WSET Level 2 Spirits | 3 Week Course | Manchester

This course is great if you’re new to spirits: whether for your career or just interested. More detail on types, styles and production processes than Level 1, but you do not need to have taken the Level 1 before.


This is a weekly, full day release version of the course over 3 consecutive weeks (1 full day per week). You must attend each session to complete the course.

The course ends in an exam which must be taken in person. It is a 1 hour, 50 question multiple-choice exam and you must score 55% or above  to pass. Those who pass will get a certificate and lapel pin.

You will be sent the WSET Spirits 2 Study Guide, a manual and SAT tasting card. The classes also include the recommended tasting samples for you to try. There are 30 including: XO Cognac, aged rum, Mezcal, single malt Scotch & Japanese whisky.
