  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. 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
  6. Hi everyone ! I'm looking for some professionnal advice on proofing liqueurs. We have a couple of interesting ideas but we lack some knowledge about proofing sweet spirits. I read other posts but to be honest I don't feel I know everything I should to commercialize a liqueur right now. We need to be pretty accurate when it come to alc. % etc. .. I'm in Eastern Canada so I would be please if someone in the Northeast would accept to receive me at their distillery to exchange on our practices and ideas ! Thanks guys Jean-Philippe
