Wild Turkey is different for good reason, and it all comes down to premium ingredients, select barrels, and a lot of patience.
Your whiskey is only as good as your ingredients. That’s why our water comes from the Kentucky River and is naturally filtered through limestone, removing iron and other impurities. Plus we’re still using our original yeast strain – proprietary to Wild Turkey – which has informed our bourbon’s signature flavour for over 60 years. And you’ll never find a genetically modified grain in our bourbon. Because non-GMO, natural, and authentic is just Jimmy Russell’s way.
We never pour a drop of Wild Turkey until it’s aged at least five years – often six or eight or more. Of course, we only have to age it two years to call it a straight bourbon, but we’re not big fans of doing the minimum. Even our tin-clad, wooden rickhouses have stood the test of time; they allow maximum interaction between wood and bourbon, and they’ve been doing it since the 1890s. When we put “Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey” on our label, it’s because our bourbon earned it.
Wild Turkey Straight Rye Whiskey is an 81 proof (40.5% alcohol) ode to America’s first distilled spirit: rye whiskey. When making Wild Turkey Rye, we use a deeper, “alligator” char for extra flavour. Big, broad vanilla and spice notes burst through without changing the bold rye taste. Wild Turkey Rye stands up to any mixer and shines through in cocktails.
