Talking Whiskey With Eddie Russell  

What’s more traditional in the world of whiskey than the Russell family at Wild Turkey? You might say that bourbon is in their blood, this multigenerational team of master distillers. Today, Eddie Russell and his legendary father, Jimmy Russell, share the top distilling job at the company, and together can count 101 years of professional experience. (A fitting number, of course, given Wild Turkey’s flagship product.)
It’s an unparalleled active legacy. And it spans an array of top-quality whiskey products, like the popular Master’s Keep line. First launched by Eddie in 2014, this super-premium series shows off the oldest expressions of Wild Turkey.
What’s What the 2019 Yakima Hop Harvest Says About Craft Beer
Want to know what’s next in craft beer? Look first to Yakima.
About 75% of America’s annual hop harvest comes from this fertile, sundrenched valley in south central Washington. Every September, mechanized systems on huge farms begin by stripping hops from off their vines. Next the harvest is sorted, heated, and packaged into big bales. It’s an awesome display of American farming that results in approximately 45 million pounds of produce every year.
Harvest time sees brewers from around the world descend upon Yakima. This sleepy, rambling city — surrounded by golden-brown hills — transforms into craft beer mecca. Hop farmers and wholesalers host brewers in a process known as “hop selection,” which determines what and how much the breweries will buy.
In this way, beer flavor begins in Yakima.

The U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill this week to protect the cannabis industry’s access to banks and credit unions.
