HOW WE MAKE OUR
RARE BREED RYE

As one of the few American distilleries to remain dedicated to the art of rye whiskey making, Wild Turkey Distillery’s Rare Breed Rye is the real deal, uncut and non-chill filtered. This barrel-proof, rye is bottled directly from the barrels at the 112.2 proof it reaches in those barrels. It is sister to award-winning Rare Breed Bourbon and the first permanent super-premium rye in the Wild Turkey family.

TASTE

Sweet caramel and fruit at the start that gives way to a complex flavor of wood and rye spices

AROMA

Starts sweet with caramel apple up front, followed by rich and complex layers of honey, vanilla, rye grain spice, and charred oak underneath

FINISH

Smooth and drawn-out, where lingering spice flavors mingle with dried fruit and a pleasant fading warmth

PROCESS

112.2 Barrel-proof, non-chill filtered blend of 4-, 6-, and 8-year-old Kentucky Straight Rye
