If provenance is part of the appeal of small-batch spirits, then Jefferson's Ocean Bourbon is as compelling as they come. Bred in Kentucky and sent to sea in barrels aboard a research vessel, the 88-proof liquor was subject to almost four years of temperature fluctuations and constant rocking, resulting in a briny complexity that rivals whiskeys aged five times as long. This rare bourbon (only 600 bottles are available) is the kind of booze that warrants a story before being tossed back.
