Frequently Asked Questions
Do you offer online courses?
At this time, we do not offer online classes as our courses are designed with hands-on learning experiences. It is something we are looking into for the near future.
We do offer a variety of educational opportunities for enthusiasts and distillers alike, and we would be happy to send you notifications of upcoming classes and events. You can find more information about our upcoming classes here.
Are you open to the public for tours?
As an educational institution, we are not open to the public for tours/visits. However, we do offer a variety of educational opportunities for enthusiasts and distillers alike, and we would be happy to send you notifications of upcoming classes and events.
Are there any prerequisites to take the courses?
There are no prerequisite requirements for most of our courses. For our 6-Day Distiller Course, we will start at square one, lay a foundation of basic terms and the general process, answer your questions, then ramp up from there. It would not hurt to familiarize yourself with the basic science of distilling. This article is super basic and somewhat humorous. There are also some great books out there, but honestly, you can come as you are and be just fine. Other than that, perhaps jot down some questions you want to ask while you are here.
Do you offer financial aid?
At this time, we do not have a work study program in place for potential students. We do understand that starting up a distillery can be both daunting and expensive, and we are researching multiple ways to help students fund their tuition fees. Some people have found, upon investigating in their own community, some local economic development money available for such ventures in their specific locale. If you would like to make special payment arrangements (wire transfer, corporate check, or downpayment/payment schedule) please contact the Registrar before registering for class.
Do you offer private classes?
Certainly! We can offer custom distilling and training courses for groups up to 50. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call Christin Head at (502) 301-8139 so we can go over the specific details of your private class.
Do you sell moonshine?
We do not sell moonshine or any other products. Rather, we work with entrepreneurs and beverage companies to develop custom beverage formulations for their brands. If you have any questions or if you would like more information about product development, you can contact Sara Bowman at (502) 301-8142 or email@example.com.
