We offer sake qualifications from two institutions, Sake Sommelier Association (SSA) and the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET)
Sake Sommelier Association (SSA) is an independent organisation formed to develop the understanding, education, and appreciation of Japanese sake. Founded in 2006, it is the first and only UK-based organisation that is solely committed to sake education and promotion around the world.
The SSA strives to advance the global appreciation and consumption of sake, as well as increase the opportunities for students to learn Japan's rich cultural history.
Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) was founded in 1969 to serve the growing educational needs of the UK wine and spirits industry. As recognition grew for WSET qualifications it gradually expanded access to qualifications abroad. Today WSET qualifications are available in over 70 countries.
WSET qualifications are globally recognised as the international standard in wine, spirit and sake knowledge. They are designed for those who are just starting out in their careers, as well as established professionals, and the many enthusiasts who have a passion for wines, spirits and sake.
