Corsair crafts one of the remaining Gins produced in the traditional way; using a Gin-head, resting their signature vapor basket Gin in charred oak barrels previously used to age their spiced Rum. This “Gin head” style technique allows the flavors and essential oils of the organic botanicals to be gently extracted, yielding a less bitter Spirit than maceration resulting in a more aromatic, clean-tasting Gin, highlighting the flavors of the botanicals.
Corsair is an award winning distillery, receiving numerous awards since its opening in 2009. And their small batch, Gin-head style Gin has followed suit, winning Golds at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, the World Beverage Competition, and the International Review of Spirits Awards BTI.
The nose offers up flavors of citrus and a delicate floral aroma. The palate again comes up slightly floral with coriander showing nicely with a touch of pepper. This gin stays true to the American style - light, refreshing, citrusy and highly mixable.
