The World Association of Spirit Tasting & Education is widely regarded as the penultimate authority on distilled spirits. Founded as both a respected and independent alcoholic beverage review organization, its mission is to create non-biased reviews of distilled spirits and educate its members and consumers concerning products and trends.
The organization's tasting panels are made up of a diverse group of experienced and trained "fellows,"
ensuring the organization's reviews appeal to a broad spectrum. All of our Fellows adhere to the standard tasting procedures established by the Wine & Spirit Education Trust, as modified by the Fellows of the World Association for Spirit Tasting and Education.
