Inspired by the original Jeffersonâ€™s Ocean, which was new-filled bourbon barrels, the Jeffersonâ€™s Ocean: Aged at Sea takes older bourbon barrels and brings it around the world. Stopping in 5 different continents and crossing the equator 4 times, this bourbon truly is a world-beater.
A boat is a singularly uncommon place to age bourbon, but inspiration struck Trey on the deck of his friend Chris Fischerâ€™s research ship. While watching Jeffersonâ€™s Reserve bourbon rock gently in its bottle, they wondered what would happen to bourbon aged on the bow of a ship. The caramelizing of the sugars in the barrel combined with the constant motion of the ship resulted in a dark bourbon with a briny, savory taste aged beyond its years.
The first batch of Jeffersonâ€™s Ocean was bottled in 2012. Distilled in Kentucky and aged for four years on the deck of a research vessel in the tropics, its dark, complex flavor rivaled whiskeys several times its age and it quickly sold out. Now, the next round has headed out to open sea and this time, the barrels, aged up to 8 years, will be going all the way around the world. Check back soon to explore the progress of the vessel and find out how itâ€™s tasting.
