Do you think you have studied hard to be the best distiller that you can be? Bet you have not heard about this exam, which has one of the lowest pass rates in the world.

As part of our Intellectual/Inspirational Sunday blog posts, we will provide recommendations for third party materials that we find provide inspiration and perspective as to how much certain individuals commit to becoming the best in their field.

This week, we are recommending a documentary called “Somm”, which is available on Netflix:

It documents four individuals that are preparing for the Master Sommelier exam, which is supposed to have one of the lowest pass rates in the world.  These guys, based on tasting an arbitrary bottle of wine, can tell the year the grapes were harvested, the region of the world it came from, the winery, how it was made, etc.  It is amazing what these guys can do.

Do you think you can do that with whiskey or any other spirit?

Have a great week ahead and happy learning!
