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 Special Wheated Voyage 19 is limited to three award-winning barrels.
