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 is most definitely an odd place to make rum. But as lovers of rum, we wanted to make it part of our portfolio. We reverse engineered this rum to be perfect in one of our all-time favorite cocktails: the classic daiquiri. For that, we needed a crisp and bright rum that brings complimentary flavors to the fresh lime in a daiquiri. A common theme among Backwards spirits, we again wanted this product to reflect the best of the base ingredient without being covered up by any sweeteners or flavors added after the fact.
