Bourbon Bottle Signing at The Cove
Tuesday, July 24th at The Cove in the Citiplace Shopping Center, Bourbon Hall of Fame member Eddie Russell will be doing a bottle signing. Eddie is the Associate Distiller at Wild Turkey and is the fourth generation of the Russell Family to work for the distillery. He previously held the position of Director of Barrel Maturation and Warehousing before being promoted to Associate Distiller in 2007 under his father, Jimmy Russell, who is Wild Turkey's Master Distiller. Needless to say, the man has plenty of experience in the world of whiskey! Jimmy has been with Wild Turkey since 1954 and Eddie has worked along side him for the past 33 years. I still haven't been alive that along, let alone drinking bourbon that long.
The Wild Turkey family of bourbons also includes the Russell's Reserve line in addition to Rare Breed and Single Barrel whiskeys. Anybody wanting to meet Eddie and get a bottle signed just needs to show up at The Cove between 7:30 and 9:30 PM on Tuesday, 7/24. There will be some bottles on site for signing, but you're also free to bring your own bottles if you'd like to get one autographed.
