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.


As of 1 March 2020, this course is now run by  Drinkmakers Australia. Please visit their site.

BUSINESS OF DISTILLING - PLanning a Successful DIStillery

Our pilot "How to start a distillery" course was a great success. We have just launched The Distillers Institute and our first course - Planning Your Successful Distillery which is a deep dive into how to set up your distillery. Jump over to The Distillers Institute.

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 once we know the impact of COVID. IBD courses will help with technical distilling knowledge and help troubleshoot problems. 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.
