A former Professor of Microbiology at the University Of Virginia School Of Medicine, I have had a profound fascination for over twenty-five years for microbes and how they sculpt our macroscopic world. An experienced brewer, winemaker, cheesemaker, meat curer, kefir culturer, veggie pickler, wild mushroom forager, and infectious disease specialist, anything having to do with microbes turns me on; having trained at the Pasteur Institute of Paris, founded by the father of modern fermentation Louis Pasteur.

With all of my experience teaching at UVA under my belt, there is nothing I like more than sharing my passion for distillation with enthusiastic newbies and experienced moonshiners alike!

Ian is friendly, professional, informative and crazy smart. It was easy to talk with him about both the distilling process and his personal background. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the tastings!

This was a very fun and educational experience. The tastings were phenomenal and it was very interesting to find out all that went into the distilling process. Ian was very friendly, helpful and informative, even sharing some restaurant recommendations and talking with us about traveling and more!

I knew nothing about distilling alcohol and I left with a new learning experience and appreciation of the time and dedication it takes to create a product. I've also found a new respect for rum :)

What Ian has done and what he’s building upon is a really fascinating niche of the spirits world! My partner and I learned so much, and his rum and liqueurs are scrumptious and unique. Don’t pass up this opportunity to taste what happens when a passionate, detail-oriented, very bright human creates something magical.

Wow! What a unique and fun experience. My boyfriend and I are neither of us liquor connoisseurs, but we sincerely enjoyed this tour. Not only did Ian explain in an accessible and enjoyable way the processes by which they create their goods, but he threw in many interesting tidbits about other liquors, the history of spirits in America, and anecdotal stories about his life, the business of the distillery, and why they were founded. His extensive knowledge of and passion for science (as well as the science of distilling) is clear and really makes you want to be excited about the concepts, too! Eye-opening for being both down-to-earth and wholly engaging, it was unlike any other tour we have had to date, and for both newbies and experienced tasters we recommend it highly. Just make sure you have a bite to eat before you visit- their spirits will definitely raise yours!
