Amazing? Yes! If you like ginger. This is my and my husband's favorite, not overly, sickeningly sweet, just enough, with that kick. If in stock, get it (save one for me.)
Virgil Kaine Ginger Infused Bourbon
Bourbon /40% ABV / South Carolina, United States
- South Carolina, United States
Our original spirit has its own original spirit. This small batch creation puts a fresh twist on classic Southern bourbon. Starting with our full-bodied Lowcountry libation, we add a touch of heirloom ginger harvested just thirty miles from where it’s bottled. A single sip reveals a hint of vanilla with an ultra-smooth, well-balanced taste and sweet finish only found south of the Mason-Dixon Line.View all products by Virgil KaineCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
