The latest release of Jefferson’s famous Aged at Sea Bourbon has arrived at port with complex, salted caramel profile.

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 upon their portfolio of premium Spirits.

The Jefferson’s Ocean series started as an experiment of just three barrels. Each limited edition release of Jefferson’s "Aged at Sea" Ocean series is different — they call them "Voyages." The Bourbon is aged literally at sea. The route, the temperatures, and tossing of the sea are different. And they experiment with different mash bills, distillations, and woods too.

Jefferson’s Ocean Aged at Sea Voyage 23 Bourbon is the current release. It starts with a blend conventionally aged Jefferson’s Bourbon seven and eight years old. They are married and "finished at sea." Each release has crossed the equator four times on average before reaching port and being bottled at 45% ABV.

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.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
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.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
