Corsair Barrel-Aged Gin
Corsair has two distilleries, in Nashville and Bowling Green. They distill gin, absinthe, and other small batch spirits, but the most interesting is their barrel-aged gin. Normally a clear spirit, this gin is honey-colored, and has a little more body, making for a more flavorful martini.
The B&E stands for breaking and entering because these guys insist that their bourbon is "stolen from barrels" in Kentucky, then brought to California to be bottled. The result? a bourbon that's been yuppified -- smoother, with a little less sweetness. We're thinking it would go great in our next mint julep.
Novo Fogo Barrel-Aged Cachaca
Straight from the rainforests of Brazil, this organic cachaca is aged two years in bourbon casks before it's bottled. The result is a cachaca that you can sip straight without that jet fuel burn that some clear cachacas can have.
