Cigar & Whiskey Pairing presented by Battleground South Cigar Lounge & Corsair Distillery
City Winery
Fri, Jul 12 7:00 pm


There’s something magical about enjoying a glass of whiskey and a cigar. Maybe it’s the intermingling of flavors and aromas, or perhaps it’s the combination of the two that allows time to slow down. Either way, we love it at City Winery. Join us for an evening of interesting whiskeys from Nashville’s own Corsair Distillery and a cigar from Battleground South.  Beverage Director Evan Danielson will also be mixing up classic Manhattans, Old Fashioneds, and other whiskey cocktails for additional purchase. About Battleground South: Battleground South provides a sanctuary in which to create memorable experiences – an elegant domain, where the noble pastime of smoking a cigar and sipping on bourbon creates a lifetime bond among friends. Founders, Julian and Megan Griffin, created Battleground South for those looking to slow down a little and enjoy the things we take for granted. Our Columbia, Tennessee location, at the entrance of the new Columbia Arts District, is an extension of our dream to create an environment of “Sophisticated Relaxation.”  About Corsair Distillery: Childhood friends, Darek Bell, and Andrew Webber began homebrewing beer and wine in Darek and Amy Lee Bell’s garage. They hit a snag while working on a prototype bio-diesel plant, causing Andrew to remark that making whiskey would be much more satisfying. The idea stuck, and the two soon found themselves studying distilleries and spirits. Soon after, in 2008, Corsair Distillery was founded in Bowling Green, KY. By 2010, Corsair set its marks where it all started, becoming the first craft distillery in Nashville since prohibition. Corsair’s spirits have been praised in publications like Food and Wine, Saveur, Imbibe, Whisky Magazine, Whisky Advocate, the Atlantic, Time Out New York, and Maxim.com. Corsair’s innovative and adventurous spirits have won over 800 medals at national and international spirits competitions. Included in this event is a special cigar from Julian Pierre-Griffin of Battleground South, a selection of three 1 oz pours of Corsair whiskeys, and light appetizers.
