We are certified providers of WSET Level 1 Award in Sake in English. Since the study material and the exam is in English we teach in English as well.

The course doesn’t require prior knowledge, and provides a introduction for those working in retail and hospitality – or just interested in Sake. Successful candidates will identify sake categories, understand their characteristics, and learn key principles of storage and service, enabling them to respond to customer queries and provide recommendations.

The course will cover the following subjects:

  • The basic principles of sake production
  • The main types and styles of sake, 
  • How to serve sake
  • Factors affecting the flavour of sake
  • How to describe sake using the WSET Level 1 Systematic Approach to Tasting Sake (SAT)
