Webinar: Diagnosing Spirits Quality: The Importance of Glassware



For centuries, distillers, judges, and consumers alike have neglected the scientific principles of olfactory detection, and the glassware industry has failed miserably to apply science to glassware size and shape, resulting in the prolific use of glassware which does more to hinder diagnostics rather than enhance. This seminar will educate the attendee in the olfactory and nosing process, and demonstrate the importance of two different styles of glassware and their diagnostic capabilities. This seminar will hinge on raising the quality bar and standardization of nosing practices to level the playing field in judging and evaluation.
