THL: What is it?
Corsair Pumpkin Spice Moonshine was inspired by the flavors of pumpkin ales. This seasonal spirit will keep you warm all winter long, if the bottle lasts that long.
THL: Why should you try it?
Many flavored spirits are a sugary mess of imitation flavors that taste like a pale shadow of the fruit, spice, grain, or herbs they are trying to represent. Corsair will have none of this, insisting on only using fresh all-natural ingredients. They load their pot still’s vapor basket with ginger, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, and pumpkin. They then distill a second time to bind all of the flavors in a lightly spiced and delicate flavor.
THL: Who makes it?
Corsair Artisan Distillery has locations in Bowling Green, KY and Nashville, TN. They currently offer Vanilla Bean Vodka, Red Absinthe, Spiced Rum, and Wry Moon Unaged Rye Whiskey. At any give time, you might find a new seasonal/experimental spirit coming out of their stills. Among their selections are Rasputin Hopped Whiskey, 100% Aged Rye, Corsair Gin, Triple Smoke Single Malt Whiskey and Barrel Aged Gin.
THL: What does it taste like?
Just like pumpkin pie minus all of the calories. The spiced moonshine has flavors of vanilla, very mild pumpkin, sweet malt, and cinnamon.
THL: How should you drink it?
Next time you are throwing a fall party, try mixing up a batch of Pumpkin Spice Punch.
