Even though it’s not a holiday we celebrate, we want to jump on the bandwagon. And why wouldn’t you? You get to indulge in turkey, and Wild Turkey Bourbon.

Its win win.

Wild Turkey are hosting a series of thanksgiving events, with the evenings designed to encourage Aussies to celebrate the all-American traditional with classic American cocktails including the Wild Turkey 101 Old Fashioned, a classic American cocktail and mix of sugar with bitters, Wild Turkey 101 (crafted by legendary Master Distiller Jimmy Russell for more than 60 years) and twist of citrus rind. The perfect way for discerning bourbon drinkers to join the thanksgiving fare!
