Premium Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey has been distilled on Wild Turkey Hill for generations. Perched 275 feet above the Kentucky River, the Wild Turkey Distillery’s breathtaking location makes it an exciting tour stop. Legendary father and son Master Distillers Jimmy and Eddie Russell watch over Wild Turkey’s traditional distilling methods with a careful eye at every turn.
While following the production process from grain delivery to bottling, visitors will see the unique 40-foot high column still, watch new bourbon being poured into hand-crafted oak barrels, and stroll through Wild Turkey’s timber warehouses. Relax and enjoy a tasting of Wild Turkey and Russell’s Reserve award-winning whiskies inside the new state-of-the-art Visitor Center, an architectural feat in this small pocket of Bourbon country recently dubbed “best in American architecture” by Architect Magazine.
