This week's guest on Spirits of Whisk(e)y is David DeFazio, Founder of Wyoming Whiskey. Located in Kirby, a four-hour drive east of Jackson Hole, Wyoming Whiskey produces a range of outstanding whiskeys, including Double Cask—a straight bourbon finished in Pedro Ximénez sherry casks—and Outryder, a rye-forward, bottled-in-bond, straight American whiskey that's neither rye nor bourbon. Listen and learn how David, an attorney and native of upstate New York, turned a passion for whiskey into a life in whiskey. Then hear how Wyoming Whiskey's Private Stock Straight Bourbon left Chef Louise "Weezy" Leonard craving a bison burger smothered in a mild, gooey cheese, something like a Havarti, with caramelized onions to bring out the sweetness of the spirit, drunken sautéed mushrooms, a few sprigs of arugula for a peppery bite, and a nice grainy mustard.
