An experiment in wood science and time poured neat from Jefferson’s.

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 their portfolio of premium spirits.

There are a ton of things unique about Jefferson’s — WAY too many to list here. But they are the only distiller that we know of that has an actual “R&D” page on their website. Of course, R&D stands for Research and Development, and innovation is so ingrained in their Whiskey-making DNA that they dedicate a big effort changing things up. Jefferson’s Twin Oak Kentucky Straight Bourbon is based on one of those special projects. They partnered with Independent Stave Company in Missouri to have custom barrels made with deep grooves cut into the inside of the casks to increase surface area before slow-toasting and flash-charring them inside. Then they took the 10 Year Old Jefferson’s signature Bourbon and finished it in these casks for four months before bottling it up at wonderful 45.1% ABV.

Some ancient 18th century pieces are actually used in modern production in the Kentucky distillery.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
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.
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 matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
