"At Aqua Vitae Institute, we believe that alcohol is good! We celebrate the rich history and virtues of spirits and educate bartenders and consumers alike to respect the trade, perfect the craft, and drink with joy"
We are the first center dedicated to training and empowering both sides of the bar: The bartender and the guest. Aqua Vitae Institute prides itself on teaching people the Joy of Alcohol and on working with the most creative and inspiring people in the bar industry.
From Flair Maestros to Sommeliers and Brewing Masters, our instructors are some of the most specialized mixologists in the Philadelphia area. Many of the instructors at Aqua Vitae Institute are members of the United States Bartending Guild (USBG) and compete nationwide in bartending competitions.
