This monster Bourbon was made to teach a cocktail who’s boss.

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.

Rare Breed Barrel Proof Bourbon was first released in 1991. Since then, there have only been 10 releases. So now you understand why it’s called “Rare Bird.” Let’s cut right to the specs. Don’t worry that there is no age statement. All the experts agree that this powerhouse Bourbon is a combination of six, eight, and twelve year old top-end product. The mash bill is 75% corn, 13% rye, and 12% malted barley. And it’s bottled at cask strength! We’ve tasted it straight up, but this monster was made to stand up to ice and a splash of water and teach it who’s boss.

Bold and powerful with oak and black pepper. Water opens up vanilla, toffee, and honeysuckle.

Served neat, it’s spicy like a a Rye. But a little water and it blooms with sweetness, orange, and tobacco.

Finish
Long, strong, and complex.
