This cocktail wonder is a love at first sip!

Jefferson’s was founded in 1997 by Trey Zoeller and his father Chet — a famed Bourbon historian, who wrote the book on Kentucky distilleriesYes, 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 great-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, after he retired from public life… so did George Washington for that matter. They make a range of specialty Bourbons and Rye Whiskeys — including a very interesting "Ocean Aged at Sea" product that gets a lot of attention. In 2007, Jefferson’s was sold to Castle Brands, as they build their own liquor empire of premium Spirits. 

First things first..Jefferson´s Manhattan is a barrel-aged cocktail. Never had one before? If you like a great Whiskey cocktail like we do, then you won’t go back. Remember how James Bond always wants his drink "shaken, not stirred?" Well, you can put 007 to shame when you take your cocktail barrel-aged. 
 
They start with their premium Jefferson’s Reserve Bourbon. Then they put it into 53 gallon barrels with sweet Vermouth, dry Vermouth, and black cherry bitters to age it all a little more for a true cocktail wonder. And they DO NOT shortchange you on the cut either… This is bottled at 68 Proof. So you can go ahead and chill it on some rocks without fear.

Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Some ancient 18th century pieces are actually used in modern production in the Kentucky distillery.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
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.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
