    Re: Wild Turkey Shortage?

    With all of these reports I guess I won't be getting a WT drought T shirt sent to me...

    The only WT 101 shortage I know of is on Thursday mornings that is quickly rectified by Thursday evening trip to the local store.

    In San Diego, Bev Mo is short on WT 80 but plenty of WT 101

    Re: Wild Turkey Shortage?

    Thanks for your help, everyone.

    Apparently, the Skyy Vodka PR team in San Francisco is now the Wild Turkey PR team too (both brands are owned by Gruppo Campari). They've checked around and tell me there is plenty of Wild Turkey inventory in the northern suburbs, and the specific stores that told my friend they couldn't get any (a small chain called Teddy's) will be getting a call.

    I may not be good for much, but this I can do.

    Judging by my luck recently, there may be an Old Forester shortage. The place at which I stopped today said they were temporarily out of OF. They said they only stock it for an old man who comes and gets one bottle every couple weeks.

    My first thought was, I didn't think Oscar liked Old Forester.

    Re: Wild Turkey Shortage?

    I was in Windsor, Ontario over the weekend and the duty free store on the the Canadian side of the Ambassador bridge was totally out of Wild Turkey of every type. No 8yr. 101 or Sherry Signature at all. Detroit duty free also was out of Sherry Signature. either this stuff is no longer being made or it is in severely short supply!

    Re: Wild Turkey Shortage?

    The PR folks at Skyy Spirits tell me nothing is wrong. The stores that started this thread now have Wild Turkey back in stock, for which I am claiming full credit.

    Could be just coincidence but while out gift pack hunting today I noticed fewer stores had Rare breed in stock.
