Jefferson's Ocean Aged at Sea Bourbon
Inspired by the original Jefferson's Ocean, which was new-filled bourbon barrels, the Jeffersons 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.
What began as a fun experiment has resulted in a more scientific approach to the maturation process of bourbon. When whiskey was first distilled in Kentucky, it received unintentional extra age from traveling on rivers and seas en route to market. This was not just due to the lengthy trips, but also the movement of the ship which forced the liquid in the whiskey barrels to be in constant motion coming in contact with the wood more often.
At Jefferson's, they wanted to tip their hat to this tradition by aging bourbon out at sea. This process has added salty, caramel elements that round out the bourbon's profile to create an American treasure that has been cultured as it traveled the globe.
