Take a trip to Wild Turkey country
The new Wild Turkey Guided Tasting Experience is an innovative chance to send your bourbon expertise soaring...
Wild Turkey is the famous Kentucky brand who have been beloved by American icons for generations, with current ‘creative director’ and BOM favourite Matthew McConaughey making a big stir of late with his hugely acclaimed new creation, Longbranch.
On Monday 14th June – which is National Bourbon Day – Jimmy and Eddie Russell, master distillers from the ‘first family of bourbon’, are now giving UK fans an exciting chance to learn more with the Wild Turkey Tasting Experience through your Amazon device.
Jimmy is the longest-serving active master distiller in the world, with 60 years of experience earning him the title of the ‘Buddha of Bourbon’, which is perhaps the best nickname we’ve ever heard. His son Eddie joined him as master distiller in 2015 – with a ‘mere’ 35 years experience at Wild Turkey under his belt – making this father-son team utterly unique and this virtual tasting not to be missed.
Simply by saying ‘Alexa, Enable Wild Turkey Tasting’, you’ll be transported to Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, where the Wild Turkey distillery lies. You can then select your particular whiskey from their range – Wild Turkey 101, Longbranch, Rare Breed, Wild Turkey 101 Rye and Kentucky Spirit – and have the Russells guide you through the distilling process, the nosing and the tasting. It is a brilliant way to get to know Wild Turkey and to enhance your drinking experience.
Over the last year the range of virtual experience has been developing and deepening, and this particular one is a real joy – somewhere between an interactive tour and a podcast. For bourbon fans, hell for fans of simple human history and a good time, it is one to spend some quality time with.
