That's a Wrap for Behind the
Returning for its eighth season, this year’s Behind the Barrel program was an unforgettable educational bourbon experience sponsored by Wild Turkey Master Distillers Jimmy and Eddie Russell as well the bourbon legend in the making Bruce Russell. This year Jimmy and Eddie poured their expertise forward to the bartending community, as they mentored the next generation of bourbon makers, advocates, and enthusiasts. 60 bartenders were chosen to visit the Wild Turkey Distillery this fall and got the chance to learn priceless knowledge surrounding the Wild Turkey legacy, and as well as created indelible memories with the Russell family.
