Jefferson’s Grand Selection Chateau Pichon Baron French Oak Cask Finish Straight Bourbon
Jefferson’s Grand Selection Chateau range features the excellent Jefferson bourbon finished in a variety of wine casks. For example, this particular expression enjoyed a finishing period in casks that previously held Bordeaux red wine from Château Pichon Baron!
Based On Our Experience Finishing Jefferson’s In Creative Ways And In Various Types Of Casks, We Felt Strongly That The Pichon Baron Wine And The Toasted Staves Of The French Oak Wine Casks Would Complement Our Well Age, Complex Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.

We Have Created A One-Of-A-Kind Whiskey That Combines The Robust Flavors Of The Bordeaux. The Wood Notes Of Both American And French Oak And The Grain Of A Premium Bourbon In A Delicious, Complex And Balanced Final Product.
Founded in 1997, Jefferson’s is the brainchild of Trey Zoeller and his father Chet, a famed bourbon historian. To personify the brand, they chose Thomas Jefferson—known for his curiosity and experimental spirit. This is a mindset to which Trey has dedicated himself, pushing the boundaries of the definition of bourbon. Upholding tradition, yet always discovering new possibilities.
Creating very uncommon bourbon is a journey. We seek out new and aged barrels of bourbon from established distilleries that have perfected their art over hundreds of years. Then we do some old-fashioned experimenting, building balance and adding complexity through different selection, agitation, and environmental processes until we find the taste Jefferson’s is known for.
