Wild Turkey Bourbon Whiskey Info, Reviews, and Musings

Wild Turkey Release Calendar

Wild Turkey Calendar

What follows is an unofficial calendar of Wild Turkey and/or brand-relative releases as announced or filed with the TTB (U.S. Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau). Please note that TTB filings do not guarantee an expression’s actual retail release. Links to these filings can be found below, as well as company press releases (when available). Past years will remain for archival purposes as needed.

Along with new and revised releases, charts regarding Wild Turkey’s annual private barrel program are provided as well. Note: this information is compiled as received, and therefore, may be incomplete. Should you have data to correct or add, please contact me and I’ll be happy to review.

Formal inquiries regarding Wild Turkey or Campari Whiskey Baron releases should be addressed to:
