Thinking about distilling?

On the 3–5th of August, the Asia Pacific Whiskies and Spirits conference will be adding a seminar topic with interest to the wine industry. ‘Distilling for Wineries’ will be presented by Jurgen Deibel – a world renowned spirits expert.

The event presents a great opportunity for winemakers and winery owners to meet with and learn about a new frontier – winery distilleries.

For wineries, broadening their reach into distilled products is a major topic of discussion and an emerging trend across the world.  With an abundance of raw product (grapes) on their doorstep the session will cover off not only the obvious: brandy and fortified wines, but will discuss and explore liqueurs, new products & wine based spirits eg Pineau des Charentes, grappa-like products as well as vodka and gins.

Jurgen will discuss the possibilities, changes and opportunities for wineries to begin distilling.
