Distilling Classes

Our distilling classes are designed to provide a foundation to individuals wanting to learn about distilling and the craft industry.  As operators of a “grain-to-the-glass” distillery, we are able to provide the complete experience for prospective distillers.

Now is your chance to learn the art of distilling spirits at our Distilling School! Be sure to wear clothes that can get dirty. You may take notes and pictures. Lunch will be provided.
