The Advanced Sake Sommelier course is a tour of Japanese breweries steeped in the rich history of sake. Students get exclusive access to not only observe, but also to take part in the brewing process. All accommodation and transport is provided, not to mention all authentic Japanese meals which are enjoyed with sake! The fun-filled schedule includes surprises from the organisers that add an exciting cultural flavour to your trip. High-quality photos are taken throughout to capture the wonderful experience, and everyone receives an SSA Sake Sommelier-branded cap! Extremely good value for money – I cannot recommend this course highly enough!"
Advanced SSA course that takes place in Japan, gives a totally different angle on the world of sake and its history. Being able to participate in sake making and see the process how this drink is made, how much patience, time and hard labour is put into it, made me want to appreciate the art and learn more about this magical liquid. The whole trip was organised and well timed. Great culinary experience! Great accommodation and some leisure time."
