Ridiculously Small Batch Bourbon

Color: light amber 

 Nose: The nose is very nice and light but at the same time has lots of explosive rye spice. It has a slight youthfulness to it but that doesn’t detract from the overall nose. 

Taste: The front palate begins with the same nice rye notes that you get from the nose and then rises into the bourbon spectrum with a very well balanced oak and cherry flavor. 

 Finish: The Chef’s Collaboration finish is fairly long but mellow with continued oak, cherry and cinnamon flavor.

Jefferson's Chef Collaboration

Jefferson's Chef Collaboration

A late night spent tasting some of chef Edward Lee’s culinary creations led Trey to the idea that someone should blend a bourbon that would pair well with the bold flavors in chef Lee’s cookbook and other modern cuisine. Without hesitation, Trey and Ed set forth. The result is a blend with a spicy upfront and a fruity finish, enhanced by the addition of rye whiskey into the mix. Perfect with meals, for mixing.

Handcrafted in Ridiculously Small Batches by skillfully marrying a selection of 8 to 12 barrels of various ages. 

Big distilleries have perfected the science of distilling; Trey Zoeller adds the art of blending and experimenting, manipulating the maturation process to add balance and complexity. Inspired by the sophistication of Thomas Jefferson. 

Main growth in the last decade in the bourbon category came from premium (75 %) and super premium segment (254 %) = Jefferson’s Range. 

Craft Fact 
Jefferson’s Ocean is making waves with limited-edition bottles that were aged for five months at sea, soaking up the salt air, luxuriating in humidity and sloshing around in oak barrels.

Neat, on the rocks or in a classic cocktail

Ridiculously Small Batch Bourbon

The whiskey has a starbright aroma of peaches, blackberries, caramel corn and toffee, which leads to a palate marked by burnt oak, red wine, cinnamon spice and dark and dried fruits. The finish is long and dry, with lasting notes of sweet tobacco, cornbread and baked apples.

Jefferson's Groth Reserve Cask

Jefferson's Groth Reserve Cask

The new Jefferson’s Reserve Groth Reserve Cask Finish has first been aged in new American oak for six years. From there it was finished in Groth Cabernet Sauvignon barrels for a further nine months. Groth is a well respected winery out of California’s Napa Valley, and its cab in particular is considered an wine in its grape varietal category, which is thus likely why those behind Jefferson’s turned to them to get hold of the wine casks for this special release.

Jefferson's Manhattan

Jefferson's Manhattan

This Manhattan barrel-finished cocktail is coming from the first collaboration of Esquire and Jefferson's Bourbon. Crafted with the editors of Esquire, this new pre-batched cocktail is available at select retailers worldwide.

The new cocktail was conceptualized in 2003 by Esquire's Editor-in-Chief Devid Granger and Jefferson's Bourbon founder Trey Zoeller, in an effort to provide bourbon enthusiasts with a barrel-finished bottled cocktail that enhances the experience of enjoying a classic.

Dozens of recipes had been tested until three recipes were chosen. Those three options were then aged for 90 days in bourbon barrels until just one stood out as a superior Manhattan. 
Perfect serve
Enjoy it as you would any Manhattan: on the rocks or stirred and strained over ice. Garnish with a cherry and an orange peel.

Ridiculously Small Batch Bourbon

Nose: A strong dose of raisins and citrus hits with a great deal more intensity than you’d expect for 90 proof. 

Palate: Raisins come through immediately and dominate the whole sip, making it very sweet throughout. Spice and alcohol come into play as well, ramping up quickly once the bourbon enters your mouth and pushing into the finish. Like the intensity on the nose, there’s more flavor and spice intensity than you’d expect for the proof. 

Finish: Along with the spice the raisins continue to pull through. That citrus detected on the nose also makes itself present again. The intense spice drops off quickly leaving a faint but sweet, fruity aftertaste that continues to linger for a while.

Jefferson's Wood Experiment Collection Box Set #2

The inspiration behind Jefferson’s Wood Experiment Collection came from Trey spending time in a wine cooperage in Missouri. Wine cooperages are different than what you find in Kentucky as they have different treating processes, which focus more on toasting, slow cooking, and searing to bring different flavors to the forefront. It was at this point we asked, "How could we change up what the final flavors of the bourbon are after we mature it in typical bourbon barrels?” Trey started by putting 4 year old bourbon that had been aged in new charred white oak barrels, and finished it in 13 different environments/vessels. There were so many combinations to experiment with – new bourbon barrels, new wine barrels, wine barrel heads on a new bourbon barrel, insert oak staves that have been seared, or oak cubes that have been slow cooked, etc. Over a period of 32 months, we charted the characteristics of each experiment monthly and analyzed how the different treatments have affected the outcome of the final whiskey. 

We decided to bottle them up in five 200 milliliter experiments so you can try five different experiments and see for yourself how these small changes make a vast difference.
