WSET Award in Spirits Level Two - Online

A beginner to intermediate level qualification exploring spirits and liqueurs for those working in the industry or spirits enthusiasts. You will learn about the fundamental production methods and principal raw materials and how they are used to make the key spirit and aromatised wine styles. You'll also explore the key practices and principles of serving spirits and the use of spirits in cocktails.

The course is based around a 5-week, 6 module online learning programme with educator support available for this time.

The course modules should be followed in order, but you are free to complete the modules at your own pace during this 5-week window. It is recommended to allow 6 hours study per week to cover the online activities and read the relevant chapters in the textbook. Regular access and participation in the course online activities is essential for this mode of study. This course is examined by a written theory paper examination held in central Oxford after completion of the online course.
