It’s a high-Rye Moonshine aged and dressed up in a tuxedo.

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 Bruichladdich 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 Ryemageddon is a clever name, but we can think of a better one. How about “Franken-Rye” instead? That because this is high-Rye Whiskey monster made from two types of Rye grain bolted together. It uses traditional malted Rye spirits as the base and adds a bit of “chocolate Rye” to build body and depth of flavor. Chocolate Rye is a popular, un-malted brewer’s Rye that has been dark-roasted like espresso beans. Then the distillate is placed in relatively tiny, fifteen gallon charred oak casks to age a bit (smaller casks age spirits faster) and bottled at a proper 46% ABV.

Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
Corsair now operates three distilleries after adding a second Nashville location in 2015.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
