About Virgil Kaine Robber Baron Rye Whiskey

Virgil Kaine was founded by successful chef duo David Szlam and Ryan Meany in 2013. Szlam trained under award-winning Chef Daniel Humm now at Eleven Madison Park, while Meany helped launch the Charleston's Husk restaurant.

Rewriting whiskey history one sip at a time. Putting taste above all else, this bold flavored, yet always inviting creation has the spice of a high-rye mash bill with a dash of sweetness. Built on rich layers of spices and citrus, it’s mellow, smooth and well balanced. It’ll stand its ground mixed in craft cocktails and dyed-in-the-wool rye drinkers love it straight up. Finished with notes of sherry and port casks.

About Virgil Kaine

Virgil Kaine was founded by David Szlam and Ryan Meany, who decided to channel their culinary expertise into creating high-quality whiskey. Szlam got a degree at the California Culinary Academy's Le Cordon Bleau Culinary Program, working with several world-class chefs afterwards, which eventually led to him opening his own restaurant, Cordavi, in Charleston, South Carolina. The restaurant was named one of 20 best new restaurants by Esquire in 2006.

Szlam continued to challenge himself, leading to the creation of Virgil Kaine Ginger Infused Bourbon in 2011 and a partnership with another chef in 2013 in order to expand the new brand. This is where Ryan Meany comes in. With a bachelor's degree in marketing and a culinary arts degree from the Johnson & Wales University as well as plenty of culinary experience ― himself working with renowned chefs and opening the Burger Babies establishment as well ― the pair was a perfect match with a shared love of whiskey and common vision.

Legend has it that Virgil Kaine was a railway conductor during the Civil War era who built a still inside his train car, bootlegging at night. Once he was caught and shot, he figured out a way to take the edge off bourbon ― with a ginger infusion. While that's where the brand started out, Szlam and Meany have been channeling their expertise into several expressions, including ones involving infusion and maceration.

About Rye

As American as the bald eagle, rye whiskey was first brewed in the American Northeast in the 1600s. Even George Washington distilled it after leaving the Oval Office, so there’s no way of denying its origin.
It’s distinguished from bourbon for its original and unique spicy notes.


By law, rye whiskey must be made from at least 51% rye grain, aged in new and charred oak barrels for at least two years, and bottled at no more than 62,5% ABV.
