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.



There’s nothing subtle or mild about this gin, it’s truly worthy of the Strongman name. In fact, the flavor is at its complete maximum limit; the reason you will see this gin louche just a bit when cold water is added. The flavor is reminiscent of being in the middle of the woods, surrounded by sappy, resiny pine trees.
