Other products & services:


We offer a variety of taster training courses. Join one of our public courses, or we’ll come to your place to deliver one just for you and your team. From as little as one day, up to two weeks, depending on the level of skill you’re looking to achieve. We’ll teach you to assess the quality of your product for release to the market, taste ingredients and in-process samples, describe the flavour of your product in quantitative terms, evaluate shelf-life and more. Each training day involves evaluation of around 50 samples, with your skills being tested and scored on each and every sample. We are also able to offer remote online training, with per-person training packs so that assessors can participate safely from home during Covid-19.


Subscribe to one of our Taster Validation Schemes to assess the performance of your brewery tasters. Using blind- coded flavours added to your beer, we’ll challenge your tasters’ skills in the areas of flavour identification and flavour intensity evaluation, providing a score for their current level of competence and giving you the information you need to make targeted improvements.

Professional Tasting Services

We have also done raw materials analysis, troubleshooting and descriptive profiling of brands.
