    Re: jefferson 10 year rye

    Chuck, maybe it's some of that hollow tree whisky you mentioned, you know, the one made by the elves.

    Re: jefferson 10 year rye

    On the website for the brand, there is wording that it is made with 10 year old North American straight rye whiskey. This could mean Canadian whisky, but maybe it means (I now think) a mingling of American and Canadian ryes.

    If it was all-U.S. origin, I wouldn't think they would use the term North American. So I think either it is all-Canadian in origin, all-Canadian but aged for a further time in the U.S., or a mingling of Canadian and U.S. If the latter, you wouldn't state I think that it is imported from Canada on the label, since not all of it is.

    The label does states 100% rye, which would incline me to the first possibility (all-Canadian), but it is not 100% clear IMO.

    Re: jefferson 10 year rye

    I just purchased a bottle from TPS and it had a small 'Made in Canada' label on it. I guess the omission was noted and CYA'ed. Same Canadian source, but it's bottled in Cleveland now.

    Maybe that explains it.

    I shall cling to the Elvish theory until irrefutably proven otherwise.

I don't think any of this is definitive, just odds and ends somebody heard, so maybe a little bit of information fueling a lot of speculation. Always stay skeptical.

    The thing about a brand like Jefferson is that what would be a drop in the bucket for, say, Rittenhouse, is a year's inventory for Jefferson, it's such a small brand. None of the distilleries sell bulk whiskey except when they do and even though rye is growing and rye supplies are generally tight, in any given season, somebody like Heaven Hill (or anybody) may need to make a small inventory adjustment, and that's all the Zoellers need for Jefferson's.
    So three different people found out by word of mouth that it's being now being sourced from KY instead of Canada. Hardly an unassailable fact, but consider the alternative: what motivation would they have to lie about it?

    Another thing I've noticed locally is that the price has dropped by almost $10 just about everywhere, from roughly $40 to $30. Does that reflect a new, cheaper source? I don't know, but it got me to pick up a bottle.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    Well, 'from' Kentucky doesn't mean the same as 'made' in Kentucky, but adspeak is a foreign language to me.

    Could be a price drop reflects bottles aging on the shelves rather than a new source.
