Welcome to the Independent Sake Education Network

We Are The World’s Premier Sake Education Specialist

Sake Sommeliers are experts who appreciate Japanese sake on a professional level, dedicate themselves in global sake education, and engage in promoting the splendidness of sake across the globe.

Since the establishment of the Academy in London in 2000, we have been focusing on maintaining small classrooms for all the courses, but have built a network of over 1,000 Certified Sake Sommeliers. Now we are proud to be able to offer courses in 18 countries spread over three continents.

Our designated educators, who all share our expertise and passion for sake education are ready and waiting to welcome you on our international courses. With the continued rise in popularity of Japanese cuisine and sake exports at record highs, we firmly believe that there has never been a better time to become a Sake Sommelier.

The Sake Sommelier Academy (SSA) was the first organisation in the UK to offer sake education. We’re based in London and since then have expanded to provide Sake Sommelier certification all over the world. We offer a comprehensive list of courses to suit all levels.

Our courses offer an opportunity to meet like-minded individuals while at the same time receiving serious career development, drawing sake lovers as well as professionals from around the world.
