Scotch Whisky Education | Edinburgh Whisky Academy - Edinburgh Whisky Academy

Your Scotch Whisky education starts here

Edinburgh Whisky Academy’s unique, fully accredited diplomas combine the history, science, artistry and business of whisky-making to take you behind and beyond the marketing narratives of whisky’s many excellent brands. 

Our SQA accredited diplomas provide true knowledge and information on all aspects of Scotch Whisky history and production.  They have been developed with the close involvement of notable experts within the whisky industry with each expert providing content for the individual modules according to their specialisms, ensuring the relevance and high standard of the diplomas.

The Academy is an SQA accredited centre of learning.  Our diplomas have been specifically created to fill a vital gap in Scotch Whisky education.  All knowledge gained is totally impartial and neutral from any distillery or brand.

These brand new short diploma courses are designed to give brand managers, whisky and hospitality professionals, and serious enthusiasts a fully rounded and in-depth knowledge of malts, whisky tasting and blended whiskies.

The  diplomas are taught in the idyllic setting of Arniston House, a Palladian-style mansion set in extensive grounds outside Edinburgh. Alternatively, they can be delivered to groups at your place of work or a venue of your choice.
