Wild Turkey Diamond Anniversary Whiskey

Wild-Turkey-DiamondDubbed the “Master Distiller’s Master Distiller” and the “Buddha of Bourbon” by his bourbon-making peers, Bourbon Hall of Famer Jimmy Russell is a living legend among the Kentucky distilling community for his uncompromised approach to his craft. Marking 60 years in the industry this year, the integrity he has brought to the bourbon trade remains unparalleled and is reflected in every bottle of Wild Turkey.

No other American Master Distiller in history has reached such a milestone, hence the reason the brand is declaring 2014 “The Year of Jimmy Russell.” Jimmy stands as the longest-serving, active Master Distiller of a major whiskey brand in not just Kentucky, but all of North America.

To honor his father and their dynamic personal and professional relationship, Eddie Russell, an inductee into the Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame himself, created a special limited-edition mingling of 13- and 16-year-old whiskies, aptly called Wild Turkey Diamond Anniversary. While the whiskey would certainly complement any classic cocktail requiring Bourbon, Eddie’s serving suggestion for Diamond Anniversary is neat or with a little branch water — just the way Jimmy has enjoyed Wild Turkey for the last six decades. Available exclusively from May to August in the Wild Turkey Visitor Center and then nationwide in late summer, Wild Turkey Diamond Anniversary Edition has an SRP of $124.99 in the U.S.
