Uncompromising since 1855, Wild Turkey is the Real Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Using only natural processes, Wild Turkey products are aged in new American white oak barrels with the deepest #4 “alligator” char, giving them a rich russet color while carrying full flavors of vanilla and smooth caramel. Wild Turkey is a true American icon and has won many U.S. and International awards, including the American Tasting Award of Excellence, and most recently the Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Master Distiller and Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Famer Jimmy Russell started at Wild Turkey in 1954 where he followed in his grandfather’s and father’s footsteps in the bourbon distillery business. Jimmy spends a great deal of time traveling the world as a goodwill ambassador for Kentucky Bourbon. A fixture in the bourbon industry for over five decades, Jimmy is now a director of the Kentucky Distillers Association.
