This course will assist those who are required to make professional evaluations of sakes with regards to their quality and commercial value. The course provides in-depth product knowledge required to underpin job skills and competencies, for example in product selection in the retail and hospitality sectors. It is also a course suitable to keen amateurs wishing to explore the world of Sake.

The curriculum will cover the divisions between sake categories, important factors regarding sake style, quality and value, both a general and commercial viewpoint of the sake industry and its export markets, storage, selection and service guidelines and general tasting principles (see event page for a comprehensive list).
