Jimmy Russell Celebrates 65 Years with Wild Turkey Distillery

September 10, 2019

Tuesday, September 10th marks the 65th anniversary of Jimmy Russell’s love affair with Wild Turkey Distillery. To hear him tell it, he’s never worked a day in his life because he loves the job so much – but we all know the truth.

Jimmy is a legend. One of the hardest working men in the industry. A man that others turn to for counsel. And we are so honored to call him a friend.

Everyone who has met him has a story to tell, and we encourage you to share it! Tag your favorite Jimmy photo or story on social media using the hashtag #JimmyRussell65 and tagging @WildTurkey.

Read the heartwarming letter Campari released for the occasion, and raise a glass to the legend himself, Jimmy Russell!
