Wild Turkey 101 is all about the power and the flavour.

In 1869, the Ripy Brothers started distilling on Wild Turkey Hill near Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. The namesake product became their number one seller and the name of the distillery was changed to reflect that success. The Ripy Family sold the distillery in 1952, and then the normal rounds of mergers and acquisition occurred. Campari Group out of Italy owns them now and they produce a wide range of Bourbons under the very popular Wild Turkey name along with several other brands.

Wild Turkey is one of the most well-known Bourbon Brands in the world, and Wild Turkey 101 is America’s #1 selling premium Bourbon. Like all Wild Turkey Bourbons, it is aged in the deepest charred barrels — #4 “alligator char.” This brings out a complexity and depth of flavour that has been winning fans for generations.  But the 101 is special. It is made from the best casks of Wild Turkey and it served up at “101 proof” (50.5% ABV) — which is how the Whiskey gets its name and the reason that the flavours are so complex and powerful. The results are exceptional and it has consistently won so many gold medals over the years that we simply cannot list them all here.

Smartass Corner: Last year Academy Award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey became the brand ambassador and art director for Wild Turkey.

"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
During the fire of 2000, more than 900,000 gallons of Whiskey caught fire and spilled, setting a local forest on fire, poisoning a local stream, and saturating local limestone deposits with flaming alcohol, causing them to explode.
