Jefferson’s Bourbon tells on about a first-of-its-kind partnership in the world of whiskey between Shark Tank’s Barbara Corcoran and Jefferson’s Bourbon co-founder Trey Zoeller.

Together, they’re launching the Marian McLain Entrepreneurial Fund, honoring the pioneering spirit of Zoeller’s 8th-generation grandmother, Marian McLain.

Corcoran and Marian both embraced risks to achieve their dreams. The shared pioneering spirit of these two is what led Zoeller and Corcoran to find each other and support aspiring entrepreneurs through the Marian McLain Entrepreneurial Fund.

To celebrate this venture, a contest is being launched to support small businesses and Jefferson’s Bourbon is being released called the “Marian McLain Bourbon,” a limited edition Bourbon with a unique blend of five aged whiskeys.

All the details on this rare Bourbon release and how to enter the contest are below.

The Limited Edition Marian McLain Bourbon Whiskey

Marin McLain Bourbon, co-created by Trey Zoeller and Barbara Corcoran.

The blend consists of the following:

– 14-Year-Old Tennessee Straight Bourbon Whiskey (21%)

– 11-Year-Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (40%)

– Wheated Double-Barrel (14%)

– Rum Cask Finish (17%)

– 8-Year-Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (8%).

Jefferson tells that the final blend represents Marian McLain’s five children and delivers a complex, intense flavor with notes of vanilla, caramel, pepper, cinnamon, red fruit, and brown sugar.

Bottled at 51% ABV (102 PROOF), it will be available nationwide in April 2023 for $300 per 750ml bottle.

How To Enter the Marian McLain Entrepreneurial Fund Contest

The Marian McLain Entrepreneurial Fund invites small business hopefuls to submit a short video showcasing their innovative ideas for the contest.

The grand prize winner, chosen by Corcoran and Zoeller, will receive $20,000, a congratulatory call from Corcoran, and a “shop talk” interview with Trey.

Five runners-up will win $1,000 awards. Submissions are open from April 11, 2023, until May 7, 2023.
