Hello everyone from Distillery University! We've been having a lot of success with our 3 and 5-day hands-on Workshops, so we've decided to double-down and start offering spirit-specific events, as well. Our first spirit Workshop is the Ultimate Gin Workshop, coming to Spokane, WA on January 14th and 15th, 2017. Students will learn everything there is to know about gin formulation, distillation, blending, etc. from award-winning distiller Todd Buckley. His gin was rated a 94 in 2014 by the Beverage Testing Institute, beating out big brands like Beefeater, Tanqueray and Bombay Sapphire (link). We'll also be covering botanical selection, and we'll have a collection of various botanical samples on hand to experience. These come courtesy of Morning Myst Botanics. We'll also be hearing from Paul Ziegman, owner and Master Distiller at Tinbender Craft Distillery. As someone who personally built every piece of equipment in his distillery, he'll be covering equipment construction, design, layout and other considerations. Later on in the evening we'll adjourn to a local watering hole for a gin-focused sensory experience and tasting event. We'll sample 7 different gins and Todd will walk us through the different essences and botanicals we can perceive. The next day will consist of a half-day back in the classroom, then a trip out to Palouse Pint malthouse. Master Maltster Joel Williamson will give us a tour and allow us to sample his various types of malt. All students will receive a free Lifetime membership to Distillery University, where you can learn from our existing 46 hours of video coursework, as well as the footage from all future Workshops. Early registration ends soon and space is limited, so get in while you can to reserve a space.
