This is one bold and tasty rye.

A lot has happened since the Ripy Brothers opened up a distillery on the slopes of a hill in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, in 1891. For once, it was renamed Wild Turkey after the Prohibition when one of the executives took it on a wild hunting trip and his friends couldn’t shut up about that "delicious Wild Turkey Bourbon". Then, they’ve had some changing of hands as is customary, including the Pernod Ricard acquisition in 1980, and they’re now proudly owned by the Campari Group since 2009. And let’s not forget their current greatest asset – the legendary father-son Master Distiller duo, the literal living legends Jimmy Russel and Eddie Russell – if you put them together, you get more than 100 years’ worth of precious Bourbon-making experience. Now, let’s talk about that Bourbon.

Wild Turkey aficionados (And there’s a considerable number of them out there.) will be familiar with the duo’s higher-rye recipes and lower barrel entry proofs, producing bold and spicy flavors. Using only the best of ingredients, including 100% American grown non-GMO grains and limestone filtered water from the Kentucky River, Wild Turkey Straight Rye is an 81 proof tribute to rye Whiskey – the first distilled Spirit in America. Made with a mash bill of 52% rye, 36% corn, and 12% malted barley, it was aged in "alligator" char oak for that extra flavor kick. The kick in question: big vanilla and spice notes plus the bold rye taste. While it’s great for sipping on its own, it really does an amazing job in cocktails like the Manhattan.
