A legend in the spirits industry is being celebrated after six decades of service. Wild Turkey’s Jimmy Russell is now the longest tenured, active Master Distiller in the world. To celebrate such a monumental work history, Wild Turkey is releasing the Diamond Anniversary bottle, a special Bourbon in Jimmy’s honor.
Eddie Russell, Jimmy Russell’s son, has worked alongside his father for more than 30 years. He helped craft the Wild Turkey Diamond Anniversary, a bourbon made from mixing 13- and 16-year-old whiskies together.
“When I was creating Wild Turkey Diamond Anniversary, my father’s voice was in my head guiding me. He taught me everything I know, so I wanted to craft something that reflected all of the invaluable knowledge he passed on to me; something that was worthy of one of the greatest Master Distillers of all time,” remarked Eddie.
Wild Turkey Diamond Anniversary will be exclusively offered at a suggested retail price of $124.99, and available nationally in small quantities starting this August.
