Bartender Education isn't a trend, it's a movement. 


OFFSITE works with Beam Suntory to produce Jim Class, a multi-tiered activation where guests take a deep-dive into sensory science, maturation and distillation, and industry regulation, all hosted in beautiful, unique locations across North America. 

Mixing the traditional with the inspirational, Jim Class operates on a “knowledge is power” philosophy, utilizing the tools available at distilleries to craft new educational content. Trade members are craving information, and are often frustrated with the overly branded presentations that they must endure to acquire it. Jim Class' success lies in its ability to teach the trade in a way that is authentic, accurate and entertaining.


Distilling Academy is a four-week, hands-on, chemistry-driven distillation class designed specifically for bartenders. Starting with raw material in the first class, students physically partake in -- and make intentional, defendable decisions about -- every step of the distillation process, up until barreling a single barrel spirit in the last class. Limited to 10 students per session, our graduates are tending bar (and managing) some of the most prestigious bar programs in Boston and beyond.


OFFSITE works with the Patrón Spirits Company on the Cocktail Development Program: an immersive three days during which the doors of the Patrón Hacienda are flung open to provide an all-access education on the history, philosophy and production methods utilized in tequila. Designed to create a partnership with some of the best, most creative bartenders in the US, participants in the Cocktail Development Program, are enlisted to help create a library of delicious, innovative cocktails inspired by tequila's history, philosophy and production method.
