  • This week long advanced class offers a rare opportunity to study with Master Distiller & Master Blender Hubert Germain-Robin, International Consultant, creator of world-renowned Germain-Robin brandies and author of “Traditional Distillation: Art & Passion” and “The Maturation of Distilled Spirits: Vision and Patience.” Germain-Robin reveals many of the secrets of slowly nurturing the distilled spirit to create a supple round flavor and pleasant mouth feel. The workshop will combine traditional techniques of European-style brandies with four decades of experience in working with New World fruit to create new and interesting flavor profiles. The workshop addresses the conditions a craft distiller must be mindful of throughout distillation and maturation.

      Topics to be discussed in the class include:

        Varieties of apples for brandy production
        Fermentation for brandy
        Distillation on a traditional alambic Charentais pot still

        How to work with different varieties of apples
        Sensory analysis of new-made spirits, aged spirits, and boisés
        A variety of tastings and nosing for sensory analysis of eaux de vie
