James and Richard put on an amazing distillery school. I walked in with no experience in distilling and just a dream. They took the time to cover off every aspect of starting and operating your own distillery – from the mash right through the stripping, running stills, tasting product and all the details about marketing your product. They are an amazing wealth of information and always willing to give extra time to a question or a point. The best part is they are open about the mistakes they made and are invested in your success. They have an incredible approach to people. It was a fantastic experience and would highly recommend SoV to anyone considering a distillery.
