Bottled In Bond: Wild Turkey releases 17-year-old whiskey

The award-winning Wild Turkey Master’s Keep series introduces Bottled in Bond, a premium 17-year-old Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey.

The bottling is the second-ever Wild Turkey bourbon to carry the bottled-in-bond label, an American certification that guarantees the authenticity of the production process and ensures incomparable flavour and consistency.

To carry the bottled-in-bond label, the bourbon must be the product of one single distilling season from one distillery, aged in a U.S.–federally bonded warehouse and artfully bottled at 100 proof.

Wild Turkey’s first-ever Bottled in Bond whiskey was released in 2007 and was the oldest American whiskey entrant in the U.S. market at 15 years of age.

This inspired Wild Turkey to release a bolder flavoured bourbon, which was accomplished by tasting several different batches and landing on an older whiskey that had the distinctive merits of a deeply aged liquid. These taste markers inspired Eddie Russell, Master Distiller at Wild Turkey, as he worked on this latest Bottled in Bond release.
