Wild Turkey ’81’ Bourbon Whiskey

RM250.00

SKU:
AWS590102

Introduced in 2011, Wild Turkey 81 Proof was created by Associate Master Distiller Eddie Russell. For a spicy kick, Eddie uses the Wild Turkey famous high-rye mash bill. He then ages the whiskey for 6-8 years, longer than any other whiskey in this ‘weight class’, in hand-selected American oak barrels with the famous #4 “alligator char” to get the most flavor from each barrel. Eddie designed 81 to be a mellower counterpart to the 101 – and while it stands tall on its own, it really shines in a mixed drink like a Manhattan or an Old Fashioned. We like to call it the perfect mixin’ whiskey.

About The Brand

Since its introduction, Wild Turkey has maintained a distinctive distillation and ageing process that gives it a smooth taste and a lingering flavor. Wild Turkey uses a differentiated process whereby the bourbon is distilled at a low proof to seal in its flavors. Very little water is added to Wild Turkey, resulting in a full-flavored authentic bourbon taste similar to what one would get straight out of the barrel. Wild Turkey is a genuine drink with a sought after “burn” that comes from its high proof, an attribute fundamental to the brand and critical in maintaining its authentic bourbon characteristics.

Wild Turkey has over 150 years of spirits heritage. Austin Nichols began operations in 1855 as a wholesale grocer specializing in the sale of teas, coffees and spirits. In 1869, the Ripy family founded a distillery on what is now known as Wild Turkey Hill in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky; Austin Nichols purchased the distillery in 1971. Wild Turkey got its name in the 1940s after a distillery executive brought a private supply of 101 proof bourbon along with him for a wild turkey hunting trip with friends. They liked it so much that the next year they asked him to bring along some of that same “Wild Turkey” bourbon. He honored his friends’ good taste by turning their nickname into a legendary brand.
