In 1893, bourbon from this distillery was selected from over 400 whiskeys to represent Kentucky at the World's Fair. The same fine 101 proof Wild Turkey bourbon is still made today. Visitors will tour the fermentation area and the cistern room where the barrels are filled as well as timbered warehouses to experience the sites, sounds and smells of a working distillery.
