The WSET Level 2 Award in Spirits is intended for people who have little or no prior knowledge of spirits. It is intended to provide a comprehensive level of focused product knowledge required to underpin job skills and competencies – for example, in bar service, and for staff requiring focused product knowledge in retail and wholesaling businesses.
Successful candidates will be able to give information on the characteristics of the principal spirits and aromatised wines as well as their methods of production. They will confidently provide guidance on the use and service of spirits and make informed recommendations to customers when selecting spirits and liqueurs to meet their taste and price requirements.
What you'll learn:
- Understand the main production factors that affect a spirit's style.
- Understand how the principal types of spirits are produced and labelled, and describe their key characteristics.
- Understand how the principal types of flavoured spirits and aromatised wines are produced and labelled, and describe their key characteristics.
- Know the principles used to create a balanced cocktail and name some core cocktail families.
- How to describe spirits using the WSET Level 2 Systematic Approach to Tasting Spirits® (SAT)
This course will be a five-week, six-module online course with Online Educator support available during this time, with a recommendation of six hours study per week to cover the online activities and read the relevant chapters in the book. Regular access and participation in the course online activities is essential for this mode of study.
The course modules should be followed in order, but students are free to complete the modules at their own pace during this five-week period. Each module includes a series of independent activities to help students understand the key styles of spirits and how they are made.
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 26 hours of study. To obtain the WSET Level 2 Award Certificate in Spirits qualification, students will need to successfully pass the Computer-based exam with remote invigilation made up of 50 multiple-choice questions in 60 minutes. Results take four to five weeks to be released by WSET, and successful candidates will receive a WSET Certificate and lapel pin.
