The CIDS has an educational distillery, containing a 25-litre Chalvignac Charentais pot still.
The educational distillery offers :
• An opportunity to handle a pot still during our distillation courses
• A tool to help trainees hoping to set up a micro-distillery
• A place to carry out research about distillation
Being trained in conditions that are close to actual production offers an advantage and a real educational benefit, especially for trainees hoping to set up a micro-distillery.

F2B - Distilling spirits and adding value to effluents
F2C - Creating a micro-distillery: knowing the rules, defining your strategy
