Introduced to spirits and distillation at early age from his father in his own distillery, the love of fine spirits was virtually "in the cradle" of Arthur Nägele. After his education in hospitality management, he did return to that topic, having been invited as a member of the "Wädenswil senory evaluation group" in Switzerland, where he got his training as a spirits judge. Sensory evaluation certificate at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences - Institute of Food & Beverage Innovation and ongoing training with the world spirits academy round out his knowledge.
Arthur Nägele works as a independent spirits educator and consultant and is founding member of the Spirituosenakademie whose aim is to provide the knowledge and reputation of fine spirits. He is the only WSET Certified Educator in Austria, eastern Switzerland and southern Germany.
