About Jefferson’s 17 Year Old Presidential Select Bourbon Whiskey
Crafted in the final years of the Stitzel-Weller Distillery before it closed down in Louisville, Jefferson‘s Presidential Select Bourbon 17 Year Old is a high-end bourbon that was aged for 17 long years. Made after a wheated recipe, this is a big, well-balanced, and bold bourbon that showcases a stunning harmony of flavors of raisin, sherry, and chocolate. Bottled at 94 proof, this rare and silky-smooth expression is a very limited offering that’s hard to find.

The principal author of the Declaration of Independence and one of the most illustrious founding fathers, Thomas Jefferson was elected the third President of the United States in 1800. During his tenure as President, Jefferson authorized the purchase of the Louisiana Territory, dispatched Lewis and Clark westward to explore the remainder of the continent, and repealed the Whiskey Excise Tax.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 at his Monticello estate. At the time, it was customary for wealthy farmers, including Jefferson, to make their own garden spirits. Each farmer’s spirits were unique and reflected their personal tastes and the local terroir of their farm. Jefferson’s Reserve Very Old Straight Bourbon Whiskey is crafted by Chet and Trey Zoeller in honor of Jefferson and his experimental nature. While the Zoellers were inspired by Jefferson, their roots can be traced back for generations deep into Kentucky’s bourbon history.
