  1. For the first time ever, Distillery University is going on the road! This April we hope you'll join us at the award-winning 3 Howls Distillery in Seattle, WA for three days of distilling education and fun. https://distilleryuniversity.com/hands-on-workshop/ Director of Education Todd Buckley is well-known for the award-winning gin he made at the Belletown Distillery. In 2014, his hand-crafted spirit scored a 94 from the Beverage Tasting Institute, beating out such notable gins as Beefeater, Tanqueray and Bombay Sapphire. He'll be sharing his experiential secrets as well as his technical knowledge in this 3-day Workshop that is not to be missed. The entire Workshop will be held at the 3 Howls Distillery in Downtown Seattle, WA. Students will get a chance to learn directly from Will Maschmeier, the distillery's founder and an award-winning distilling expert. For a detailed look at the topics we'll be covering, please visit our website. Students will have several out of class experiences to take advantage of, including: Sensory evaluations of 7 spirits at a nearby restaurant After hours drinks and networking at local watering holes Our camera crew will also be on-site to capture the entire Workshop on film. Later on, this footage will be edited together and posted online at DistilleryUniversity.com. All Workshop attendees will be given a Lifetime Access pass (a $499 value!) to the site, so you'll be able to refer back to every part of the 3-day Workshop whenever you need to, as well as the 47 hours of current footage from other Workshops. All attendees will also be given a Certificate of Membership to Distillery University, suitable for framing. Space is limited, so sign up today. You'll find hotel information on our website (including discounts).

  2. Hi everyone! Rockwell Rutter from Distillery University here. I wanted to give everyone an update on our Hands-on Workshop coming June 20-24 in Spokane, WA. The March Workshop was an absolute success; we had folks come in from all 4 corners of the country to participate in the 5-day event and everyone left with a smile and new energy for their distillery project. In addition to the classwork and the actual hands-on learning at Tinbender Craft Distillery, we also organized a few after-hours events for people to enjoy. We toured Spokane Industries (tank manufacturer) and held several group dinners and tasting events at local bars and restaurants. There were also a few surprise gifts for everyone (that I won't reveal here), except for one. In addition to the recorded footage of the entire Workshop now available through their account on DistilleryUniversity.com, and the accompanying Powerpoint presentations, attendees were also gifted an EXTENSIVE Business Plan Formulation tool. This software tool will help them with forecasting, expense planning, batch costing, and a host of other business plan requirements as they move closer to starting their distilleries. Now that the Workshop is over, we're gearing up for the next one this June. The Early Registration discount ends on 5/22, so don't miss your chance to save $500. Every registration comes with a free Lifetime Access membership to the online content, so you'll have the benefit viewing the Workshop you attended, as well as the 37 hours of other content that's currently available. We'd love to have you join us next month. Here's a link to learn more: https://distilleryuniversity.com/hands-on-workshop/. And here's a link to a short (one-minute) video showcasing some of the actual hands-on learning: https://vimeo.com/163875286 Here's what a few attendees had to say: “I congratulate the team at Distilling University for the training workshop they have organized. The workshop included a good mix of seminar and on-site education, highlighted by our visit of an equipment manufacturer and local distillery. Furthermore, I made great friends and professional contacts in the group with which i am still keeping in touch. Thank you to Rockwell, Dan and Todd. Cheers!" - E. Garcia. "Thank you very much for an excellent week of learning. It was well worth the effort. The Workshop paid for itself before the first break on day one." - J. Calderon. "So much practical experience and knowledge. Learning facts is fun, but learning why they're important and how to use them is awesome." - A. Lyon Cheers!

  3. Hi guys, Rockwell here from Distillery University. I just wanted to let everyone know we're holding a brand-new 5-day Hands-on Workshop this March in Spokane, WA. Early registration discounts are valid until 2/21, so check out the site and see what you think. Our Workshop will give you actual hands-on experience, as we'll be heading over to Tinbender Craft Distillery where you'll have the chance to make your own mash and do a spirits run on a small pot still. You even get to take home what you make. There will also be various experts presenting on topics like legal compliance, distillery operations, equipment considerations, etc. The best part is, all attendees will automatically receive a Lifetime Access membership to DistilleryUniversity.com, so you can refer back to everything you learned at the Workshop, plus all the rest of the current and future content on the site. If anyone has any questions, you can reply to this thread or email me directly at rockwell@distilleryuniversity.com. Thanks! https://distilleryuniversity.com/hands-on-workshop/ Rockwell Rutter
