Statera Academy is excited to offer this brand new online course from the Edinburgh Whisky Academy!
The Certificate in Irish Whiskey comprises eight modules of engaging online content which aim to give the candidate an enhanced in-depth knowledge and appreciation of the different styles of Irish whiskey. The course was written and developed by Irish whiskey experts Fionnán O’Connor and Matt Healy. The candidate will explore the history and business of Irish whiskey, before learning the whole production and maturation processes; including the different equipment used dependent on the different mash bills adopted. The candidate will also learn about legal requirements and how to run a sensory analysis of Irish whiskey via a tutored tasting. This pre-recorded tutored tasting can be enjoyed with samples through the purchase of a tasting selection from online whiskey retailer Irish Drams: https://irishdrams.com/
Beginner to intermediate, the course is well suited to those looking to break into the industry or who are new to the industry, as well as to enthusiasts looking to improve their knowledge.
The course is delivered online and is completely self-paced, candidates have 180 days access to the material from registration. We estimate 8-10 hours of study time to complete the course. Successful candidates will receive a digital certificate of completion.
