The sharing of knowledge

With the aim of opening up the world of whisky and spirits to as many people as possible, La Maison du Whisky makes it its priority to pass on knowledge in all forms: knowledge of the craft and knowledge of tasting, all through the sharing of specialized expertise. That’s why training and product initiation are the cornerstone of all initiatives carried out by La Maison du Whisky, whose raison d’être is to make exceptional products accessible to all in the simplest possible way.

The whisky, spirits

& cocktail Academy

There is only one short step from being passionate about a product to being passionate about sharing it. The main mission of the LMDW Academy is simply to be able to offer all spirits and cocktail lovers – whether newcomers or connoisseurs – the tools necessary for exploring the world that we have been passionate about for more than 50 years.

Through complementary but independent tasting sessions, the Academy’s experts tackle a host of themes, providing a unique experience that will be enjoyed by all spirits and whisky lovers.

WSET certifications and training
LMDW professional


Leader in wine education on an international scale, the Wine & Spirits Education Trust has since developed specialized certifications for spirits. It was only natural for LMDW to offer these certifications, and to guarantee the very best experience, we teamed up with WiSP, a Bordeaux-based wine school who specializes in WSET trainings for over 10 years.

The WSET level 2 and 3 spirits courses are held in the heart of Paris in our dedicated training area for small groups of maximum 10 participants. A certified LMDW expert leads the course, during which you will learn production methods and how to describe and assess spirits according to the WSET method. At the end of the course, participants are evaluated and successful candidates receive an offical WSET certification recognized throughout the industry.
