Wild Turkey Bourbon

Pernod-Ricard

Wild Turkey Bourbon


Owner: Pernod Ricard
Country: France


Could there be any drink more American for Thanksgiving than Wild Turkey? Think again. Bourbon—America's homegrown whiskey—has been produced since 1789 and has survived the Civil War, Prohibition, and the rise of wine coolers. But Wild Turkey, made since 1869 at the Ripy family distillery on Kentucky's Wild Turkey Hill, isn't a local brand anymore. It was acquired in 1980 by France's Pernod Ricard, which has since become the world's No. 2 liquor company, with brands such as Chivas, Jameson, Glenlivet, Beefeater, Courvoisier, Kahlua, and soon Absolut.
