There was a pleasant surprise waiting for me in the post when I got back from Cardiff – the results of my WSET Level 3 Award in Sake!

As I mentioned in the write-up of the course, I was very worried about the tasting component of the exam as I didn’t have a lot of experience in tasting (sake or otherwise) and wasn’t sure how much I would be required to do for a blind tasting in order to even pass… but thanks to the wonderful Natsuki Kikuya I not only passed but got a distinction!

Absolutely delighted and will be using the official logo with pride on my next set of business cards. ^___^
