"So, Mr. President, this Thanksgiving, please. Give us the bird," Mr. Russell adds.
"In our humble opinion, there is no better place for this year's presidentially-pardoned bird to live out its golden years than the Wild Turkey Distillery grounds in central Kentucky," says Jimmy Russell, master distiller. "There really is no bird more undeniably American than the turkey. After all, it was the great Benjamin Franklin who called for it to be named our national bird."
