Wild Turkey Distillery
For more than 75 years, Wild Turkey has been an established name in Kentucky bourbon. Grown by Hall of Fame Master Distiller Jimmy Russell, the brand continues his craftsmanship. Now with celebrity Matthew McConaughey as spokesperson and brand ambassador, Wild Turkey withstands the test of time making quality whiskey for fans new and old.
While Russell’s son Eddie is in charge now, you still may find Jimmy signing bottles in the gift shop or riding his scooter around the Wild Turkey campus.
