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 great-great-grandmother ever! They acquire and produce a range of specialty Bourbons and Rye Whiskeys, pushing the boundaries of Bourbon whilst preserving tradition. In 2007, Jefferson’s was sold to Castle Brands as they build their own liquor empire portfolio of premium Spirits.

Jefferson’s Twin Oak Kentucky Straight Bourbon was born in August 2018. They partnered with Independent Stave Company, which is a family-owned cooperage 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. This creates more surface area inside the barrel, hence, more intensive aging. 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.

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.
"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."
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.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of 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.
