Make Your Own Spirits at the Ultimate Hands-on Workshop in Seattle, WA (3 New Sessions)


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

Rockwell Rutter here from Distillery University; I wanted to let everyone know about three new 3-day Workshops to be held this fall at 3 Howls Distillery in Seattle, WA

Session 1: January 31-February 2;

Session 2: March 13-15;

Session 3: April 24-26

These Workshops allow you to actually take control of a professional-grade reflux still and produce your own batch of spirits under the supervision of award-winning distillers. We'll also have lots of classroom time to learn from various experts and get all your questions answered. All students also receive a FREE Lifetime Membership to our online classes (currently at over 50 hours of content and a $499 value).

If you're looking to get ACTUAL hands-on experience, these are the Workshops for you. We'll have a mash already made up for you, so all you have to focus on is getting your spirits to come out just right.

After your spirits run is complete, you'll then be shown how to blend with distilled water in order to get the strength and flavor profile you're looking for. From there, you'll bottle your finished spirit and take it home with you! We'll also run the bottling line and a few other hands-on activities.

Topics to be covered in the hands-on portion of the class are:

Grain choice
Choosing the base product
Yeast choice
Vessel choice
Making the cuts
Temperature choice
Equipment design/performance
Still performance
