Course information

The term whiskey is derived from a Gaelic word meaning "the water of life" – and it’s a spot-on name too; this wonderful, complex spirit has been sustaining us since before the 15th century!

Whiskey is an umbrella term for distilled alcoholic drinks made from fermented mash grain – most often from barley, wheat, corn, and rye. With many varieties of the drink, laws surrounding production, and a distinct vocabulary for discussing it, it’s no wonder whiskey is one of the most intimidating spirits to learn about.

Advanced Whiskey Knowledge is a comprehensive course that will take your understanding of whiskey to the next level.

To do this, we will cover:

  • The types of grains used to make whiskey
  • The flavour profile different grains give to whiskey
  • The origin of whiskey in Scotland and Ireland
  • The production process of whiskey
  • The traditional styles of whiskey including Scotch, Irish, American and Canadian
  • Key global players of whiskey including Japanese-style whisky.
