Corsair Artisan Distillery

Childhood friends Darek Bell and Andrew Webber started homebrewing beer and wine in Darek's garage. While working on a tricky prototype for a bio-diesel plant, Andrew joked that distilling whiskey would be way more satisfying. Needless to say, the idea stuck.

The two studied distilling and spirits, and soon after founded Corsair in Nashville, with a second distillery in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

These trend-bucking but also trend-embracing bottles are definitely more experimental than traditional, from their Reservoir Dogs-inspired logo to their innovative use of rare grains (quinoa whiskey!) to their creative use of smoke.
