Event Details

This two-day intermediate Whiskey Workshop examines a selection of whisk(e)y classifications including Irish, Scotch, Canadian, American whiskeys, and new craft whiskies that feature non-traditional grains. For each category, instruction includes thorough analysis of the individual components of the distillate and production process, standards of identity, and the product’s relationship to other whiskeys. Instruction is designed to provide an in-depth understanding and practice of whisk(e)y production, including malting, smoking, mashing, fermenting, and making cuts. Small-scale product development with table-top distillation allows participants to experiment with the process before moving on to the larger equipment in the distillery. Traditional and alternative aging techniques are also covered.

The Whiskey Workshop class size will be limited to 15 attendees to ensure ample opportunity for hands-on learning.
