Spirit of the Wild: “Switch off, to switch on”

Home » Spirit of the Wild: “Switch off, to switch on”

Wild Turkey has launched the Spirit of the Wild – a masterclass series that encourages Australians to unplug, get off the couch and reconnect with the outdoors.

Chris & Cam Grant, Unyoked – “Minimum Footprint, Maximum Chill” is the Unyoked Philosophy: “We’re all about adventure-and-chill. There’s too much concrete and too many commitments in the world already, let’s all go wander in the woods.” Discover more and start exploring here

Crafted by Wild Turkey, in collaboration with Chris and Cam Grant, the founders of Unyoked (an off-grid cabin movement) and sustainable Chef Darren Robertson (Three Blue Ducks and Rocker), Spirit of the Wild invites Australians to enjoy and appreciate an evening of real food, real craft and the real outdoors.

Spirit of the Wild will come to life via a series of on-premise events across the country starting in Sydney at the Terminus Hotel in Pyrmont.

Helping Aussies experience the ultimate antidote to modern life, attendees will also hear from Unyoked and how they’re pioneering the trend to make the wilderness accessible.

For those wanting to disconnect entirely from the distractions of the city, 20 tickets are available for an exclusive one-night-only camping event to be held in Glenworth Valley on 21 September.

Cam and Chris Grant, founders of Unyoked say, “These days we often mistake living for having a life. We created Unyoked as a remedy for that. We used to appreciate the benefits of the wilderness and disconnecting from our busy lives but being connected 24/7 has led most of us to forget that. We’re excited to be partnering with Wild Turkey to help folks remember to unplug.”

It’s great to team up with Wild Turkey to inspire more people to experience, learn about, and enjoy real food.  / Stanton & Co Photography
