My name is Jeff Bland and for the last six years I've been the Head Cider Maker at Spire Mountain Ciders in Olympia, WA. Prior to that I was the Assistant Winemaker at McCrea Cellars in Rainier, WA.
Two years ago I took a distilling course with Rusty Figgins via the Spirits Institute Puget Sound ( SIPS ). I've since done a nine day stint working on a Koethe Still at Grapeworks Distilling in Woodinville,WA. I'd like to take my career into spirit production. I'm willing to relocate for the right opportunity with the right people. If anyone would be interested in taking on someone who wants to learn and works hard, I'd love to talk to you.
