  1. Maintenance Specialist / Distiller

    Chattanooga Whiskey Company is in the process of hiring a DISTILLER/MAINTENANCE SPECIALIST for our new craft production facility in downtown Chattanooga, TN - Outside Magazine’s two-time “BEST TOWN EVER” winner. This facility has been operating since late March of 2017 and has already put away over 600 barrels of whiskey to date. The Vendome distilling system is comprised of a 12 inch, 30 foot column still with a doubler, beer well, 3000 gallon cooker and 4 x 3000 gallon fermenters. Our distilling team lives by the phrase “Rules are Good, Change Them”, so your attitude and training should reflect a respect for tradition but also an openness and willingness to innovate and continuously improve. Every day we try to do better than the last – which includes everything from the way you organize your workspace to how you clean a tank, to the way you approach building or executing a recipe. We want to build the best bourbon and whiskey possible, and our people (and their attitudes) are the most important ingredient to that recipe. We currently offer 1816 – an 8 year old, award winning, world-class, traditional bourbon blended and bottled by yours truly. In August 2017 we released the first batch of our single batch Experimental Series from our 2.5 year-old Experimental facility and tasting room on Market St. Some of those recipes have already "graduated" up to our larger facility on Riverfront Parkway.

Distiller responsibilities include all aspects of grain to glass production of whiskey: • Receipt of raw materials • Milling, mashing and fermentation management • Transferring of mash, fermentations, high wines, etc. • Distillation on continuous column still • Barrel filling, dumping, proofing • Bottling, packaging and shipping/receiving • Guiding occasional tours of the distillery • Inventory management and materials ordering • Single barrel micro distillery activities and shifts Maintenance-focused responsibilities include but not limited to: • Developing a maintenance schedule on crucial equipment as well as maintaining clean and well-stocked maintenance tools and parts storage. • Performing facility breakdown and preventative maintenance tasks for all electrical, plumbing and mechanical systems related to the distilling operation as well as those related to distillery functionality. These include but not limited to: o Cooling tower o Pumps and motors o Boiler o Chiller o Heat exchangers o Compressed air systems o HVAC o Electrical components – drives, transmitters, etc. o Plumbing components – water (city, cooling tower, chilled) • Building, welding, painting, and plumbing activities related to improving existing systems • Teaming with other production staff to encourage proper use and care of all equipment. Candidates should be physically fit, able to lift 55lbs and be able to work flexible hours and shifts. Compensation package will be commensurate with education and experience; benefits included. Start date is TBD. Reports to Head of Production and Maintenance and Head Distiller Please email jobs(at)tnstillhouse.com to submit your resume and cover letter. www.chattanoogawhiskey.com
