    Re: jefferson 10 year rye

    At NY WhiskeyFest a few weeks ago, the woman at the Jefferson's table told me that the latest batch of Rye was not sourced from Canada, but was from Kentucky. I know that's only hearsay, but I thought it was interesting. The Rye tasted fantastic.

    I heard the same yesterday from a pretty reliable source and was actually kinda disappointed because I was hoping to score some cheap WhistlePig.

Perhaps the sale is to get ahead of the shift in source for the rye from Canada to KY though I am not sure why that would help. Maybe with a new source they are trying to move inventory.

    Re: jefferson 10 year rye

    Kentucky or Indiana? I mean, who except the former LDI would have so much aged rye lying around?

    I'm thrilled, either way. I'm really stoked for the change in distilleries for the Ritthenhouse rye, and now this is going to change, too. New options are fun!

    Lemme guess. Whistle pig out bid em on the remaining stocks. Whistlepig is expanding their product line with a higher proof offering at a really high price. Jefferson's is sent packing. Sad but possible

    Re: jefferson 10 year rye

    I heard that it was no longer Canadian the same time Unclebunk did. Somebody also said the label used to say Canada and now doesn't. If actually Kentucky, then it couldn't be LDI. 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.

    Wouldn't they require a CoLA for the source change? Oops, I see they did submit one - nevermind.

    They did, and surrendered the old label, if I'm reading it correctly.

    How do you look up CoLAs for various brands? Thanks.

    Go to the TTB website and you can search a few different ways. Keep in mind that not every label that gets approved actually sees the light of day.
