Wild Turkey is a Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey. Originally produced as a private whiskey served to wealthy New York businessmen during the annual turkey hunt in North Carolina.
Wild Turkey produced by Austin,Nichols Distilling Co. in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. It is aged for eight years in new charred oak barrels which are carefully rotated in the warehouse to assure that the Bourbon inside matures at the same slow, even rate. It is then bottled at 101 proof (and recently 86.8 proof).
