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 an expert on distilling and spirits! We had a great time learning about the process. My favorite part was learning about the difference between the types of spirits including Whisky, Gin, Vodka, etc. Their bartender was very informative and friendly as well.

Wonderful experience, Ian is a great host, loves to share his experience and passion. Had a great time, learned a lot, and enjoyed the tasting, my favorite was the barrel-aged rum.

We enjoyed it very much, my boyfriend loved it and was very interested in the science aspect. Ian provided answers for almost all of his questions and overall we had a great time

Touring Vitae distillery was such a treat! Ian was incredibly knowledgeable about both the history of spirits and the distillation process. Ian's background as a science professor made the tour not only educational but approachable and fun (the mark of a good teacher)! The tour was a history and chemistry lesson rolled into one! It was a pleasure getting to know Ian and learn about his business. Will definetly return next time we are in the area. Couldn't reccommend more!
