Certificate in Scotch Whisky

Exploring the fascinating world of Whisky across eight modules, this fun and accessible SQA-certified online course will enhance your appreciation of all things aqua vitae.

Working through a series of interactive exercises, videos and pop quizzes, you’ll discover more about the history and business of Scotch before covering the entire production process, from raw materials to distillation, maturation and bottling.

The flexible, self-paced format allows you to learn in your own time and, with quizzes at the end of each module, you can measure all the knowledge you’re distilling as you go.

As well as a certificate of completion, you’ll come away knowing so much more about the golden liquor in your glass. Whether you consider yourself a whisky connoisseur or are simply curious to learn more, you’ll certainly get something out of our award-winning material and industry expertise.

Upon purchase, you’ll receive an email invitation to our online learning platform. If this is your first course with us, you’ll need to create a password before you can login and begin. You can then access the course material for 180 days.

Optional next step: should you wish to take the formal online assessment and gain the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) Certificate, there is an additional cost of £80 to cover the SQA fee.
