Coming this Fall, a new take on the original honey bourbon from Wild Turkey — American Honey Sting. Made from a combination of Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey and pure honey with the sting of the world’s hottest chili pepper. That’s right, the often used pepper in dares that so many bros regret, the Ghost Pepper. While this hybrid spice holds the Guinness World Record as the hottest chili pepper in the world — 400 times spicier than Tabasco — American Honey Sting hones together the perfect balance of heat and sweetness.
“I think people are going to get a kick out of how well the heat of the Ghost Peppers goes with the honey flavor. When you take a shot, you get the forward flavor sweetness and citrus of American Honey on your tongue first, followed by the Ghost Pepper that has a subtle heat to it.” – Wild Turkey’s Jimmy Russell, longest-tenured, active Master Distiller in the world.
Fireball look out, there’s a new liqueur in town for shooting, and its packing some heat. The limited edition Wild Turkey American Honey Sting is available starting in October and comes in 750ml and 50ml bottles.
