A real deal, hand-selected, and perfectly aged Bourbon classic from day one.

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.

Since Campari has invested heavily in the brand and put the Russells in charge they have have done some amazing things. Which brings us to this special edition: Wild Turkey Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey. It’s absolutely singe-barrel stuff. That means that there will be subtle differences from batch to batch… It’s made from their core mash bill of 75% corn, 13% rye, and 12% malted barley aged eight to ten years in new white oak casks with a dark, #4 “alligator char” — it’s ready when it’s ready and not a moment before. It’s a double-gold medal winner and rated 96-100 points by Wine Enthusiast.

Smartass corner:
Technically, a distillery can char their barrels as dark as they wish — and a few experimental releases have done so. But the vast majority of distilleries char barrels with an open flame for less than a minute to a range of #1 to #4 char level.

Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
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.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
