Buckle up your seatbelt folks, you are in for a ride! Traveling back to 1968 when this beauty was put in a bottle.  The Wild Turkey Distillery was then know as Boulevard and was built by the Ripy Brothers in 1935 in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. The name “Wild Turkey” originated around 1941 on a hunting trip with Austin Nichols, where it is said that he brought along a few samples from the warehouse. As McCarthy’s friends were busy shooting wild turkeys, they kept on asking for a bit more of that bourbon they had fallen so in love with. Although we’d like to say that no turkeys were harmed in the making of this bourbon, that wouldn’t quite be true. Until 1972, they continued to source whiskey from Ripy’s before buying the distillery and renaming it in. The most important transaction in purchasing the new distillery was a young man named Jimmy Russell who began in 1954. Now here we are today, you can still find Jimmy hanging out in the gift shop most days. Though you can’t find any barrels lying around with this old juice. Your partner will forgive you on this purchase, trust us. Just look at the box!
