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!

We had a wonderful time listening to Ian give a thoughtful, understandable walkthrough of how the distilling process works, as well as how local and national regulations impact the industry. The tour was comprehensive behind the scenes, and warm and welcoming all the way through. I would recommend it to anyone.

The distilling class with Ian was great. We were lucky that the other expected attendees didn’t show, and we got to ask tons of questions. I learned more about distilling than I ever expected. This was a gift for my boyfriend, and he loved it. The tasting was delightful also. I’d definitely recommend this experience!

Ian really explains his background well as it pertains to making rum and gin. He was very patient and kind with our group and all the questions. Very interesting and enjoyable experience!

This was an amazing experience! Ian did a fantastic job breaking down the science behind this process to a very easy to understand level. He did an excellent job of answering questions and allowing us to see/taste/touch and smell anything and everything he could. I'm sure the information wouldn't change, but I would do this again in a heartbeat!

Totally awesome! Ian is both incredibly knowledgeable and easy to talk to. We knew almost nothing about the distilling process going into this, let alone the history or science behind craft spirits. We both found the brief lecture at the beginning fascinating and really enjoyed the step-by-step tour of Vitae Spirits Distillery. 10/10 would highly recommend!

Ian is an incredibly knowledgeable host (but makes everything accessible to those without a chemistry background)! Great way to learn about spirits and the tasting at the end was great. Highly recommend!
