Over the month of November 2017, Flight Club will be bringing you “30 Turkeys in 30 days.” Each day, we will post a review of a different Wild Turkey product. Throughout that journey, we will provide you with background information on the company, the products and the people behind the products, all of which we hope create a better understanding of what Wild Turkey brings to the world of bourbon. A table of contents for each of these posts can be found here.
In this Chapter 6, we bring you the finest Wild Turkey products that we have acquired over the past few years.
This past September, we celebrated with you National Bourbon Heritage Month. Passed by the United State Senate in 2007, this legislation reinforced Bourbon as “America’s Native Spirit” and declared September 2007 as Bourbon Heritage Month to “celebrate the history of the Commonwealth, the distilleries and bourbon.”
In conjunction with this resolution, Wild Turkey released a 15 year 100 proof bourbon – Wild Turkey American Spirit. 24,000 bottles were released worldwide, with 6,000 of these exclusive to Japan – where our bottle would originate from.
