Jefferson's Bourbon introduces Jefferson's Ocean II: Aged at Sea. Blended in Kentucky, Jefferson's Ocean II is comprised of bourbons aged 7 and 8 years before being loaded on a ship. More than 62 barrels were sent around the world, stopping at over 40 ports at sea and bottled at a 90 proof (45% ABV).
This is the second ocean-aged bourbon to be released by Jefferson's and will be available March 1; the first debuted in August 2012 with 250 bottles released nationally.
The constant rocking of the ocean, fluctuation in temperature and saline-rich air help mature the whiskey faster and add depth to the bourbon.
Jefferson's Ocean II will be available across the country at the suggested retail price of $69.99 for a 750ml bottle.
About Jefferson's Bourbon Jefferson's Bourbon was founded by Trey Zoeller in 1997. Zoeller purchases aged bourbon in barrels and allows it to mature even further before marrying it into "ridiculously small batches." Starting with Jefferson's Reserve, Jefferson's has expanded their line to include Jefferson's Bourbon, Jefferson's Presidential Select, Jefferson's Rye, Jefferson's Ocean, and Jefferson's Chef's Collaboration.
