Happy Thanksgiving with Wild Turkey

Wild Turkey Rare Breed Thanksgiving is no longer just a celebration for our friends across the pond. Never ones to pass on a reason to feast with our loved ones, and with one in six Brits now marking the occasion, Wild Turkey is here to help navigate one of the tastiest occasions of the year. So, make like the Americans do this November 24th and celebrate with an authentic Wild Turkey whiskey from the distillery’s home in Lawrenceberg, Kentucky.

Following its launch in October, Wild Turkey® Rare Breed® is perfect for drinkers who like a bourbon unadulterated and with big bold flavours. This exceptionally rich full-bodied bourbon has sweet notes, spicy characteristics and a long, dried fruit finish, ideal for drinking neat or over a couple of ice cubes (56.4% ABV, £47.95 RRP, 700ml).

Wild Turkey Kentucky Straight

Those who enjoy their bourbon with just a hint of spice should look no further than Wild Turkey® Kentucky Straight®. Originally crafted as “Wild Turkey 81”, this multi-award winning whiskey has notes of sweet vanilla and pear, with a full and rich finish perfect for enjoying straight or with a mixer (40.5% ABV, £23 RRP, 700ml).

Wild Turkey Kentucky Straight Rye

Wild Turkey® Kentucky Straight Rye® has all of your Thanksgiving party needs covered. Less sweet than a bourbon, the big, broad vanilla and spice notes burst through without changing the bold rye taste. Wild Turkey Rye stands up to any mixer and shines through in cocktails (40.5% ABV, £29 RRP, 700ml).
