In 1940 Thomas McCarthy, one of the managers of the Ripy Distillery, brought whiskey from his own company to the turkey hunt. His friends liked the whiskey so much that the following year they asked him to bring back some of the "Wild Turkey" whiskey for hunting. This is how the colloquial name became the brand name

By default, the drums are equipped with a used wooden or plastic bung. If you want a new silicone bung, you can order it under accessories (type standard - C16).
Used wooden barrels: Notches in the wood or, in certain circumstances, an uneven base, do not constitute a quality defect, but stem from the idiosyncrasies of the production method and the prior use of the barrels. The usage of the barrel will not be affected by those! The barrels are very carefully checked by us at the exit control against sensor and technical errors. We assume no liability for cracks or splits that occur during maturation. A possible and a reasonable repair is not under guarantee.
