A flavorful sea-faring Bourbon tasting twice its age.

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.” And eight generations ago, their great-great-grandmother was arrested for the “production and sales of spiritous liquors” in 1799. Which makes her the coolest ancestor ever! They acquire and produce a range of specialty Bourbons and Rye Whiskies. In 2007 Jefferson’s was sold to Castle Brands to build portfolio of premium spirits.

The Ocean Voyage series was launched in 2012. Here’s the idea… instead of putting the casks of aging Bourbon in a stationary warehouse, they put them on a research ship plying equatorial waters. After three years of near constant motion in warm, tropical seas, the Bourbon takes on the characteristics of a much older Whiskey. And the using a wheat-forward mash bill (less rye grain) means a smoother, sweeter experience. The current release is “Voyage 15” and each release is limited to three award-winning barrels, served at a wonderful 45% ABV.

OCEARCH was founded by Chris Fischer as a non-profit organization doing scientific research on great white and tiger sharks. His research vessel — the MV OCEARCH — serves as the aging warehouse for Jefferson’s Aged at Sea Bourbons.

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.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
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.
