WILD TURKEY 101 BOURBON (750 ML)
Wild Turkey 101 is the iconic standard label for Wild Turkey Bourbon. Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon ages back to after the American Civil War. The Ripy brothers were the founders of Wild Turkey Bourbon. After the American Civil War, the Ripy Brothers returned to Kentucky and opened a distillery in Lawrenceburg. The distillery operated for nearly fifty years until American Prohibition hit the United States. After the Prohibition, the Ripy Brothers Distillery was reopened and an executive at the distillery named Thomas McCarthy took some samples of maturing whiskey with him and a group of friends on a turkey hunt. The next year, his friends asked him to bring more of the “wild turkey whiskey” on their next hunt, and soon after the whiskey got its new name. Under the watchful eye of Master Distiller Jimmy Russell for nearly 55 years, Wild Turkey has long been a stalwart of the bourbon industry known for its rebellious image and in-your-face bourbon flavor. This 50.5% alcohol whiskey is not age stated, though usually, their new standard practice is to mingle barrels of 6, 7, and 8-year bourbon.
