Three Words: Scotch Whisky School
We were never very interested in school, but we've finally figured out the reason why - boring classes, girls wouldn't talk to us and there was no scotch there. Whisky School, on the other, seems much more our speed. Caring teachers, applied chemistry, snazzy green coats, the works, all in a real, working distillery.
Plus, you get to learn about scotch. And smell scotch. And drink scotch. And bring home a bottle of the scotch you made. We don't see a down side. Well, except for the fact that we'd have to find our way to Scotland somehow, but we'd manage.

To develop a total understanding of whisky production what better than to follow the process as it occurs in a Scotch Malt Whisky distillery, a procedure that takes 3 days, and 'lend a hand' in the process and take away not only a sample of spirit you have made, the sense of adventure that such an opportunity represents but also ownership of 9 litres of the spirit you have created that will be bottled for you once mature.
With the anticipation of creating 'The Water of Life' , the barley malting, the milling, the brewing, the formenting and the distilling takes place during a fascinating 3 days.
Join us for one of the most remarkable consumer events to have been created within the Scotch whisky industry, at a traditional farm-scale distillery created for whisky connoisseurs to get behind the scenes and experience Scotch Whisky production in an intimate, fun and eductional way.
Sadly, at just about $1,400 per person or $2,400 for two people, it doesn't look like we're going to be going anytime soon. If you're feeling charitable, however, go ahead and sign us up and let us know when classes begin...we'll be the ones drooling as we walk through the door.
