Family owned and operated, Backwards Distilling Company was founded in 2014 in Mills, Wyoming by the Pollock Family. Since then, we have expanded our distillery and opened our downtown Casper Tasting Room.



Wyoming has a rich history of moonshining. Our sparsely populated spaces and propensity for outlaw antics made our state an ideal place to produce illicit alcohol. While we of course are doing it legally, we are taking cues from the history that surrounds us to inform our production methods.

Cinnamon is so versatile! But, finding a true cinnamon flavor in a spirit is difficult. There’s hot cinnamon and candy cinnamon, but the one used in our Cinnamon Moonshine is a true baking cinnamon. You can put it with just about anything to add a lovely complementary flavor to your drink.
