It was first savoured as a specially selected barrel-aged bourbon by a group of hunters seeking the remarkable wild turkey bird, a native of North America. Today it is distilled according to old-time Kentucky traditions, and matured in new charred white oak barrels until it becomes the legendary smooth bourbon whiskey known as Wild Turkey.
For more than 60 years, legendary Master Distiller Jimmy Russell has been crafting Wild Turkey 101 the right way. With a high rye content, this iconic bourbon is perfectly aged for up to six to eight years in American oak barrels with the deepest char for more character.
We bottle 101 at a higher proof and only when it reaches its full complex flavor of caramel, vanilla, toffee and spice. As Jimmy says, "Like the Kentucky River, Wild Turkey 101 is mighty, bold, and it takes its own sweet time."
