Founded in 1997, Jefferson’s is the brainchild of Trey Zoeller and his father Chet, a famed bourbon historian. They were continuing a family tradition that goes back to Trey’s 8th generation grandmother who was arrested in 1799 for the “production and sales of spirituous liquors.” To personify the brand, they chose Thomas Jefferson—known for his curiosity and experimental spirit. This is a mindset to which Trey has dedicated himself, pushing the boundaries of the definition of bourbon. Upholding tradition, yet always discovering new possibilities.
JEFFERSONS SMALL BATCH
Jefferson’s Bourbon is made in very small batches. Actually, ridiculously small batches. They take up to four different Kentucky straight bourbon whiskies of different ages and marry them together. Doing this they manage get a lot of complexity and balance while maintaining the consistency needed in a bourbon (one of the blends comprising of at least 55% of the total). They wanted to make it big enough for the connoisseur, yet approachable for people just getting into the premium bourbon field.
Interestingly, it's aged in lightly charred barrels, which imparts a distinctive flavour profile compared to whiskey aged in barrels with a high level of char.
