This course starts by outlining the three distinct stages of distilled spirits production (production of a fermented extract, distillation and downstream modifications), using whiskey, gin, tequila and brandy as examples.
The workshop is online and live starting at 8:00 am.
So, rather than leaving your friends and family to travel to Corvallis, OR, you will be able to attend live where ever you happen to be! Just like a traditional in-person even, you will be able to ask questions and interact directly with your instructor Paul Hughes.
A wide range of business plans and successful distilling models are available to a new distiller, from third-party manufacturing to complete production of fermented alcohol and distillation.
The course finishes with a step-by-step discussion of the licensing requirements, both federal (TTB) and state (Oregon, OLCC). As part of the course manual, a paper explaining these licensing requirements is included.
In short, you will learn how to turn an interest into an enjoyable and rewarding career
