Wild Turkey Old Master’s Keep Unforgotten Bourbon / Rye Batch #1


The Wild Turkey distillery, then known as Boulevard, was built in 1935 by the Ripy Brothers in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. The Wild Turkey brand name originated around 1941 when some, shared on a hunting trip, was referred to as “some of that wild turkey whiskey.” It is distilled at bottled by the Austin Nicholls company and for many years they had sourced the whiskey from the Ripy’s, but eventually bought the distillery from them in 1972, renaming it in the process. Of almost equal importance, the purchase of the distillery included the contract of legendary master distillery, Jimmy Russell, who started working there in 1954. His name is synonymous with the brand, and his son succeeded him 2015. In 2011 a new Wild Turkey distillery was built on the same site, replacing the original Ripy plant after 76 years.

The Master’s Keep series was originally debuted in 2017, and featured the Aged 17 YearsDecades, The 1824 and Revival.

This is the first batch of the the Unforgotten rye expression. It is a marriage of 8, 9 and 13 year old rye finished for a secondary maturation in rye casks.
