Go back in Wild Turkey history – all the way back to 1855  – and you’ll learn that wholesale grocer Austin Nichols began selling wine and spirits form his store. Later, he began to buy bourbon and sell it under the name Wild Turkey.

In 1971, Nichols bought a distillery and began making Wild Turkey bourbon, too. Though the distillery no longer distributes the bourbon, it’s still made today, though mostly for experimental batches and blending in special bourbons.

The difference between Austin Nichols and Wild Turkey bourbon? Higher barrel entry proof. 

That means these Austin Nichols Wild Turkey Bourbon Barrels have even more Wild Turkey flavor soaked into the staves – ready for your barrel-aged brew.
