Head Distiller – Premium Spirits

£Competitive Salary + Benefits

Office Based – South West

An exciting opportunity has arisen within an incredibly fast growing premium spirits business. Specialising in luxury, high end spirit brands the business has gone from strength to strength with its core range of spirits and has since expanded into other product areas. They produce all of their own liquids and the distilling process is handled by them from start to finish, making sure to only use the highest quality ingredients. They are now looking for an experienced Head Distiller to join the business.

As Head Distiller you will be responsible for the day to day running of the distillery. This will include managing and developing a small team of production staff as well as overseeing the production from the sourcing of raw materials right through to the distillation process. You will be tasked with developing new products in conjunction with the marketing team and ensure that all staff adhere to set specifications and processes. Quality is of the upmost importance so it is critical that you maintain detailed logs for each phase of the distillation process and make sure that you achieve the highest levels of hygiene and food safety.

To be considered for this opportunity you will ideally have a minimum of 5 years’ experience distilling spirits.  Those with a background in premium white spirits will be preferred but standout applications with brown spirits experience will also be considered. You will also be required to have all relevant chemistry and brewing and distilling qualifications. The ideal candidate will be dynamic, full of energy and have the ability to motivate and inspire a team. This is a fantastic opportunity to join one of the UK’s best loved spirit brands.
