A Better Batch Located on the second floor near the Wine Appreciation Center, the Distilled Spirits Center will become synonymous with spirits education nationwide. There will be a resident drink master on staff with the credentials of a master sommelier or a certified spirits educator. In the tasting room, students and guests will study the process of distilling from grain to glass and bottle to barrel, learning to appreciate the science and art that goes into a good Scotch, Cognac or other distilled beverages.
