A vintage bottle of Wild Turkey’s iconic 8 Years Old 101 Proof bourbon, bottled in 1992. The bottle comes in the original, pretty cardboard box. The box states that this iconic whiskey was supervised by Jimmy Russell, who was working as the Distillery’s Master for 35 years at that time. His son Eddie took over and at the time of writing, 2021, they are both still working there. Wowchie! The Wild Turkey brand was created after an Austin Nichols executive, Thomas McCarthy, brought some bourbon from the warehouse with him on a wild turkey hunting trip in 1940. It was so popular among his friends that they kept asking him for ‘that wild turkey bourbon’. The first Wild Turkey 101 was introduced less than two years later, in 1942.
