Australian Women in Distilling scholarship announced

The Australian Women in Distilling Association has announced its 2019 AWDA Scholarship program.

The purpose of the AWDA is to promote, encourage, support and celebrate women in the Australian distilling industry.

"In keeping with this purpose we have established this scholarship to offer the successful candidate the opportunity to further their education, knowledge and skills in the industry," the association said.   

"This year the successful candidate will win a three-day distillers course at Old Kempton Distillery.This course offers an invaluable opportunity to learn everything, from distilling to the business behind the scenes."

During the distillery course, the successful applicant will work closely with Old Kempton Distillery in a one-on-one environment, giving them the opportunity to have a close look at the brewing, distilling and barrelling processes involved in the production of single malt whisky and other brewed and distilled products.

It's a priceless opportunity to learn about the essential equipment and processes required to open, operate and run a successful spirit distillation business.

Old Kempton Distillery is a small craft distillery based in Tasmania. It is not computerised, enabling the scholarship winner to understand the mechanics of distillation. During their training they will assist in the customs approved method of measuring alcohol volumes, along with other important distillery tasks required by the ATO.

The scholarship is valued at $2275 and entry is open to any member of the AWDA. Closing date for applications is Saturday, April 27.
