Wild Turkey distiller Jimmy Russell has been in the Wild Turkey bourbon business for 60 years. According to most traditions, that’s the anniversary you celebrate with a diamond, and Russell’s son Eddie has come up with a flawless blend for Wild Turkey Diamond Anniversary to honor that incredible milestone.
The barrels that produce the Diamond Anniversary Wild Turkey are all between 13 and 16 years old and were personally selected by Wild Turkey Master Distiller Eddie Russell. All in all, it’s a fitting tribute to Jimmy Russell’s 60 years with the label, going back to 1954 when he got his first job with Wild Turkey.
The Wild Turkey Diamond Anniversary bourbon is available this month from select retailers, as well as from the official Wild Turkey visitor center in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. And for more from Wild Turkey, if you’re of legal drinking age you can take a look at their official website here.
