SEMINARS:

Our first-in, best-dressed seminars are always a big hit with attendees to Indie Spirits Tasting events. The line-up for Melbourne will be as follows:

SESSION 1

1pm – 1.30pm - Distilling 101

Come and check out The Craft & Co’s still and get the lowdown on how your favourite spirits are made. How does distillation work? What is vapour distilling, what are we talking about when talk pot and column stills? Get answers to those and more at Distilling 101.

2pm – 2.30pm - Amaro: a little bit of bitter makes your drinking better

Amari. They’re the Italian-inspired spirits that are making their way around the world, and Aussie distillers are adapting them to suit local ingredients; find out why a little bit of bitterness makes flavour pop, where these bitter aperitif drinks came from and more.

SESSION 2

4pm – 4.30pm - Sustainability – the ethics of buying artisanal

Small is beautiful, right? You want craft, you want rare, and you’ll pay top dollar to get it — but where does the money go? Does making spirits the traditional way mean ruling out development? Is the spirits industry destroying the environment?

5pm – 5.30pm - Distilling 101

Come and check out The Craft & Co’s still and get the lowdown on how your favourite spirits are made. How does distillation work? What is vapour distilling, what are we talking about when talk pot and column stills? Get answers to those and more at Distilling 101
