Trail Distilling hosted the inaugural WSET Level 2 in Spirits Course last month, with a mix of distillers, ambassadors and spirit lovers completing a distillation run and commissioning the first class barrel. Trail Distilling is the first distillery in the country to be certified to teach WSET Award in Spirits Courses.
Celebrating its 50th year, WSET is recognized as the global leader for spirit education and the
trusted source for anyone looking to increase their level of spirits knowledge. WSET training is
perfect for distillers, bartenders, brand ambassadors or spirit enthusiasts.
A WSET qualification provides comprehensive training including production methods,
characteristics of principal international spirits and the Systematic Approach to Tasting Spirits
(SAT) methods. Classes will be taught on sight at Trail Distilling and include a hands-on
distillation class which covers principles and techniques of distillation using a column still.
Benefits of WSET training include increased business profitability, improved employee retention and greater customer satisfaction.
