If you are thinking of starting a distillery, you have a range of options to choose to reach your goal. You can certainly plan and research your own way, but if you want to fast track your knowledge
and start moving toward your goal then one of our courses might be a good way to start.

BUSINESS OF DISTILLING - with the distillers institute

Our pilot "How to start a distillery" course was a great success and we'll be back with a much deeper course soon that looks at all the ins and outs of a successful business. It will cover all the things you need for your business and how to ensure its success. Express interest and we'll let you know when its live.

Advanced Distilling with the institute of brewing& distilling

Joining with our friends at the Institute of Brewing and Distilling  - We'll be planning something again for mid to late 2020. While you can do IBD online modules, this course is designed to help with technical distilling knowledge and help troubleshoot problems with the help from other distillers. Ideal for building networks.

where else can I find information?

The Australian distilling industry is very supportive of new entries and we're often asked, how should I get started?

Our advice is to visit as many distilleries as you can to get a sense of what is going on in your area. If you then decide to pursue a career in the industry then give us a call to discuss pathway options available to you.

The Australian Distillers Association is also a great source of information and support for people
who become distillers or distillery owners.
