    Experienced Distiller

    I am a seasoned distiller with 4 years under my belt and I am looking for growth at a new venue. I am looking for a Head Distiller position or a higher up position than assistant distilling. I have much experience with larger and smaller scale craft distilling from start to finish of the process, with a focus on whiskies and syrup based alcohols. I have done literally everything in a distillery from grain to bottle. I have helped to develop and grow a now flourishing distillery and am now ready to spread my wings, learn more and take on a new world. I have created and modified recipes for the distillery I worked for as well as for other distilleries under contract. I have made recipes increase their yield by 175% without changing grains or flavor of recipes, as well as managing employees, representing distilleries publically, creating huge online SOP / knowledge databases. I have a considerable amount of pride in making what I put my heart into and making the best spirits. I also have the knowledge to help your distillery with recipes, management, become more efficient and everything in between. I am willing to relocate to the right fit and am very free at the moment. Feel free to contact me at whiskeysmithy@gmail.com, I will happily get you my resume, recommendations (all which should impress) and cover letter. Thank you for your time, I look forward to working with you.

    Keeping Batches Consistent

    Hi I understand that there is a good amount of both art and science in the role of a head distiller. Which brings me to ask about the methods that distillers utilise to keep batches of their gin consistent over time, in particular, accounting for a different supply of botanicals each season. Indeed, I know that gin recipes are based on essential oil content. But what is the most common and easy way to measure the essential oil content of your botanicals in order to determine the weight to use? . Also, if anyone would be so kind as to share their experiences of rectifying each botanical individually (and then blending), in comparison to one-shot production, that would be fantastic! Thank you very much in advance for your help. All answers are appreciated. David from England.
