The nineteenth voyage of Jefferson’s special, sea-aged treasure.

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.

If you’re a fan, you know that the Ocean Voyage series was launched in 2012. The idea is that instead of putting the casks of aging Bourbon in a stationary warehouse, they put them on a research ship plying equatorial waters. After years of near constant motion in warm, tropical seas, the Whiskey takes on the characteristics of a much older Spirit. And the using a wheat-forward mash bill (less rye grain) means a smoother, sweeter experience. Like all of these special editions, Jefferson's Ocean Aged at Sea Voyage 19 Straight Bourbon Whiskey is limited to three award-winning barrels.

Smartass corner:
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.

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.
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.
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.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
