Introduction to Spirits

Learning about spirits is a hands-on activity. However, to engage in a discussion, a team member must possess basic knowledge that prepares them for the vocabulary, processes, service elements, the different types of garnishes, and appropriate glassware that are associated with beverage sales and service.

Our course lays the foundation on which you can build your operation’s specific spirits offerings.
