About the Course:

The word whiskey comes from the Gaelic "uisce beatha" meaning literally "water of life." From its humble origins in the monasteries of medieval Ireland and Scotland, the drink has stretched across the globe from North America to Japan and the modern single malt is widely celebrated as the world's premier after table drink. With over 1,000 flavor affecting compounds and a range of around 400 scientifically identifiable flavors, a glass of peated aged single malt Scotch is the world's most complex spirit. This course gives students a detailed insight into the art of the single malt's production and an understanding of the history and culture that led from the coarse medicine of medieval Gaeldom to the modern esteem of Scotland's distilleries as the "Vineyards of the North."

 In this class, students will learn what whiskey really is and gain the necessary skills to appreciate the subtle nuances that make whisk(e)y truely unique!
