The growing need from the students across the globe to learn about Scotch Whisky has finally come true. The Moray College UHI, in partnership with Gordon & MacPhail, the World’s Leading Malt Whisky Specialist, is organising a 20 hour online course that can be studied anytime, anywhere with an internet access. The course is designed to give an understanding of Scotch whisky for students who are interested.
The course aims to introduce students to the Scotch whisky industry and covers the history of whisky making, the production process and marketing. A section on whiskies from around the world, including Canada and Japan, is also covered to highlight the differences across the globe. Delivered along with eight whisky miniatures and three sampling glasses the course also helps to develop skills in nosing and tasting, so students can appreciate the general characteristics of different styles and types of whisky, including single and blended malts.
Moray College UHI originally joined forces with Gordon & MacPhail to develop a residential whisky course, which was then developed into an open learning course available as a CD- Rom. Following growing registration from students overseas, from Austria to Australia, it is now available as an interactive, online course – making it even more accessible.
