Not even rain clouds looming overhead could dampen the enthusiasm of the crowd gathered Tuesday morning to celebrate yet another milestone for the Wild Turkey Distillery.

“This is the crowning jewel of the site,” said Gerry Ruvo, chairman and CEO of Campari America, which purchased Wild Turkey in 2009.
