NEW! WSET Level 3 Spirits WSET
The WSET Level 3 Award in Spirits is an advanced-level qualification for professionals and enthusiasts wishing to acquire a detailed understanding of the spirits of the world and develop the tasting skills required to accurately describe and evaluate a spirit.
This qualification is intended to build on knowledge and skills gained from the Level 2 Award in Spirits. You’ll acquire a deep theoretical understanding of the techniques used in spirit production, from the processing of raw materials to post-distillation operations. Through a combination of tasting and the application of theoretical knowledge you will learn to explain confidently why spirits look and taste the way they do and how and why they differ from each other.
It is recommended that you hold the WSET Level 2 Award in Spirits or can demonstrate the equivalent level of knowledge. You must be of legal drinking age to participate in any alcohol tasting. However, this is not a barrier to successfully completing the course.
This course will:
- Processing of raw materials
- Alcoholic fermentation
- Post-distillation practices
- Scotch Whisky
- Rye Whiskey
- Tennessee Whiskey
- Caribbean rum
- Principal production methods
- Key styles
- Key labelling terms
