Jefferson’s Bourbon Barrel Finished Manhattan Cocktail is now available in Australia from #1 online liquor store www.mybottleshop.com.au.
The Jefferson Manhattan has been crafted in conjunction with the editors of Esquire. The new cocktail was conceptualised in 2013 by Esquire’s Editor-in-Chief David Granger and Jefferson’s Bourbon founder Trey Zoeller, in an effort to provide bourbon enthusiasts with a barrel-finished bottled cocktail that enhances the experience of enjoying a classic.
This collaboration between Jefferson’s Bourbon and Esquire magazine — complete with silkscreened signatures from Trey Zoeller and David Granger certianly has upscale aspirations. From the dark glass bottle to the wood stopper to the metal band around the neck, this is a drink that’s designed to look upscale and exclusive. It certainly is beautiful packaging…
So what is in the Jefferson’s Bourbon Barrel Finished Manhattan? Jefferson’s Bourbon, of course, plus dry and sweet vermouth (making it a Perfect Manhattan) and barrel-aged bitters. The resulting concoction is barrel aged for 90 days before bottling. (This reportedly took two years of experimentation to get right).
