This month we would like to introduce you to Jefferson’s Ocean. It is produced by Jefferson which was founded in 1997 by Chet and Trey Zoeller. Jefferson’s is located just minutes from downtown Louisville, at the Kentucky Artisan Distillery in Crestwood, Kentucky. Jefferson’s Ocean is a thick, dark bourbon that showcases complex flavors as it ages in barrels aboard a sea bound ship.
OREACH and Jefferson’s
In 2012 Jefferson’s partnered with OCEARCH. This globally recognized nonprofit is dedicated to the study and tracking of keystone marine species. Jefferson’s wanted to test out a theory. The theory being that constant movement of the liquid in the barrels ages the whiskey faster because more of the liquid is in contact with the wood more often. Hence, Jefferson’s Ocean was born. Each barrel of Jefferson’s Ocean crosses the equator four times, visits five continents and over 30 ports on an average sailing. This is said to give it it’s unique briny, savory taste from the barrels breathing the sea air. Jefferson’s ocean is our select bourbon this quarter in our Bourbon Club.
