Our next scheduled "Camp Distillery" will be held on Monday, April 8th, 2013 at MB Roland Distillery in Pembroke, KY. Our last class consisted of 10 participants from 4 different states, all giving us very positive feedback on their experience. This is a highly-involved 1-day course, specifically geared towards those that can't get away for a multiple day class/workshop. The course begins at 6:15am and is complete by 5pm (CST). We cover the entire production process from mashing to distillation, regulatory matters, and some very specific business-related matters to include lessons we've learned on the business side, gift shop/tasting room considerations & procedures, marketing/product development, and planning considerations for setup. For those that are on a very fixed budget, we are probably the best example of how to get into this business without a huge amount of cash. We started with one full-time employee three years ago and have grown to 4 full-time + multiple part-timers and are on track to continue this growth.

Also, being that we're centrally located in the country, we're within driving distance for many. For those that may be interested in visiting other craft distilleries, we're on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail Craft Tour and within driving distance of multiple tour-friendly facilities (http://www.kybourbon...rail_craft_tour for more info) in Kentucky and Tennessee. If you need lodging, there are multiple, newly-built hotels less than 5 miles from the distillery. If you want to fly in, Nashville, TN is an efficient 55-min drive via I-24.

Cost per person is $350 before March 1st, $400 after, group discounts are available. Complete print-outs of the day's curriculum, additional hardcopy resources, morning refreshments (coffee and donuts), and lunch are all included. We do expect this class to be completely full based on current interest. Call us at 270-640-7744 or e-mail us at info@mbrdistillery.com for more information.
