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!

Wonderful and fun experience! We learned so much about the complexity and science of making gin and rum. Ian is a great teacher and his creations are awesome! Super fun to taste test, as well!

Ian is totally awesome we had such a good time. This is a great tour you get to walk around the entire distillery and get an inside look. You get Samples of 3 spirits. Worth doing if you are down to learn something new.

As a former bartender and science teacher this presentation offered more than I could have hoped for. Led by a former microbiology professor the information provided was super engaging and informative! My non-science loving husband left intrigued to the point that he actually used it as a springboard to learn more about the science of distillation. You will leave your tour entertained and informed. Then you will have a chance to try out some of the spirits you just learned about. Hands down the best tour of this type I have been on. An incredible value and a wonderful opportunity to learn from someone who is clearly passionate about what he does.

I HIGHLY recommend this experience! The tour was much more in-depth than you get on the usual winery/brewery/distillery tours. Ian is welcoming, personable, and incredibly knowledgeable. You can tell he truly enjoys and is excited about his work. The other staff were all very friendly and the customer service was excellent! We really enjoyed the tour, learning about the distilling process, learning about how Vitae is unique in how they process their spirits, and sampling the tasty products - in fact, the cocktail I had was easily one the top three drinks I have ever had (check out the Citrus Square cocktail)! I will recommend to any friends and family (and fellow Airbnb-ers) to check out Vitae Spirits if ever in the Charlottesville area.

We had the best time at Vitae, Ian gave us a wonderful and unique tour. Ian's background in pedagogy definitely shone through. The spirits were stunning and the cocktails were delicious, we will definitely be back the next time we are in town! We also appreciated the staff's thoughtful recommendations for the rest of our time in Charlottesville. Vitae is a UNIQUE experience, even for spirit-enthusiasts!

Fantastic experience - we learned not only about the history of spirits in the US and the chemistry of distillation, but also gained an appreciation as to what it takes to run a craft distillery (not a job for the faint hearted). We are looking forward to using our spiced rum over the coming months. Many thanks, Ian!
