About Jefferson's Ocean Special Wheated Voyage 22 Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Jefferson’s Ocean Aged At Sea Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey pays homage to Jefferson and the exquisite whiskey he distilled.

But the Ocean lineup is extra special in that it experiments with how maturing aboard a ship affects a spirit. The vessel in question is Ocearch's flagship, and this is the 22nd bourbon that has traveled the world aboard it. The bourbon uses wheat in its mash bill as its small grain instead of the typical rye. The lighter wheat allows the sweetness of the corn to build through the maturation process. Once barreled and allowed to mature on land, it was put to sea, where it was immediately and continually influenced by the salt air and constant movement of the ship.

Crossing the equator, the liquid was exposed to extreme changes in temperature as the ship transitioned from winter to summer and vice versa without the buffer of spring and fall. Extreme heat caused the sugars of the corn to caramelize in the wood and work their way into the bourbon as the wood contracted with the extreme drop in temperature. Without having to compete with the spice of the rye, the bourbon of OCEAN Voyage 22 took on a great deal of vanilla and salted caramel corn as its dominant flavor with a subtle wood finish.

About Jefferson's

The principal author of the Declaration of Independence and one of the most illustrious founding fathers, Thomas Jefferson was elected the third President of the United States in 1800. During his tenure as President, Jefferson authorized the purchase of the Louisiana Territory, dispatched Lewis and Clark westward to explore the remainder of the continent, and repealed the Whiskey Excise Tax.

After Jefferson retired from public office in 1815, he often tended to the garden that he had cultivated at his Monticello estate. At the time, it was customary for wealthy farmers, including Jefferson, to make their own garden spirits. Each farmer's spirits were unique and reflected their personal tastes and the local terroir of their farm. Jefferson's Reserve Very Old Straight Bourbon Whiskey is crafted by Chet and Trey Zoeller in honor of Jefferson and his experimental nature. While the Zoellers were inspired by Jefferson, their roots can be traced back for generations deep into Kentucky's bourbon history.
