This course explores all business aspects of the brewing, distilling, and wine-making markets in the United Kingdom. Beginning in London (home to English Dry Gin) and ending in Edinburgh (home to Scotch Whiskey), the class examines the many factors that affect the supply chain and business decision-making in the alcoholic beverage industry, including the environmental, political, regulatory, and economic aspects impacting this industry now. Visits are planned to distilleries and breweries, as well as suppliers and distributors, from which students will gain a comparative perspective on how the American and British adult beverage industries manage similar issues and challenges.
Many locations included in the course offer tastings that are voluntary.
