Class Overview

Craft Distilling Institute - Distilled Spirits Compliance SeminarWith Seattle Central College and guest distiller Todd Buckley, learn the ins and outs of “merchant bottling” – the process by which independent bottlers purchase barrels from single-malt distillers and then bottle, package, distribute and sell under their own label and labeling, helping you to determine whether or not it is a practice that is right for your distillery and unique product.
