Jefferson makes bourbons in small batches, ridiculously small batches. 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 Treys 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.
Jefferson's Very Small Batch handcrafted bourbon has been aged in the heart of metal clad warehouses to accentuate the extreme temperatures that Kentucky is blessed with, forcing the bourbon to expand deep into the barrel and pull out the prevalent flavors of the wood. These flavors of vanilla, caramel and assorted fruits assure an incredibly smooth taste and finish.
