Craft Distilling as a Profession: The Vermont Experience

Vermont Technical College
Randolph Center, VT

Vermont is one of the leaders in the nationwide boom in microdistilling. This course brings students into direct contact with a variety of processes involved in building, operating, and working in a distillery and the distilling industry. Lectures, labs, visits from experts, demonstrations, and hands-on experience at distilleries introduce distilling and still design, fermentation, distillery economics, and basic business and marketing skills. An emphasis is placed on production of high-quality spirits from local ingredients and how to bring these successfully to market. The course also covers such details as licensing, environmental concerns, permits, and reports for the TTB, safety, and quality control.
