"The distillery splits malted barley into three batches, each of which gets a different type of smoke peat, cherry wood or beechwood. Then it's all pot distilled together, in small batches, and aged in new American oak barrels to mellow out the fire. It has the great rich, big barrel notes of wood and vanilla, but with a beautiful smokiness riding on top."-Tasting notes
“Childhood friends, Darek Bell and Andrew Webber, began homebrewing beer and wine in Darek and Amy Lee Bell’s garage. They hit a snag while working on a prototype bio-diesel plant, causing Andrew to remark that making whiskey would be much more satisfying. The idea stuck, and the two soon found themselves studying distilleries and spirits.
Soon after, in 2008, Corsair Distillery was founded in Bowling Green, KY. By 2010, Corsair set its marks where it all started, becoming the first craft distillery in Nashville since prohibition. Corsair’s spirits have been praised in publications like Food and Wine, Saveur, Imbibe, Whisky Magazine, Whisky Advocate, the Atlantic, Time Out New York, and Maxim.com. Corsair’s innovative and adventurous spirits have won over 800 medals at national and international spirits competitions.”-Distillery Notes
