$31,400 has been donated so far to academic research to grow the body of knowledge of craft distilling.
The third annual online charity auction will run Sept 1 to Sept 30, 2022. Donations from world class vendors will be auctioned off to raise funds annually. The funds will be disbursed to students and interns by an independent Advisory Committee composed of academics, distillers and scientists.
