The Wild Turkey event series launches in Sydney to encourage Australians to do thing the Wild Turkey Way at the Annandale Hotel on Thursday 4 May 2017.
Wild Turkey has teamed up with famed Australian artists to create an event series which will hit Sydney and Melbourne hotspots throughout May. Wild Turkey Bourbon’s iconic master distillers, Jimmy and Eddie Russell wish to encourage Australians to do things the Wild Turkey Way.
For the launch, guests were also among the first to taste the new signature cocktail, the Wild Turkey Kentucky Firebird – a smoke infused beverage that enhances the bold flavours of genuine bourbon. Guests watched bartenders live-smoked each glass with American oak woodchips before adding Grand Marnier, Cinzano Rosso, Maraschino to enhance the flavours of Wild Turkey 101. Other Wild Turkey cocktails served that night included: Wild Turkey Kentucky Fresh Apple (Wild Turkey 86.8 Bourbon topped with freshly squeezed apple juice); and Wild Turkey Kentucky Gold Rush (Wild Turkey 86.8 Bourbon, Lemon Juice and Honey syrup, shaken garnished with a fresh lemon wedge).
The bourbon-themed menu for the night was created by famed burger king, Josh Arthurs from Burgers by Josh. He added smoky bourbon flavours to the Americana style food menu including: smoked turkey wingettes with peach and bourbon BBQ sauce; cheeseburger spring rolls with Signature Wagyu Sriracha, Wild Turkey infused cheese sauce and sweet and sour pickles; nacho tatter tots with guacamole sour cream, Pico de galle and Wild Turkey cheese sauce; the wild south cheeseburger with signature wagyu chipotle mayo, sweet and sour pickles and Wild Turkey peach and BBQ sauce; and Wild Turkey chocolate brownie made with whipped Irish Cream Wild Turkey, Hershey chocolate sauce and candied nuts.
The Sydney events will launch 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.
The launch of The Wild Turkey Way follows the announcement of Academy Award winning actor, Matthew McConaughey, who joined the Wild Turkey team as Creative Director to tell the story behind the Master Distillers.
Events will be held at the Annandale Hotel in Sydney on the 12th, 19th and 26th of May. The events are free to the public.
