Jefferson’s Grand Selection Chateau Suduiraut Sauterners Cask Finish
Thomas Jefferson, our third president, was a wine aficionado. He was America’s first ambassador to France and, while there, fell in love with the finest wines of Bordeaux. Once of his favorites, listed on a 1787 inventory manifest, is Chateau Suduiraut, which he called “President du Roy,” an exceptional Sauternes.
Based on our experience finishing Jefferson’s in innovative ways and in various types of casks, we felt strongly that the sweetness of the Chateau Suduiraut wine and the toasted staves of the French oak wine casks would complement our well aged, complex Kentucky Straight Bourbon whiskey. We were not disappointed.
After hand selecting forty Suduiraut barrels, refilling them with Jefferson’s Reserve bourbon, and extra aging them in our proprietary “hot box” environment we have created a one of a kind bourbon. This combines the sweetness of Sauternes, the wood notes of both American and French oak, and the grain of a premium bourbon in a delicious, complex and balanced final product.

About Jefferson’s Grand Selection Chateau Suduiraut Sauterners Cask Finish
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 Trey’s 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. 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.
