Corsair Centennial is a barley malt Whiskey that smells like roses, oranges, and ale.

Andrew Webber and Darek Bell own and run the Corsair Artisan Distilleries (there are two of them) located in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and Nashville, Tennessee. Friends since childhood, Andrew and Darek began as beer brewers out of their garage and later hit a snag while working on a prototype bio-diesel thing-a-nabob. Darek turned to Andrew and said something like, “You know, distilling Whiskey is a lot more fun than bio-diesel.” Bell had attended Bruichladdick Distilling Academy in Islay, Scotland, so soon after they opened up Corsair — a distillery dedicated to producing a range of small-batch spirits through relentless experimentation. And quite a range it is. They currently have seven “official” releases and no less than seventeen seasonal and experimental products.

Corsair Centennial gets its name from a brand of hops used is brewing craft beers — Centennial Hops. The spirit itself is actually traditional malted barley that is fermented and distilled in the traditional manner, with one exception. During the process they suspend those special hops in a vapor basket the same way you would infuse botanicals in Gin. So this is like a Whiskey-Gin with Centennial Hops as the only botanical. The result does NOT taste like beer at all — it is all Whiskey. But there is an added floral aroma of hops that is more on the nose than the palate. But it is a bang-on good idea and — since beer and Whiskey are cousins — it feels like it belongs.

An un-aged American Whisky is often called “white dog.”Sour Mash is the fermentation process by which a percentage of a previous fermentation is added to a new batch as a "starter" to get the fermentation going and maintain a level of consistency from batch to batch. A sweet mash means that only fresh yeast is added to a new batch to start fermentation.
Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 percent rye. The grain gives Rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavor. It was a big seller before Prohibition, and after decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. Fun fact: George Washington distilled Rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.
Moonshine Whiskey is distilled from a varied mix of corn and sugar and is aged in Mason jars and jugs for the length of time it takes the customers to get home.

Tennessee Whiskey closely parallels Bourbon, but final filtering through sugar-maple charcoal (called the Lincoln County Process) is what some producers say differentiates them. Tennessee Whiskey’s finish is sweeter and smoother than Bourbon.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
