DAREK BELL - OWNER / DISTILLER

Darek was trained at the Siebel Brewing Institute and is a graduate of the Bruichladdich Distilling Academy in Islay, Scotland.

His focus is on new recipes for spirits using alternative grains, unconventional smoked grains, and unusual botanicals.
ANDREW WEBBER, MBA - PRESIDENT / DISTILLER
Corsair co-founder Andrew Webber wears many hats: mad scientist, bean counter, lecturer, janitor. Serving as head distiller and President, Andrew works on prototyping experimental spirits with Darek Bell and runs Corsair’s daily operations. He can also be found on the road giving talks and pouring Corsair. Andrew’s signature is using unusual ingredients in traditional distillations to yield novel, big, aggressive flavors in Corsair’s spirits. Born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, Andrew spent time in Boston and Houston studying and working on biological systems. On returning to Nashville, he helped build a series of technology startups.
