I don't see why not.
Hate to tell that person if they are hoping to create a high ACV 'cider/wine' from 5.8 gallons of apple juice, which typically has a SG of 1.030, sometimes up to 1.050, and then less than 1 cup sugar per gallon which will contribute close to 0.020....well it will not be any higher than perhaps 9% if everything is at the high end of the spectrum, maybe 6.5% if on the low end.
Turbo yeast does not create a flavored end product...in the prohibition whiskey kit they include a sucrose/citric packet, odds are there is a flavoring somewhere in the kit, perhaps the stabiliser packet, to give it a whiskey profile because water + sugar + yeast does not create anything tasting like whiskey.
Typically anything made with turbo yeast is meant to go one step further and be processed thru that unmentionable d-word process.
