The Charming Darek Bell of Corsair

Seven of the most¬†innovative¬†craft distillers in the country recently gathered at Astor Center to showcase their unique products. We sat down with the charming Darek Bell, Co-Founder of Corsair, to learn a little more about his “alt whiskies”, the process of working with quinoa, and his love of puppies.

 

Corsair Triple Smoked Whiskey
The American maverick spirit is alive and well with new micro-distillers experimenting with different sizes of wood, types of wood, time spent in the wood and with this bottling, different types of smoke used on the barley. Cherry wood, peat and beech wood have been utilized to smoke the barley that has then been pot-distilled creating a single malt that is rich, sweet and smoky.
