The Japan Sommelier Association (JSA) was formed in 1969 with the objective of furthering better understanding of wine and other beverages and for their promotion in Japan. The word sommelier is more often associated with wine but in recent years the JSA has focused on Sake and developed the Sake Diploma certification. The Sake Diploma is now one of the most famous and prestigious qualifications in Japan. Sake School of America is the exclusive provider of the JSA Sake Award Diploma Exam offered once a year around International Sake Day, in the North America. Please note this exam includes theory and blind tasting of both Sake and Shochu. $240 exam fee includes the textbook, which is mailed to you after registration is confirmed.
