The Certified Sake Sommelier course takes place over two days.

Extensive Introduction to Sake (Day 1 – Module 1)
On day 1 we cover the following:
  • The history of Sake
  • Sake production
  • Sake terminology and classifications
  • Sake tasting by category

Working Professionally with Sake (Day 2 – Module 2)
On day 2 we consider the wider aspects of the sake industry including:
  • Maturity, temperature and aromatic profiles.
  • Understanding Sake labels
  • Sake tasting by type
  • How to introduce sake to customers
  • Professional issues including purchasing, storage and Sake vessels
  • Umami and its relationship to Sake.

Over the two days we taste a wide variety of Sakes and designations.

There’s a test on the second day with multiple-choice questions, written questions and a tasting test. On successful completion of the course, you’ll be presented with an official SSA certificate and a lapel pin, qualifying you as a Certified Sake Sommelier.

With the knowledge acquired during the course, you will be comfortable conducting in-house sake training and educational programmes to both members of the public and of the beverage industry.
