Wild Turkey Bourbon was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky and has over 150 years of spirits heritage. However, it wasn’t until the 1940s that Wild Turkey inherited its iconic name after a distillery executive brought a private supply of 101 proof bourbon along with him for a wild turkey hunting trip with friends.
2014 marks Wild Turkey Bourbon’s Master Distiller, Jimmy Russell’s 60th anniversary with the brand, making him the longest active tenured Master Distiller in the world. Wild Turkey Bourbon is celebrating this milestone with the limited release of the ‘Wild Turkey Diamond Anniversary’ a unique blend of 13 – 16 year old bourbons, presented in a hand crafted box.
