Virgil Kaine – An exotic concoction of ginger and bourbon


If the idea of having a glass of ginger infused bourbon sounds highly appealing, Virgil Kaine is the thing for you! Ginger and bourbon blend together so fluently in Virgil Kaine that their ale ends up being a classic two-ingredient cocktail.  It is made using “young” bourbon collected from a mash of 60% corn, 36% rye and 4% malted barley. Infused with rich yellow Hawaiian ginger, it is then bottled without any chill-filtering. It’s pretty astonishing that Virgil Kaine avoided the severity contained in so many other young whiskies, making its rich taste and exotic flavor truly one of a kind.


Virgil Kaine-ginger infused bourbon was founded by two highly proficient chefs, David Szlam and Ryan Meany. David and Ryan wanted to use their gastronomic know-how to make great tasting whisky, which ended up being the primary motivation behind Virgil Kaine’s creation. They’ve been called innovators, whiskey wizards, even obsessive flavourists and whiskey lovers on a mission to create bold and unique spirits that put flavor first. With Virgil Kaine, they were able to achieve this goal as evident from it being named as the “Distinguished Platinum Winner” at the 2013 Sip Awards.


So, if you are one of those who would love to fill their glass with this bourbon, here’s a heads-up for you! In Virgil Kaine whiskies, neither Bourbon nor the Rye contains any additives whatsoever.  In other words, there’s no masking. As far as availability goes, Virgil Kaine is now available in South Carolina, Georgia and New York City, and is in the middle of initiation in North Carolina and Tennessee. For other states in the US, it could be available online depending on whether your state allows shipping.
