PiscoLogía Announces Launch of Spanish Version of Virtual Pisco Certificate Course
Interactive, self-paced online course is the first to offer certification in the clear spirit in Spanish; enrollment is now free to all students
The Pisco Certificate Course, created and maintained by PiscoLogía Pisco, is now available in the Spanish language. The interactive online training includes assessment, forums and certification, in addition to offering pisco-related English-language training. To celebrate the launch, the course will be available for free for all students.
“After successfully launching the Pisco Certificate Course in English, we became acutely aware of the demand for a version in Spanish. Now Spanish-speakers from around the globe can become enriched by our program. We hope to translate and localize content in more languages in the future, as our goal is to make information about the clear spirit more accessible to the entire world”, said Meg McFarland, founder of the Pisco Certificate Course.
In addition to the 29 lessons and their corresponding activities, quizzes, and exams, the course offers English lessons for Spanish-speaking students. “It is our hope that the English vocabulary and listening comprehension activities will give Spanish-speakers more tools so they can teach others about pisco. This, in turn, will help continue to spread the word about this fine spirit”, said Kami Kenna, co-founder of PiscoLogía and the Certificate Course.
PiscoLogía Quebranta, a single-variety Peruvian pisco, recently won a gold medal at the Women’s Wine and Spirits Awards in London.
PiscoLogía Acholado, a blend of Italia and Quebranta piscos, was awarded a gold medal at the SIP Awards in California. Both piscos are crafted in the Denomination of Origin of Lima (Azpitia) by Master Distiller Nati Gordillo.
