Character Goatson
Kentucky Whiskey by a mad scientists trained in Islay.
 
Innovation comes from people who dare to take a different path, learn from the best and use their knowledge to shake it up, as our queen, Mrs. Taylor, likes to say. Darek Bell, dapper artisanal distiller from Kentucky, earned his chops at the Bruichladdich Distilling Academy in Islay, Scotland and his holy mission is to create Whiskey that’s better and different. He opened shop in 2009 with his childhood pal Andrew Webber and started handcrafting small-batch, ultra-premium hooch that won a ton of awards since then.
 
Corsair’s Wildfire is the distillery’s first grain-to-grass Whiskey. Their barley was grown, malted and smoked at the Bell’s Bend farm in Tennessee. And when it was smoked, hickory wood was used, which gives the grain (and Whiskey) the unique and smooth BBQ character with notes of smoke, caramel and butterscotch. This multiple-award cowboy brings the atmosphere of summer and socializing in the backyard to your home bar, and it’s both a fine sipper, or a delicious component in a cocktail. Did anyone say smoky Old Fashioned?

About the Flavor Spiral
What does Corsair Wildfire taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Corsair Wildfire and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

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.
Corn Whiskey is a commercial product that must contain at least 80% corn, be distilled at less than 80% ABV (160 proof), and, if wood-aged, may be aged in either used or new un-charred barrels.
George Washington was a man of many talents being both a military braniac and the First President of the United States. Interestingly, he also became the largest Whiskey producer in the United States after leaving the politics.
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.
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.
Corsair now operates three distilleries after adding a second Nashville location in 2015.
