This is, to Corsair’s knowledge, the first ever whiskey derived from quinoa – although a handful of additional distillers have followed suit. In actuality, it tastes like, well, quinoa – capturing the grain’s earthy flavors and a certain grassy dryness, like some pastoral windblown field. Not surprising to this San Franciscan, the quinoa whiskey reportedly sells well in California.

Roasted nuts, agave, earthiness, vanilla, and caramel on the nose. Red quinoa, cocoa, nut oil, moss, and apple on the palate. Cedar, cocoa, and burnt caramel on the finish. Very out there and interesting
