New World Distillery, in Eden, UT, will be hosting a third hands-on, interactive course with Craft Distillers Chris and Ashley Cross, together with the instructional team of Edwin and Veronika Van Eijk and Jason Cawthron of iStill.
Regardless of your experience, the type of equipment you are using or investigating, or the spirit focus you desire to perfect, our course objectives aim to empower you to take risks, make bold decisions and ultimately produce flavor-rich, top-shelf, award-winning spirits.
*You will be trained in several theories of distilling and how you can apply them to make better tasting spirits.
*We will pack a ton of classroom instruction and production floor application into three, full days.
*We will cover mashing, fermentation, distilling, maturing and aging and all things in-between. We will talk about formula development, research and development practices, sourcing of raw materials, proofing spirits and how to ensure replicatability when producing on a craft scale.
*Mark Coombs from Anton Parr will run a hands on session on proofing spirits.
At the end of the course, you will have learned how to influence the taste profile of the spirits you want to make; you will have learned about cuts, and you will learn how mashing and fermenting can be tweaked in such a way that they support the taste-rich flavor profile that will define your craft spirit.
