The WSET Level 1 Award in Spirits is intended as a beginner level introduction to spirits for those starting a career in the industry or pursuing an interest in spirits. The course offers a hands-on introduction to the world of spirits. You’ll explore the main styles and types of spirits through sight, smell, and taste to develop an understanding of the key factors affecting flavors and aromas.
What you'll learn:
- The basic principles of spirit production
- The main types and styles of spirits
- How to serve spirits
- Factors affecting the flavor of spirits
- How to describe spirits using the WSET Level 1 Systematic Approach to Tasting Spirits® (SAT)
This course will be a four-week, five-module online course with Online Educator support available during this time. The course modules should be followed in order, but students are free to complete the modules at their own pace during this four-week period. Each module includes a series of independent activities to help students understand the differences between spirit types and styles.
Students are also advised to taste a range of spirits during their studies. The list of recommended spirits will be provided within each relevant module, but the full list of recommended spirits can also be found in the course Specification document. Students can post their tasting notes in the Online Classroom for review by the Online Educator. If a student chooses not to taste alcohol for health or religious reasons, or is unable to purchase or access the styles of spirits, this will NOT be a barrier to successfully completing the qualification.
The course content should take a minimum of six hours of study. To obtain the WSET Level 1 Award Certificate in Spirits qualification, students will need to successfully pass the Computer-based exam with remote invigilation made up of 30 multiple-choice questions in 45 minutes. Results take four to five weeks to be released by WSET, and successful candidates will receive a WSET Certificate and lapel pin.
