Moonshine University. Let’s Enroll!

Jan. 13, 2015 — Hardly a week goes by that we don’t hear of a new distillery breaking ground or having a grand opening.  We’re all for entrepreneurship and very interested to see that another entrepreneur has figured out that aspiring distillers need help.

Moonshine University located at the Distilled Spirits Epicenter in Louisville is now enrolling candidates for the 2015 workshops and courses.  Got to love that name.  It’s not just a “Center”.  It’s an Epicenter!

So what are they offering?  If you are an Enthusiast you can attend a daylong hands on distilling workshop either on February 20 or June 29.  The cost is $395.00 and it’s all about making bourbon.

The Distiller Workshops are two-day events and cover a choice of Fermentation, Gin, Marketing, Advanced Sensory Training, Operations, Rum, Whiskey and Absinthe.  You need to check their web site for details and dates.  The costs run from $1,495 to $1,995.

The most extensive, and expensive, course covers technical training and business management and offers a college credit.  The Distiller Courses are five days each and cost $5,495 to $5,950.  The January course is sold out but there are classes available in February, March, July and October.

Moonshine University was founded in 2012.  Check out what respected writer Tom Fischer has to say about it at  For details about the courses offered,  go to .  To register call (502) 301-8126 or email
