Inspired by pumpkin ales, Corsair Pumpkin Spice Moonshine is created by distilling malted barley and wheat in order to make a sweet malt whiskey. The company's 50-gallon, four-plate hybrid pot still gives them unique flexibility and control over the distillation process. After the grains have been distilled, fresh ginger, cloves, allspice, ground cinnamon and five pounds of fresh pumpkin are all added into the still's vapor basket, and then the whiskey is distilled a second time. As a result, the whiskey is infused with a unique taste — flavors of pie crust and malt are followed by the full, sweet notes of cinnamon and pumpkin.
Corsair's small operation has no mechanized components — each bottle is filled, labeled and then boxed by hand. "We make less in a year than a big distillery spills in a day," says Clay Smith, Corsair's distillery manager.
