kentucky_louisville_moonshineUnfortunately, Road Trips Foodies, the first educational program on distilling has ended. (Fortunately, there will be more.)

Here’s some information on the program just completed: Distilled Spirits Epicenter, an artisan distillery and education center in Louisville, Kentucky, welcomed over 30 entrepreneurs and aspiring distilling professionals from the United States and Canada last month.

Moonshine University, the educational division of DSE, was the site of the five-Day Distiller Course, which explored not only the science of distillate production and its hands-on application, but also presented an examination of the business side of the distilling industry.

There was also a half-day session which explored the challenges of building a craft distillery, from site renovation/construction to financial and regulatory hurdles.

DSE was created by Flavorman custom beverage company founder David Dafoe. Founded on Kentucky’s rich distilling history and Dafoe’s 25 years’ experience in the beverage alcohol industry, the Epicenter opened in the spring of 2012 at 801 South 8th Street, Louisville, Kentucky (map). This facility is purpose-built for training, product development and pilot productions.

In addition to the five-Day Distiller Course, DSE’s Moonshine University offers Bourbon Enthusiast Classes the second Saturday of every month for those with the passion for America’s legendary native spirit. Each two-hour class features a theme, special guests, and hors d’oeuvres. Topics include bourbon’s history, legends and lesser known stories. Each class includes sensory evaluations of featured bourbons along with a tour of the distillery.
