About Wild Turkey Rare Breed Barrel Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Wild Turkey Rare Breed Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is made from a mash of approximately 75% corn, 13% rye and 12% malted barley, all of which are non-genetically modified. Once the grains have been harvested, they are milled and mashed with limestone-rich water drawn from the Kentucky River before being fermented and twice distilled.

After the casks have matured under the intense Kentucky sun, Jimmy Russell — Wild Turkey's master distiller — marries together a unique blend of bourbon that has matured for a minimum of six, eight and twelve years. Once the bourbons have been married together, they are bottled at cask strength.

Wild Turkey Rare Breed Kentucky Straight Bourbon has a deep, auburn color, with an aroma of orange zest, mint and sweet tobacco. The aroma gives way to notes of leather, figs and dates on the palate, which are well-balanced by touches of roasted nuts, nutmeg, vanilla and honeyed oak. The finish, which is long and robust, has a sweet touch of caramel and creamy vanilla. The bourbon earned a score of 93 points from the Beverage Tasting Institute in 2013, and earned the Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2013.

"It's a good combination of deep bourbon whiskeys with very spicy flavors," says Harlen Wheatley, master distiller at rival Buffalo Trace, of Wild Turkey Rare Breed. "It is a strong drink that goes well with anything, which is the way I like bourbon to be."

About Wild Turkey

Following the end of the American Civil War, the Ripy Brothers returned to their native state of Kentucky and, together, opened a distillery on the slopes of a hill in Lawrenceburg. The distillery operated continuously for nearly fifty years until the 18th Amendment, which prohibited the sale of alcohol in the United States, was ratified. Following the end of Prohibition, the Ripy Brothers Distillery was reopened, and a distillery executive named Thomas McCarthy took samples of maturing whiskey from the distillery on a turkey hunt with a group of friends. The following year, his friends asked him to bring "some of that wild turkey whiskey" on their next hunt, giving birth to the distillery's new name.

Today, Wild Turkey Distillery is stewarded by Master Distiller Jimmy Russell and his son Eddie Russell (together, the pair have over 90 years of experience producing bourbon). "I was born and raised in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky," says Jimmy, "which was a small community when I was growing up, but there were four bourbon distilleries here, and you had families working all the distilleries. You wanted to get in the business. My grandfather and my father, me, and now my son, we've all been in the business."
