Join us in the Be Just Classroom for an evening of cocktail theory with Vitae Spirits. This workshop aims to begin to break down the barriers that keep at-home mixologists from fully realizing their bartending dreams. Participants will be guided by Professor Ian Glomski, Ph.D., Founder and Head Distiller at Vitae Spirits Distillery. Dr. Glomski will be sharing his expertise in spirits distillation, ingredient production, and hands-on cocktail design. Throughout this workshop, attendees will enjoy two cocktails and develop a foundation from which to start exploring the wonderful world of cocktails from their home and expand their ability to “WOW!” loved ones with their newfound talents at making a perfectly balanced cocktail.
All necessary materials will be provided. Must be 21 or older to participate!
About the instructor:
As a former Professor of Microbiology at the University Of Virginia School Of Medicine, Dr. Ian Glomski has had a profound fascination for microbes and how they sculpt our macroscopic world. He trained at the Pasteur Institute of Paris, gaining world-class experience in all things fermentation. With his background constructing and running medical microbiological research laboratories, a deep involvement with his family’s wine businesses, and a voracious appetite for luxury libations, a venture into the distillation realm was a perfect fit. Founding a distilled spirits enterprise gives life to so many aspects of his personality and training that it seems something akin to destiny. "When the stars align you run with it!"
