WSET Level 1 Award in Spirits - ONLINE

About The Online Course

Learn about spirits through a 4 week online study programme that is flexible to work around your existing commitments.

The Level 1 Award in Spirits Online covers the same syllabus as the classroom course, but through a supported Online Classroom which allows you to study alongside your peers under the guidance of a dedicated educator. 

Please note* that the exam is completed in person, in Wine Way Center and NOT online.

This online course will guide you through the world’s key spirit categories and production methods. The course is designed to introduce spirits in an interactive, structured and concise manner. You will learn how to taste spirits using a systematic approach.

As you work through the course you will be asked to share your learning experience with the rest of the course group, by sharing your tasting notes. Tasting is an essential part of studying for this course, and you will need to taste a minimum of 6 spirits (not provided, but you will be given guidance on the categories to taste).

Successful students will receive a WSET certificate and lapel pin.
