Pernod Ricard has launched a new expression from its Jefferson’s Bourbon whiskey brand.
Jefferson’s Bourbon Ocean Voyage 24 is available now from selected off-premise outlets. The iteration joins the brand’s ‘Ocean: aged at sea’ collection, where whiskies spend time maturing on a boat that travels through different parts of the world.
Ocean Voyage 24 spent an unspecified period resting in barrels aboard a ship travelling through the Caribbean and Central America, a journey the company said gives the whiskey a distinct flavour as a result of the high temperatures and humidity.
Pernod inherited Jefferson’s through its US$223m purchase of former parent Castle Brands in 2019. The Jefferson’s range comprises the flagship namesake Bourbon, as well as Jefferson’s Presidential Select, Jefferson’s Reserve, Jefferson’s Wine Finish Collection and Jefferson’s Wood Experiments.
Last week, Pernod launched an addition to the Dair Ghaelach series of Irish whiskies from its Midleton brand.
