WSET® Level 2 Award in Spirits

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.

※ This course will be conducted in English ONLY
