Well done!

Just finished the W4 - Infused spirits course on-line. It was well organised, progression through the sections was logical and there was tons of information in there. Can't wait to use the methodology to build my own flavour library and create my recipes! The course was also extremely inspiring. Thanks a million!

Super excited to have jumped in to rescuing this distillery due to the effects of Covid 2020. The course was very informative and I really enjoyed the humor and relaxed nature of the presentation. We look forward to continued success as we tentatively enter the uncertainty of 2021!
