Childhood friends Darek Bell and Andrew Webber began home brewing beer and wine in Darek and Amy Lee Bell’s garage. They hit a snag while working on a prototype bio-diesel plant, causing Andrew to remark that making whiskey would be much more satisfying. The idea stuck, and the two soon found themselves studying distilleries and spirits.
Soon after, Corsair Distillery was founded. Corsair’s spirits have been praised in publications like Food and Wine, Saveur, Imbibe, Whisky Magazine, Whisky Advocate, the Atlantic, Time Out New York, and Maxim.com. Corsair’s innovative and adventurous spirits have won over 150 medals at international spirits competitions.
At this location you will get to tour our distillery where we make our unique gins, rum, vodka and absinthe and are offered a tasting of these spirits in our gift-shop and tasting room.
