Wild Turkey’s Master Distillers have always done things their own way. It’s what separates the American bourbon from the competition. The Wild Turkey Way event channels uniqueness when it hits Sydney on the 26th May by encouraging Aussies to take pride in doing things their way.
The Sydney event will host a unique gallery of artwork featuring ARIA award-winning musician turned artist Bertie Blackman; maverick street artist and sculptor Will Coles; and multidisciplinary star Nikolaus Dolman. Each piece of art has been crafted onto Wild Turkey White Oak barrel lids and will represent each artist’s interpretation of an uncompromised approach to life.
Catering is handled by famed burger pioneer Josh Arthurs, from Burgers by Josh, who created an original bourbon-themed menu with ‘wild’ at its heart. Kick-starting another revolution in burgers, Josh combines his signature Americana style including The Wild South Cheeseburger with Wild Turkey Bourbon, peach and BBQ sauce, and Smoked Turkey Wings with sticky Wild Turkey Bourbon marinade.
Sydneysiders will also be among the first to experience the new signature cocktail, the Wild Turkey Kentucky Firebird – a smoke-infused drop that enhances the bold flavours of real bourbon. The specialty cocktail sees each glass live-smoked with American oak woodchips before combining the sweet and bitter hints of Grand Marnier, Cinzano Rosso and Maraschino to balance the unique flavours of Wild Turkey 101. Other signature serves on offer include the lemon and honey infused Wild Turkey Gold Rush and the refreshing Wild Turkey Fresh Apple with crisp, freshly squeezed apple juice and a dash of lime.
Sadly Matthew McConaughey won’t be attending, despite joining the Wild Turkey team as Creative Director to tell the story behind the Master Distillers. The Wild Turkey Way is already underway, it hit Melbourne earlier this month with one more scheduled evens at the Annandale Hotel in Sydney on the 26th of May. Entry is free.
