Kothe Fall Distilling Workshop 2008

Recommended Posts


Award winning handcrafted German engineered potstills for the production of high quality fruit and grain spirits, as well as bioethanol. “Kothe Destillationstechnik” uses patented technology to specially engineer each still with solid quality and energy saving compounds to meet the particular needs of each distiller.

We have put a lot of time and energy into compiling a program for future distillers and distillers with some experience. We are going to cover everything from fruit selection, mashing, and the actual distillation process to the legal aspects of starting a distillery in North America. Dr. Klaus Hagmann, one of the leading experts in the field and Ulrich Kothe, the founder of Kothe Destillationstechnik will also be giving insights into fine distilling.
