Class Overview

Distiller for a Day | Seattle Central College - Continuing Education

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to make spirits like a small craft distiller? Here’s your chance to find out, hands on, exclusively with the lovely Skip Rock Distillers in beautiful Snohomish!  

This is a unique opportunity to work directly with Skip Rock’s distilling team to learn about the inner-workings of a grain-to-glass craft distillery operation.

Work with the renowned distiller Ryan Hembree to craft a spirit in a single day. Since the focus is on creating a unique, nuanced, and balanced spirit to delight your palate, you’re sure to gain insight into the craft (and heft!) of distilling.

The day rounds out with a tasting, sure to stimulate your tastebuds and passion for this age old process. There will be a lunch break with ample opportunity to enjoy the picturesque Snohomish town.

Student Testimonials

I’m not really sure how to put it other than the class was awesome!! I could read books on the topic all day and never learn as much as I did at Skip Rock. I would take more classes on this topic and have and will continue to recommend it. Thank you! – Dan

Really enjoyed it. I got everything that I had hoped for from the course. Unfortunately, I had to leave early, but Ryan agreed to answer questions after the course so that worked out well for me. Great job by Ryan! – JWF
