A hard-to-find, softer version of classic Wild Turkey Bourbon made for the Japanese market.
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. All under the watchful eyes and experienced hands of the only father-son master distiller team in the business — Jimmy and Eddie Russell.
Have you ever been to Japan? It’s no secret that Japan loves Whiskey — and who can blame them. Wild Turkey 13 Year Old Distiller's Reserve Bourbon Whiskey is a unique version of classic Wild Turkey that was tailored to the Japanese market, and normally that’s the only place you can get it.
This is the signature Wild Turkey Bourbon aged for thirteen years in — as they say — the legendary Rickhouse B. With the extra aging and at 45.5% ABV you will find the flavor profile a bit softer than the core offering.
