Twice-aged Bourbon mash bill libation
 
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.
 
Roundhouse Double Barrel Whisky is a limited release of innovation and experimentation. Like a roundhouse of a train yard lets your locomotive choose a new path, this enlightening Whiskey offers new flavor landscapes. When new American oak barrels were in short supply in 2014, the Virgin Kaine crew found casks that once held Bourbon. We know, an odd choice for an American Spirit, but with these cooks, we ain’t in Kansas anymore. When this traditional Bourbon mash bill potion spent a few years in those casks, new charred oak barrels became available. Roundhouse went through a second finishing and came out unmistakably “Kainesque” – flavorful and layered.

An un-aged American Whisky is often called “white dog.”Sour Mash is the fermentation process by which a percentage of a previous fermentation is added to a new batch as a "starter" to get the fermentation going and maintain a level of consistency from batch to batch. A sweet mash means that only fresh yeast is added to a new batch to start fermentation.
Moonshine Whiskey is distilled from a varied mix of corn and sugar and is aged in Mason jars and jugs for the length of time it takes the customers to get home.

Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 percent rye. The grain gives Rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavor. It was a big seller before Prohibition, and after decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. Fun fact: George Washington distilled Rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Corn Whiskey is a commercial product that must contain at least 80% corn, be distilled at less than 80% ABV (160 proof), and, if wood-aged, may be aged in either used or new un-charred barrels.
