Wild Turkey 101 750ml
Wild Turkey is a Kentucky Straight Bourbon whiskey made by the Austin Nichols Distilling Company. The name Wild Turkey was made up after a 1940’s wild turkey hunting trip by distillery executive Thomas McCarthy during which he shared some warehouse samples with his fellow-hunters. The year thereafter his friends asked for “some of that wild turkey whiskey”, and a brand was born.
Wild Turkey distiller Jimmy Russell has been making bourbon for 60 years. In Wild Turkey 101, 101 refers to 101 Proof, or 50.5% alcohol by volume. As you sip it, the spirit is medium-bodied, with a finish that is smooth and warming.
