Aged 17 years in brick and wood rickhouses and 86.8 proof, Master’s Keep is the longest aged whiskey released by Wild Turkey in the U.S. It’s recipe harks back to a classic released decades earlier by Eddie’s father and distilling partner, Jimmy Russell.
To mark the launch of Master’s Keep Revival in Australia, Wild Turkey held an intimate event at Saké in Sydney for media and their fathers. Guests enjoyed the first taste of Master’s Keep Revival alongside a dinner menu inspired by the bold flavours of the new premium blend while special guest, chef Andy Allen, talked about the role and power of family and revival in his journey as a chef.
Wild Turkey stakes its reputation on its traditional recipes that have been maintained since the 19th century with tactful innovations like the ones presented in the Master’s Keep series. The fourth rendition sees Eddie Russell re-visit his father’s concept with a sherry signature cask finishing on 15 year old Kentucky Straight Bourbon.
The growing appeal of private batch and single barrell programmes has paved the way for great depth in the landscape of bourbon for the most serious of conoisseurs. In an Australian exclusive, Wild Turkey recently launched Russell’s Reserve Private Select LimitedEdition bourbon, hand-picked by Master Distiller Eddie Russell. Deeply complex with flavours of caramel, liquorice and vanilla, with subtle nuances derived from the barrel in which it matures, try these two cocktail recipes when entertaining your guests.
The Auburn Hotel is at it again. Just when we thought they couldn’t top the botanical garden summer pop-up day beds, they’ve answered the call to Winter with a magical construct of igloos. Teaming up with Wild Turkey, its the sweet edge of their American Honey bourbon that will flavour the complementing cocktail menu of the season! Melbourne Rooftop Honey keeps the menu on theme with packages available also available for larger groups of up to 28 in the mega igloo!
