NEW – Craft Distilling as a Profession: The Vermont Experience

Vermont Technical College, in Randolph Center, Vermont, is offering a course on Craft Distilling as a Profession on May 15-20th, 2017, from 9am – 4pm.

As the course description explains:

Vermont is one of the leaders in the nationwide boom in microdistilling. This training brings students into direct contact with a variety of processes involved in building, operating, and working in a distillery and the distilling industry. Lectures, labs, visits from experts, demonstrations, and hands-on experience at distilleries introduce distilling and still design, fermentation, distillery economics, and basic business and marketing skills.

An emphasis is placed on production of high-quality spirits from local ingredients and how to bring these successfully to market. The training also covers such details as licensing, environmental concerns, permits, and reports for the TTB, safety, and quality control. Led by Duncan Holaday, a pioneer in micro-distilling, he is the owner and operator of Dunc’s Mill and consults on distillery and still design.
