The Academy offers bespoke courses for companies at their offices, which provides a more cost and time effective use of their staff resources. We work closely with the training/HR department to devise a bespoke program ensuring that the material taught is tailored to the company's specific needs. Thus far, we have worked closely with two companies and hope to broaden our corporate offering as the Academy launches more programs.
Absolutely fantastic experience, would recommend to anyone who would like to expand their knowledge. Vic in particular was great, couldn’t have picked a better tutor for the course.

IMD are currently undergoing a period of significant growth having recently bought Edinburgh Gin and announced plans to revive the Rosebank Whisky distillery. As a result of this and their resulting hiring programme, IMD asked the Academy to provide brief, intensive training to a group of their recent senior level hires.
After discussing their needs with the company, the Academy provided two days of training on Single Malt Whisky, Blended Whisky and Gin. Feedback was excellent and we expect to conduct further training as IMD hire more employees ahead of the future expansion of their portfolio and facilities.

One Square is a specialist Gin bar in the heart of Edinburgh. They conduct Gin training classes themselves and make a natural partner for the Academy and our Gin programme. As the Academy’s delivers the only accredited Gin education course, One Square’s bartenders have attended the Diploma in Gin and in return they make the cocktails for the Cocktail session at the end of the Diploma course.
This has been a mutually beneficial partnership and with the Diploma course moving to the Royal Botanic Gardens in 2019, we expect the relationship to progress further.
