Bruce Russell, Associate Blender and National Ambassador, Wild Turkey

Description: The saying, “like father, like son” isn’t lost on Eddie and Bruce Russell. In Eddie’s case, his own 42-year career was built on the legacy of his own father – the legendary maker Jimmy Russell. According to a letter Bruce, who holds the title of Associate Blender and National Ambassador, posted on the Wild Turkey website, Wild Turkey 101 will take on a new meaning on September 10 when Jimmy and Eddie will celebrate their combined 101 years of Bourbon industry experience. Join us to hear stories from and about this legendary family with samples from the brand.
