Cress Whiskey
The Bucking Brody Cress Whiskey bottle looks fantastic. It features a bucking bronc on the bottle that perfectly depicts the spirit of Saddle Bronc Riding. The distillery describes the rye whiskey as "strong, smooth and complex...just like saddle bronc riding." It sounds delicious.
Cress choosing to work with Pine Bluffs distilling makes perfect sense. The distillery is as Wyoming as it gets, using local grains while staying community-centric. Pine Bluff's Distilling prides itself on "grain to glass" distilling - they put as much work into their whiskey as Brody does into his riding.
