Fresh Rye expression designed by chefs.
 
Based in the Holy City of Charleston, South Carolina, the Virgil Kaine distillery has a holy mission: create the best damn Whiskey around. Now, that’s a pretty high calling, but the founders, David Szlam and Ryan Meany, come from the culinary world. Their mad skills in finding the superb flavor are quite useful when your objective is concocting perfection. The chef mates blended, tinkered and experimented until they came up with explosive ideas that prove once again that amazing Spirits don’t need centuries of tradition and generations of secret recipes – what you need is guts and imagination.
 
One of the haute cuisine rebels in the world of Whiskey is the Robber Barron Rye Whiskey. Named after cutthroat businessmen of the Steam Era, it’s an expression that bets it all on flavor. This No Age Statement Whiskey is bold and spicy with a balancing dash of sweetness. Rich layers of spices and citrus will rewrite what Whiskey is all about – either neat or in a chic cocktail. Make a Queen of Hearts with it, if you want to wow your crowd.

A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
