Malcolm Bucholtz B.Sc., MBA has been making beer, wine and mead for over 30 years. In 2014, he completed the General Certificate in Distilling from the UK-based Institute for Brewing and Distilling (IBD) which propelled him headlong into the world of distilled spirits. Malcolm has gained a reputation in Canada for teaching in-person distillery courses to entrepreneurs interested in one day launching a craft distillery. He has also assisted numerous start-up craft distilleries with business plan development, recipe formulation, and contract distilling services. He is in the final stages of fulfilling the requirements for his M.Sc. in Brewing & Distilling from Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, it is not currently possible to deliver in-person distillery courses. Malcolm has taken all the presentation content from his in-person training courses and re-formatted it for delivery on-line.
