In response to the devastating floods impacting Yellowstone National Park and surrounding areas, Lebanon, Kentucky-based Limestone Branch Distillery – makers of Yellowstone Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey – has donated $25,000 each to the National Park Service (NPS) and to the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) for long-term support of flood-relief efforts.

Additionally, Limestone Branch distillery has agreed to match up to $50,000 in donations made in conjunction with a fundraising event benefiting the Southwest Montana Flood Relief Fund – a joint effort between the Park County Community Foundation (PCCF) and Greater Gallatin United Way – and the Red Lodge Area Community Foundation. The event, hosted by National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA), will be held on June 28 at the Rialto in Bozeman, Montana.

“We were saddened to learn of the devastation caused by flooding at and around Yellowstone National Park. Our Yellowstone Bourbon brand shares a long, storied history with the park, and our master distiller Stephen Beam has been an avid supporter of – and visitor to – our country’s national parks for many years,” said Limestone Branch Distillery Brand Manager Caitlin Palmieri Jackson.

“We are prepared to match up to $50,000 in donations to support the immediate recovery effort made at the fundraiser event hosted by NPCA in Bozeman, Montana, and we already have donated $25,000 each to the National Park Service and to NPCA in response to this tragedy.”

Yellowstone Bourbon also has set up a website ( to provide additional information about fundraising efforts as well as links to vetted support organizations, where consumers can learn more about donating and other ways to help.

Limestone Branch Distillery’s recent donations and fundraising efforts in response to the flooding at Yellowstone National Park are in addition to its support of the NPCA over the past several years. Earlier this year, the distillery donated $30,000 to NPCA through proceeds from sales of its Yellowstone Select whiskey.
