This Bourbon started as an experiment with only three Bourbon barrels on basement master Trey’s friend, Chris Fischer from OCEARCH’s ship, in a curious effort to find out what would happen if Bourbon were left to overcome the extreme elements: temperature fluctuations, salt air and the gentle rocking of the ship. The result was a thick, dark bourbon that shows the complex taste reminiscent of other spirits – the almost black color and caramel taste resembles a dark rum when the sugars in the dishes became caramelized – the salt from the dishes that draws the sea air from the weather, reminiscent of Whiskey Islay – and at its core it is a real Bourbon. Due to a massive demand from consumers, Trey has now commercialized this experiment and shipped hundreds of barrels worldwide. Jefferson’s Ocean typically crosses the equator four times, visiting five continents and over 30 ports on an average voyage. Try it out with one of our great Cuban or New World Cigars.
