As Johnny Walker Black is to Scotch, Jefferson’s Small Batch is to Bourbon.
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. In 2007 Jefferson’s was sold to Castle Brands as they build their own liquor empire portfolio of premium Spirits.
They make no bones about it — Jefferson’s Small Batch is a blend of very small batch Bourbons. Ridiculously small, really. Taking up to 4 different Kentucky Straight Bourbons and marrying them together, you’re in for loads of complexity and balance but not at the account of consistency every Bourbon needs. Since the Bourbons that make up this blend are chosen as needed to maintain the character of the product, an age statement is not possible. But Jefferson’s Small Batch is a premium Bourbon that deserves to be in the top category. Think of it like this — as Johnny Walker Black is to Scotch, Jefferson’s Small Batch is to Bourbon. Big enough for the connoissuer, approachable enough for those who are just getting into the whole premium Bourbon thing-y.
