WHAT IS QUINOA WHISKEY?
Traditionally whiskey is a grain spirit, with federal law in the United States dictating it be manufactured from four crops; corn, wheat, rye and barley
However Quinoa Whiskey is manufactured from a combination of red and white quinoa grains and malted barley
Corsair Quinoa Whiskey, manufactured in Nashville, Tennessee, contains a grain profile of 20 percent quinoa and 80 percent malted barley
It is understood to have a nutty flavor that sets it apart from other, more traditional whiskey brands
Corsair’s loose definition of grains initially led to the US federal government failing to acknowledge the product as a whiskey
This changed in December 2018, when the Treasury Department’s Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau made the decision to include quinoa as a whiskey grain
‘It’s this great quinoa whiskey from this distillery in Tennessee with maple syrup and lemon juice. It’s just heaven. I would have two of those every night of quarantine.’
Gwyneth specified she was ‘not, like, black-out’ drunk, but she admitted she still craves a cigarette when drinking.
‘I miss it,’ she added. In the past, Paltrow had been known to indulge in just one cigarette a week amid all of her healthy living practices, in a show of moderation.
