The principal author of the Declaration of Independence and one of the greatest Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson, was elected the third President of the United States in 1800. During his tenure, Jefferson authorized the purchase of the Louisiana Territory, dispatched Lewis and Clark westward to explore the remainder of the continent, and repealed the Whisky Excise Tax.

After Jefferson retired from public office in 1815, he often tended to the garden that he had cultivated on his Monticello estate. At the time, it was customary for wealthy farmers, including Jefferson, to distill the excess grains they harvested from their farms into spirits (George Washington was one of the country’s largest distillers of rye whiskey). As a result, each farmer’s spirits were unique and reflected the local terroir of their farm. Jefferson’s Ocean Aged At Sea Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey pays homage to Jefferson and the exquisite whiskey he distilled.

The barrels for this special Jefferson’s Ocean Aged At Sea Bourbon Whiskey Voyage #17 were handpicked by the team at Caskers. Characterized by its sweet and salty character, this whiskey is a small batch comprised of over 60 select bourbons aged between 6-8 years. These whiskeys are meticulously blended by founder and master blender Trey Zoeller before being placed in new, charred American oak casks and brought aboard a ship. These whiskeys are slowly married and infused by the wood’s flavor as the ship rolls back and forth over the water.

In addition, the temperature and barometric pressure fluctuations during the sea voyage cause the oak staves to expand and contract, allowing the bourbon to extract more of the tannins and flavor from the oak during maturation. After six months, the whiskey is returned to shore, tapped, and bottled at a robust 90 proof.

As a result of this unique maturation process, Jefferson’s Ocean Bourbon yields a classic bourbon aroma of sweet corn, vanilla, dark fruit, brown sugar, orange zest, dark honey, and oak. This then gives way to rich and scrumptious palate of dark fruits, spice, cherries, cinnamon, more vanilla, and oak with briny undertones all throughout, all tied together by a medium finish of caramel, wood, salt, and vanilla.
