"One of the pioneers of small batch bourbon, Rare Breed is pure barrel proof whiskey, bold spirit with tones of warm butter scotch and vanilla, and hints of fruit and spices."

Product Details

Wild Turkey Rare Breed bourbon is a single-barrel edition, meaning it is bottled without blending down with water. This means it comes in at a very high proof of 116.8 (as opposed to a more typical 80 to 90 though Wild Turkey aficionados will be familiar with their 101 version). The Rare Breed bourbon is a nod to the Rare Breed Society, which is a fan group of all things bourbon organized by Austin Nichols and represents bourbon in its purest form. The true, bold spirit of Wild Turkey has been captured in this authentic barrel proof whiskey, creating one of the finest bourbons in the world. Uncut with water, Rare Breed is an uncompromised Kentucky bourbon with tones of sweet tobacco and hints of orange and mint, making it a remarkably smooth whiskey legend.

About the Producer

Wild Turkey Bourbon is produced near Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, by the Austin Nichols division of Campari Group. It was founded in 1869 by the Ripy brothers, who built a distillery in Tyrone, Kentucky, consolidated the facility by 1905, and resumed distillation after Prohibition. The Ripys were bought out in 1952 by the Gould Brothers, the distillery was bought by Pernod Ricard in 1980, and in 2009 the Campari Group acquired the brand. The distillery is most famous for the brand Wild Turkey, which launched around 1941.
