studying distilling

Our Approach

The Academy connects people who want to know about distilling with the people who've been there. We visit brewers and distillers including the amazing Sullivans Cove to learn more about distilling.

Our Foundations course takes people on a journey, to create pathway to success. Our partnership with the Institute of Brewing and Distilling connects you with a professional pathway in distilling.
