Not only does September 10, 2018 mark Jimmy Russell’s 64th anniversary distilling bourbon whiskey at Wild Turkey, but it also marks 101 years of Jimmy & Eddie Russell’s combined bourbon industry experience.  What a truly remarkable accomplishment!

I’d considered sharing my own thoughts, but I think Bruce Russell summed it up perfectly in his heartfelt letter published earlier today.  What an amazing tribute of appreciation from the third generation of Tyrone, Kentucky’s legendary bourbon family.  Well done, Bruce.  And cheers to Jimmy and Eddie!  Wishing you all the very best on this very special day.
