Coming soon


Steadily increasing, world-wide demand for unique Craft Beers during the past few years has paved the way for another observable trend: Demand for quality distilled beverages is on the rise. In the beginning we had whiskey for the cognoscenti pouring out of international breweries.
Meanwhile, consumers have shown focussed interest in complex, distilled spirits such as gin, vodka, absinth and rum, to name but a few. Breweries are following these trends closely, recognising new opportunities for themselves in this growing market segment. This seminar presents an overview of market trends, introduces the fundamentals of producing the various beverages and will even strive to educate the palate through tastings of selected samples.

The course is taught in English
