Moonshine University has joined forces with The Rum University to offer the most comprehensive rum training in the world, taught by none other than Luis and Margaret Ayala, Co-Founders of The Rum University and Got Rum Magazine.
Designed for both existing and future rum distillers and brand owners, this 5-Day course combines theory and practice to provide attendees with a practical, hands-on education on all things rum. From the financial, marketing, and regulatory considerations to the distillation, aging, and blending processes, every student will leave this course with a nuanced understanding of rum production, the spirits business, and how rum fits into the global, economic landscape.
Of course, you won’t miss out on any of the fun stuff: you’ll get to explore the science of rum production while getting your hands dirty distilling at our on-campus facilities. We’ll also explore the history, category styles, and production methods for rum, as well as its mash bills, fermenting, distilling, and finishing processes. With rum tastings and sensory training sessions set up throughout the week, you’ll discover a variety of rum expressions and styles, and get a feel for the versatility of this delightful spirit.
Perks include a private tour to Kelvin Cooperage and a networking reception, scheduled throughout the week to further enrich your professional and learning experiences, and create industry and personal connections to last a lifetime.
Tuition includes all class materials; breakfast, lunch, and refreshments; attendance to exclusive tours and networking receptions throughout the week; and transportation between our contracted hotel and our campus. $5,495
**Early Bird Registration covers your stay at our contracted hotel from the night before Day 1 to the last day of class.
