Four Gate Batch 18 "Saint Charente"  - 7 Year Cognac Finish

Four Gate Batch 18 "Saint Charente" - 7 Year Cognac Finish

$210.00

Four Gate Whiskey Company has announced its latest release of barrel Finished craft American whiskey: "Saint Charente."

Saint Charente is a 7 Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon finished in cognac casks.

Cognac is a varietal of Brandy produced in and around the region of France known as Cognac. It is made from distilled grapes, usually white, and aged in French Oak casks much in the same way whiskey is aged.

The underlying bourbon was distilled and aged in Kentucky from a mash bill of 75% Corn, 21% Rye, and 4% malted Barley.

I absolutely love the nose on this batch," said Chief Blending Officer, Bill Straub. "It has tons of orchard fruits from those cognac casks and the French oak gave it some great baking spice notes as well. It's like apple pie.'

The Batch is named for the River Charente that flows through the Cognac region of France.

"All the little towns in that area are called 'Saint' this or that," said Chief Barrel Officer, Bob D'Antoni. "We added the Saint in front of Charente in homage of that."

Jefferson's Ocean Aged at Sea 90 Proof

Jefferson's Ocean Aged at Sea 90 Proof

$79.99

The principal author of the Declaration of Independence and one of the greatest Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson was elected the third President of the United States in 1800. During his tenure, Jefferson authorized the purchase of the Louisiana Territory, dispatched Lewis and Clark westward in order to explore the remainder of the continent and repealed the Whisky Excise Tax. After Jefferson retired from public office in 1815, he often tended to the garden that he had cultivated on his Monticello estate. At the time, it was customary for wealthy farmers, including Jefferson, to distill the excess grains they harvested from their farms into spirits (George Washington was one of the country’s largest distillers of rye whiskey). As a result, each farmer’s spirits were unique and reflected the local terrior of their farm. Jefferson’s Ocean Aged At Sea Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey pays homage to Jefferson and the exquisite whiskey he distilled. Jefferson’s Ocean Aged At Sea Bourbon is matured in American oak casks for approximately seven to eight years on land, before the casks are placed on a ship and allowed to rest for another five to ten months at sea. At sea, the bourbon and oak casks are forced to mingle with each other as the ship rolls back and forth over the water. In addition, the temperature and barometric pressure fluctuations during the sea voyage cause the oak staves to expand and contract, and allow the bourbon to extract more of the tannins and flavor from the oak during its maturation. “This limited release whiskey aged beautifully,” says Trey Zoeller, Jefferson’s founder and master blender. As a result of this unique maturation process, Jefferson’s Ocean Bourbon has an aroma of vanilla, caramel and burnt matches. Thick notes of butterscotch, vanilla, brown sugar, and salted caramel dominate the palate, and lead to a finish accented by sweet hints of citrus.

Jefferson's Ocean Voyage 25  Wheated

Jefferson's Ocean Voyage 25 Wheated

$84.99

The nineteenth voyage of Jefferson’s special, sea-aged treasure. Jefferson’s was founded in 1997 by Trey Zoeller and his father Chet — a famed Bourbon historian who wrote the book on Kentucky distilleries. Yes, an actual book called “Bourbon in Kentucky: A History of Distilleries in Kentucky.” And eight generations ago, their great-great-grandmother was arrested for the “production and sales of spiritous liquors” in 1799. Which makes her the coolest ancestor ever! They acquire and produce a range of specialty Bourbons and Rye Whiskies. In 2007 Jefferson’s was sold to Castle Brands to build portfolio of premium spirits. If you’re a fan, you know that the Ocean Voyage series was launched in 2012. The idea is that instead of putting the casks of aging Bourbon in a stationary warehouse, they put them on a research ship plying equatorial waters. After years of near constant motion in warm, tropical seas, the Whiskey takes on the characteristics of a much older Spirit. And the using a wheat-forward mash bill (less rye grain) means a smoother, sweeter experience.
