WILD TURKEY BOURBON OFFERS "TRIBUTE" TO COMMEMORATE THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF MASTER DISTILLER JIMMY RUSSELL
LAWRENCEBURG, KENTUCKY - Pernod Ricard USA announces the release of Wild Turkey Tribute, a limited edition, 15-year old, small batch bourbon to commemorate Master Distiller Jimmy Russell's fifty years of service at the world famous Wild Turkey Bourbon Distillery in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky.
Produced in a very limited quantity of 5,500 bottles, Wild Turkey Tribute is hand selected by Jimmy from a unique batch of sweet "sugar-barrels" which he set aside 15 years ago. The specially designed 750ml bottle and stylish wood case, in which it is packaged, will be available nationally in September.
Bottled at 101 proof to retain the flavor and characteristics of a true bourbon, Wild Turkey Tribute has an authentic bourbon nose, rich with sweetness and corn. Its smooth, clean full-bodied flavor delivers a balance of caramel and vanilla, and the finish is highlighted by subtle wood and spice tones.
Jimmy Russell is only the third master distiller in the storied history of Wild Turkey Bourbon," said Joe Uranga, global brand director, Wild Turkey Bourbon. "This homage to Jimmy is a true reflection of his half-century of passion and commitment to making Wild Turkey Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, the world's greatest bourbon."
Revered by many whisky aficionados as the greatest and wisest distiller in the world, Jimmy is living proof that dedication, perseverance and a commitment to quality are the foundation for success. "It is only fitting that Wild Turkey Tribute? embodies the authenticity, heritage and tradition that Jimmy has represented in his fifty years at Wild Turkey," said Uranga.
Wild Turkey Bourbon is America's best-selling, premium bourbon. Carefully crafted in the heart of Kentucky, Wild Turkey uses the finest natural ingredients and time-honored distilling traditions to create its distinctive, superior taste.
