  • WHY: A few years back, Jefferson’s added a wheated Bourbon expression to its ocean-aged whiskey editions and offered select retailers individual and exclusive single casks. This particular barrel was selected by Mission and has all the sweetly-spiced and creamy character our customers crave from their wheated Bourbon. The nose is a deep blast of rich oak, bolstered by clove and nutmeg notes, and layered with vanilla custard and pencil shavings. On the palate, the sweetness comes on immediately and the oak spices dominate even more, with waves of cedar and tobacco on the finish.
  • HOW: Aged at sea, the Bourbon barrels are rocked and rolled across the ocean waves, forcing the liquid to interact with the wood at a greater volume than sitting stationary in a warehouse. The use of wheat instead of rye in the mash bill adds a creaminess in place of the peppery rye, making the whiskey richer and sweeter rather than herbaceous.
  • WHAT: Jefferson’s made its name by originally selling legendary barrels of wheated Stitzel-Weller Bourbon (aka the original Pappy Van Winkle) until supplies dried up and the brand had to pivot to another distillery contract. But Jefferson’s found a new niche with its ocean-matured series, that puts the barrels on an ocean liner to mature at sea. Jefferson’s does not disclose the source of its whiskies, but did sign a contract with Kentucky Artisan Distillery in Crestwood, KY in 2015 to source its whiskies moving forward.
