At the end of the course there is a 30-question multiple choice exam and a practical tasting test on four whiskies. The delegate’s tests are sent to Scotland for grading, and certificates are issued in case of success. Successful delegates receive also a lapel badge.

The overall dose of whisky poured corresponds to the alcohol content of two glasses of wine. More is always offered as long as no driving is involved and safety ensured. The responsible behavior of each guest is expected.

What is the required minimum level to attend Whisky Ambassador course?

There is no requirement, but it is best to have taken at least the "Tasting Fundamentals" experience and one Masterclass before. This will increase significantly the chances of succeeding the exam.
