We are excited to announce that Trans Canada Trail has partnered with Yellowstone Bourbon, a brand with a deep history of supporting conservation and protecting natural spaces.  

To kick off the partnership, Yellowstone Bourbon will support Trans Canada Trail’s mission to build, maintain and steward Canada’s 28,000-kilometre network of urban and rural trails in the form of a CAD 40,000 donation.  

“We’re so thankful for Yellowstone Bourbon’s support of the Trans Canada Trail,” said Meghan Reddick, Interim CEO at Trans Canada Trail. “Our work has always prioritized conservation and preservation along Canada’s national trail network, and Yellowstone’s environmental commitments in both Canada and the United States align with that mission so well.” 

Named after Yellowstone National Park, the first national park in the United States, Yellowstone Bourbon has long been a steadfast supporter of conservation efforts worldwide. Preserving nature is central to the brand’s core values, and they have become one of the largest sponsors of the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA), donating nearly CAD 340,000 in 2023 alone. 

“Yellowstone Bourbon has a long history of environmental protection and conservation with its 150-year-old ties to Yellowstone National Park, and we’re proud to make the same commitment on a national scale in Canada with our partners at Trans Canada Trail,” said Yellowstone Bourbon Brand Manager Kelly Panzitta. “Together, we want to connect people with parks and nature across Canada and inspire them to enjoy the vast trail system by doing the activities they love.”   

Since 2018, Yellowstone Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, of Limestone Branch Distillery in Lebanon, Kentucky, has donated more than CAD 1 million to NPCA to protect and preserve National Parks in The United States. In 2023, NPCA named Yellowstone Bourbon recipient of the National Park Defender award which recognizes partners who show exceptional dedication to national park protection and works to educate their customers about the importance of taking action to protect parks. 

“We’re proud of the heritage we share with America’s first national park and are excited to put our values of preserving parks in action with Canadians across the country,” said Panzitta.
