The Distilled Spirits Epicenter is an academy of all things liquor that guides curious customers through the ins and outs of distilling with a handful of educational workshops and classes. The day-long, hands-on Moonshine University workshop provides a crash course in production methods, and even lets students try their hand at turning out a batch of hooch. Meanwhile, two-hour enthusiast classes offer a quick primer on bourbon, gin, and other spirits (with tasting opportunities, of course).
If you dream of breaking into the biz, sign up for the five-day distiller course, where some of the biggest names in bourbon share their insights and wisdom. You’ll even produce your own small-batch test run in the on-site Grease Monkey Distillery. For class schedules, prices, and registration, call (502) 301-8130 or visit moonshineuniversity.com
