Wild Turkey Longbranch Bourbon

Apr 18, 2018

Partnering with Master Distiller Eddie Russell, showbiz prince and Wild Turkey creative director Matthew McConaughey have worked to add a little Texas flair to the distillery’s small batch recipe. Dubbed, Wild Turkey Longbranch, this is one unique expression of their famed 8-year bourbon named for friends that form the longest branches of a family tree.

Part of what makes Longbranch one-of-a-kind is that it’s now refined with Texas mesquite and oak charcoals for both deeper flavor and complexity through and through. We’re talking an aroma filled with notes of vanilla and oak spices and a palate offering the many-tasting flavors of caramel and pear with complementary notes of citrus. As for the finish? That’s where the Texas influence comes into play – imparting subtle smokey flavors with additional notes of pepper and toasted oak. Available now at the Wild Turkey visitor center in Lawrenceburg, KY and across the nation in the coming months for around $40 a bottle.
