Jeffersons Grand Selection Chateau Suduiraut Sauternes Cask Finish

The principal author of the Declaration of Independence and one of the greatest Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson was elected the third President of the United States in 1800. During his tenure, Jefferson authorized the purchase of the Louisiana Territory, dispatched Lewis and Clark westward in order to explore the remainder of the continent and repealed the Whiskey Excise Tax.After Jefferson retired from public office in 1815, he often tended to the garden that he had cultivated on his Monticello estate. At the time, it was customary for wealthy farmers, including Jefferson, to distill the excess grains they harvested from their farms into spirits (George Washington was one of the countrys largest distillers of rye whiskey). As a result, each farmers spirits were unique and reflected the local terroir of their farm. The Jeffersons brand pays homage to Jefferson and the exquisite whiskey he distilled.Jeffersons Bourbon is a blender and bottler of spirits. Launched in 1997 by Trey and his father Chet Zoeller, a bourbon historian. First released in 1997, Jeffersons has several offerings in their lineup, and utilizes very innovative and experimental blending and aging techniques. For example, their Jeffersons Ocean expression is a bourbon, aged on a ship at sea, exposed to extreme weather conditions, crafting a truly distinct spirit. In the innovative spirit of aging Jeffersons whiskeys in truly innovative ways and in various cask types, they have merged the sweetness of the Chateau Suduiraut wine and the toasted staves of those French oak wine casks with their well seasoned, complex Kentucky Straight Bourbon. This yielded the Jeffersons Grand Selection Chateau Suduiraut Sauternes Cask.After hand selecting forty Suduiraut barrels, refilling them with Jeffersons Reserve bourbon, and extra aging them in a proprietary hot box environment, they have created a one of a kind bourbon full of character and flavor. This expression combines the sweetness of Sauternes, the wood notes of both American and French oak, and the grain of a premium bourbon in a delicious, complex and balanced final product.Pick up a bottle of this Chateau Suduirat finished selection today!
