The Reserve is what you deserve. 
 
Jefferson’s was founded in 1997 by Trey Zoeller and his father Chet — a famed Bourbon historian who wrote the book on Kentucky Distilleries. Yes, an actual book called "Bourbon in Kentucky: A History of Distilleries in Kentucky." Heck, distilling is in their blood. In fact, eight generations ago, their super-great grandmother was arrested for the "production and sales of Spirituous liquors" in 1799. Which probably makes her the coolest ancestor ever! 
 
The "official" story is that they named their Jefferson’s Bourbon after Thomas Jefferson because of "his curiosity and experimental Spirit." It likely didn’t hurt that Jefferson allegedly ran a still on his farm when he retired from public life… so did George Washington for that matter. Anyway, this is the mindset to which they dedicated themselves, pushing the boundaries of the definition of Bourbon. Upholding tradition, yet always discovering new possibilities. They make a range of specialty Bourbons and Rye Whiskeys in small batches, all special, all interesting in their own way. Making common Spirits is not their game, no sir. 
 
Jefferson’s makes quality products, we established that. But even amidst their impressive product line, the Jefferson’s Reserve Bourbon stands out as the cream of the crop. Let’s just say it defines their taste and quality in the most obvious way. It’s a "very small batch and very old" Bourbon, like the bottle suggests, comprised of 3 straight Bourbons aged up to 20 years and bottled at 45,1 % ABV. Each bottled is classified by number and batch ID. It’s polished and balanced and offer excellent value for such a rich product. We consider it the perfect all-rounder, a gateway into the world of premium, top class Bourbon.

Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
Some ancient 18th century pieces are actually used in modern production in the Kentucky distillery.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
