Celebrate World Whiskey Day This Weekend with Wild Turkey & The Bay Horse Tavern
It is safe to say that over here in Manchester, we are pretty fond of our Scottish & Irish whiskeys all year round. But when World Whiskey Day comes around, I urge you to step away from what you know and sample some whiskeys that do not hail from our rainy shores.

And what a better place to start than with Wild Turkey- a bourbon whiskey from the United States. Wild Turkey is a liquid with a rich history originating in The Whiskey Rebellion of the late 1790s, and the base of the first documented cocktail on record (also the World’s most popular) the Old Fashioned. Bourbon holds its own in the whiskey world and within the UK’s thriving bar scene. Whether a seasoned fan or new to the category, bourbon’s no-nonsense, unpretentious style makes it accessible to all type of drinkers. This Saturday, Wild Turkey will be taking over The Bay Horse Tavern and will be serving up a range of bourbon-based cocktails straight from the heart of Kentucky. They'll be offering the Bay Horse Old Fashioned this Saturday to tuck into, which you can't really go wrong with - it's a fucking classic. The bourbon of choice around the UK will be the iconic Wild Turkey 101- bottled at 101 proof, it’s a high-rye bourbon aged in American white oak with the deepest char for more character, giving a bold and spicy flavour. Wild Turkey will be the backbone of a selection of delicious cocktails including a classic Old Fashioned (of course) and many many more. Bourbon drinkers and virgins alike, look no further than The Bay Horse Tavern this World Whiskey Day. The Bay Horse Tavern, 35-37 Thomas St, Manchester M4 1NA 0161 669 5799 thebayhorsetavern.co.uk/
