Behind the Barrel sponsored by Wild Turkey


     

Virtual Behind the Barrel returns this year to once again bring together members of our industry family from near and far.

We look forward to sharing this interactive take on Behind the Barrel and will be hosting a series of sessions for you to follow along, play along, and sip along with us all from your own home; including the family that made it all possible – from legendary Master Distillers Jimmy and Eddie Russell, and the next generation, Bruce Russell.

Though we cannot be with you in person this year, we are excited to bring our friends from around the globe together virtually for this experience.
