This year Wild Turkey, the authentic American bourbon, is taking over Thanksgiving in the UK and giving back the only way it knows how – bourbon! To celebrate, cocktail-lovers will be offered a ‘token of thanks’ in the form of a complimentary Old Fashioned cocktail – with a twist.

Wild Turkey is “giving thanks” to the everyday heroes who always pick up the bar tab – celebrating the generosity of these people who always put their mates first and treating them to a bourbon on the house. To get involved, all bar-goers need to do is grab that friend who owes them a drink and introduce them to a bartender at a participating venue, where they can then enjoy their 2-for-1 cocktail offer – one paid for by their mate, and the other on the house, courtesy of Wild Turkey.

For this, the brand has joined forces with 20 bars across the UK and challenged the finest bartenders to come up with a series of limited-edition Old Fashioned recipes, inspired by the people they want to give thanks to – from their legendary local barber, to the person they got their first tattoo with!  Available from 25th November – 1st December, these cocktails are sure to boast both unexpected flavour pairings and eye-catching garnishes to tickle the taste buds.

Thanksgiving is a holiday traditionally associated the U.S., but with over 200,000 Americans living in the UK and a 147%increase in Thanksgiving related searches on Google over the past five years, there is more appetite to celebrate the occasion here in the UK.


Joseph St Clair Ford, Brand Ambassador at Wild Turkey UK, says We’ve all got that friend who owes us a drink or two, so make the most of it this November and grab your free Wild Turkey Old Fashioned at a bar near you!”
