About Corsair Distillery
Corsair Distillery only opened in 2010 and is already receiving this recognition. Owner and founder Darek Bell is being considered a leader in the craft spirits market. The company produces hand-crafted, small-batch spirits.
The team creates whiskeys from grains like buckwheat, quinoa, amaranth and hopped whiskeys distilled from refined mashes normally brewed into craft beer. Basically, Bell gave an American nod to the Scottish heritage of smoked peat whiskeys by smoking native woods like white oak, mesquite and hickory.
What is great about Corsair is that they believe in an open source philosophy which means recipes are right online, in teaching classes and in books. Rather than leaving it a mystery for guests, you can see exactly what they are doing and how.

There are locations in Nashville and Bowling Green, Kentucky. The Nashville location is a 30,000 square foot facility located in the Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood that is going to open in the late spring. The spirits are found in 30 states nationally and even in 7 international countries already.
