Event Details

Become a whiskey connoisseur with this two-day intermediate Whiskey Workshop examining everything whiskey! We’ll cover a wide variety of classifications – including Irish, Scotch, Canadian, American, and even new craft whiskeys made from non-traditional grains – detailing the individual distillate components and production processes for each, standards of identity, and relationship to other whiskeys.

Students will also receive an in-depth understanding of whiskey production, including malting, smoking, mashing, fermenting, traditional and alternative aging techniques, and making cuts. Hands-on, small-scale product development with table-top distillation allows participants to experiment further with these processes before moving onto the larger equipment in our distillery. Finally, we’ll return to our roots by examining the history of whiskey, before discussing the best ways to guide consumers through an informative and engaging sensory evaluation of this versatile spirit.
