As Nashville has grown, Corsair has grown with it. With two Nashville natives at the head of the business, Corsair has expanded greatly since its arrival in 2010. In January 2016, Corsair opened its doors to a second Nashville location, the WeHo Headquarters. Not only did this move create office spaces and more barrel storage, but it allowed for the creation of craft whiskey on a higher production scale. This gave Corsair the opportunity to produce more small batch craft beers at, what is now called, the Marathon Village Brewstillery.
Now, not only can you get craft spirits from Corsair, but also craft beers. Utilizing local farms and Corsair’s local malthouse and smokehouse, we strive to put “Nashville in a bottle”. And as tourism booms and more and more people are moving into Nashville, we only continue to grow around the city we love. To get a closer look at what we are doing here at Corsair, stop by one of our locations for a tour. Handcrafted small batch ultra premium American Booze – Find your Spirit!
