Eddie Russell has been working in the shadow of his father, Wild Turkey’s legendary master distiller Jimmy Russell, for the last 35 years. Now, Eddie’s taking on more of the responsibility for developing new Wild Turkey and Russell’s Reserve whiskies, just as his own son enters the family business. We’ll talk with Eddie Russell and find out more about his latest project – the upcoming Master’s Keep Decades Bourbon – on this week’s WhiskyCast In-Depth. In the news, Utah’s High West Distillery could fetch $100 million at auction, Angel’s Envy has fired up the still at its new distillery in Louisville, and the Red Tape Follies return with an Irish tale that has a happy ending.
