This Jefferson is made from a Canadian Rye, aged first in #3 char barrels and then double barrel in a split between char #3 and toasted barrels. That is then set up on the world by boat, gently aging for a while.
The constant motion and the dramatic fluctuations in the air temperature caramelizes the sugars in the wood and the salt air permeates the barrels. The final result, rye whiskey that is darker, richer and more caramelized. It is then non-chill filtered, allowing for an even fuller flavor profile bringing you a rye like no other.
Ever since it was founded in the late 90s, Jefferson’s always had a penchant for crafting innovative whiskey expressions. Named after American’s third president, who was also known for creating unique distillates, the brand imparts flavors into their expressions in a variety of ways from the classic cask-finishing to their more meticulous Aged At Sea approach which gave rise to their small batch line dubbed Jefferson's Ocean.
