Laura Johnson, founder and owner of You & Yours Distilling Co., is now accepting applications for her newly launched scholarship to attend Moonshine University’s distinguished 6-Day Distiller Course in Louisville, Kentucky. Open to those throughout the United States who identify as female, the chosen awardee will gain hands-on spirits experience and education during the upcoming January 31 to February 5, 2021 session. The deadline to apply for this inaugural paid seat is Wednesday, November 25, 2020 (11:59PM PST).
“I graduated from this same program in 2014. It was without a doubt the best education I could have asked for,” says Johnson. “I’m beyond excited to be in a position where I can personally help provide the same experience for another female who is enthusiastic in furthering their distilling education as well as aspires to keep the momentum and growth of crafting high-quality products in the spirits industry.”
Valued at $6,250, the intensive 6-Day Distiller Course brings over 40 industry experts under one roof for a practical and hands-on learning experience. This course combines technical spirits training and business management education for start-ups, industry professionals, and enthusiasts looking for a career in the distilling industry. Designed and taught by distillery operators, industry insiders, and world-renowned master distillers, this course exposes attendees to the realities of day-to-day distilling operations – from laying the first brick to getting a finished product on the shelf. Room, board and meals are also included. Flights to and from Louisville are not part of the scholarship prize.
To keep students and staff safe, Moonshine University has implemented new policies and procedures that include: reduced class sizes, daily health checks, mask requirements, personal bottles of hand sanitizer, and a modified class structure that allows MU to safely conduct the hands-on activities and sensory exercises that make their courses so effective.⠀
