For some years now, the spirits sector has literally exploded with new developments, especially in the premium segment. Whether whisky, gin or vodka, all categories have gained momentum and challenged the creativity of producers.
Sake is also affected by this: sake is the popular drink of the Japanese and an expression of their soul.
The fermented drink made from rice and water, with a 2000-year history and modern taste profile, is currently experiencing a renaissance worldwide. It is enjoying growing demand among wine lovers. The fine fruity aromas and the unique UMAMI taste fascinate sommeliers and bartenders in metropolises such as New York, London, Paris and Berlin as a connoisseur's drop and ideal food companion.
The comprehensive information on history, rice cultivation, classification, production, sensory analysis ("The Systematic Approach to Tasting Sake®") and food pairing offers an introduction to sake at a high and sophisticated level. The new specialist seminar Sake WSET® Level 3 concludes with an English-language examination by the international educational institution Wine and Spirit Education Trust; participants who successfully complete the course will receive the internationally recognised WSET® Level 3 Award in Sake. The seminar is led by Ms. Yoshiko Ueno-Müller, known in Germany as an expert on sake and other Japanese luxury foods, and has been a lecturer at the German Wine and Sommelier School for many years.
The lessons and the examination will be held in English. Registered participants will receive the English-language study pack and access to the WSET® online learning campus with access to the online Level 3 Sake Pre-Study with the confirmation of registration.
