Discover More About Our Products

Wild Turkey 101 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is the flagship product of Wild Turkey, an American bourbon whisky producer founded in 1855, in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. Since 2009, it has been fully owned by the Campari Group.

The production process starts with distillates of wheat, rye and malt and pure water from the Kentucky River. The quality control of the raw materials is repeated four times before the production phase to ensure quality. For the refinement of its products, Wild Turkey relies on magnificent white American oak barrels, where the bourbon has the opportunity to age for a period between 5 and 12 years.

Wild Turkey 101 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a bourbon whiskey bottled at 101 proof. Despite its high alcohol content, it has a very sweet and rich aroma. It is a very successful blend of various bourbons aged 6, 7 and 8 years. It pervades the nose with spicy notes of pepper in particular, while the taste transmits fantastically concentrated nuances of spicy cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. The finish is slightly spicy and long. It is certainly a unique bourbon, which is striking for its decidedly spicy taste and the contrasting caramel aftertaste that creates the note of sweetness.

To be called "Bourbon Whiskey" or "Kentucky Whiskey" the distillate must be aged in American oak barrels for at least two years and must remain in Kentucky. It has a high rye content and its ageing process gives a rich flavour, power and a profound character. Wild Turkey is one of the best-selling premium bourbons in the United States.

Wild Turkey 101

4 /5

- Wild Turkey 101 is a 101 proof bourbon that is a marriage of primarily 6, 7, and 8 year old bourbons.
- At first taste, 101 is rich with vanilla and caramel, with notes of honey, brown sugar, and a hint of tobacco. Its high proof contributes to its bolder flavour.
- Wild Turkey 101 is the benchmark in bourbon, best enjoyed neat or on the rocks.
- It's also excellent in more sophisticated cocktails.
