The Hollywood star collaborates with Wild Turkey to present a very special new bourbon that pays homage to family past and present
The result of a creative collaboration between actor Matthew McConaughey and Wild Turkey Master Distiller Eddie Russell, Wild Turkey Longbranch is a small-batch Kentucky bourbon with a Texan twist. This high quality eight-year-old bourbon is aged in new American oak barrels, and then further refined with Texas mesquite and oak charcoal, giving it a subtle sweetness and unique smokiness on the finish. And the name? Since family is of chief importance to McConaughey and Russell (the latter is the third generation of his family to work at the Wild Turkey distillery), they wanted a name that spoke of this while connecting their respective states of Kentucky and Texas. Hence “Longbranch”, which speaks of the long branches of their family trees that span across locations and generations.
Aromas: Vanilla with toasty grains.
Flavours: Notes of honey and orange with a touch of oak and char.
Finish: Lingering caramel and spice give way to a hint of smokiness.
