Foundations of Distilling

During the 1-2 day course, students are welcomed to a ‘behind the scenes’ look at the whisky industry and taken through malt, mashing, fermenting, distilling and preparing for market. The course covers initial business and compliance requirements for distilling, the processes and prepares people opening new distilleries to move towards realisation. A great course for knowledge, contacts and next steps

The course starts at Hobart’s Hadley’s Orient Hotel and travels to Moo Brew Brewery and Sullivans Cove Distillery where students are taken through the process by the lead brewer and distiller before a final tasting to identify qualities of a good spirit.
