    Good day to all, I would like to inform the ADI community that I am seeking employment as an Assistant Distiller and willing to relocate from Northern California.

I am looking to learn everything I can in all aspects of production from, whiskey, bourbon, rum, gin, brandy's, cognac, liquors, etc. Since 2015, I have been apprenticing with my father, Master Distiller and International Consultant Hubert Germain-Robin, absorbing information and learning from his knowledge of distilled spirits and the aging process, If you or know anybody who is perhaps looking for an Assistant Distiller please pass this message along and I will gladly email you my Resume for more information. I hope this message finds you in good 'Spirits'. Thank you for your time! Sincerely, ~ Raphaël Germain-Robin

  14. Bently Heritage (previously Nevada Heritage) is looking for a full-time Master Distiller. This is an exciting opportunity to join an innovative project from the ground up as we launch one of the first distilleries in the state of Nevada. OUR STORY: NEVADA HERITAGE, our upcoming craft distillery, will live up to its name by preserving the great traditions and heritage of Nevada and the Bently name, while stepping boldly into the future. Like the distilleries of a bygone era, we’ll use only local ingredients: Winter Rye, wheat, barley, corn and other grains will be sustainably and naturally grown by our sister company, Bently Ranch. The ranch — just like Old Minden — operates in the cowboy tradition but with a keen eye on sustainability, the latest technologies, and the future. The same care and attention that spirit making requires will be poured into the renovation of the Minden Flour Milling Company Building. Earning a LEED Platinum certification isn’t an easy job for a historic building, but we have never shied away from a challenge. We boldly let the world know we had every intention of turning one of San Francisco’s most beautiful properties, the then old Federal Reserve Bank building into a LEED Silver beacon for the future. We delivered and then some. To say we are repurposing this incredible historic building is not accurate. We are restoring a grain processing facility into a grain processing facility. Only this use is going to be a lot more fun. Our goal isn’t just to produce artisanal-quality spirits, but to set a new standard for sustainable production; innovating an industry while revitalizing the craft distilling tradition. Nevada Heritage is the impetus of a farm-to-bar revolution, and will be the first estate spirit craft distillery. Farm-to-bar we are growing, producing, and bottling everything in-house under our watchful eyes to ensure only the very best distilled spirits in the world. We are blessed with the cleanest, most pure water in the country. Minden Water Works has never had to treat their water. Due to the naturally occuring aquifer and filtration process, Minden is provided with water so pure it’s better than treated water right out of the ground. In fact, the original well aptly called Well Number One will have a dedicated line running straight to our distillery. We have a beautiful building that truly is a work of art. We will have the highest of quality and most intriguing spirits ever created farm-to-bar. There’s Passion? Check. Food? Check. Drink? Check. Stay tuned for updates on the progress of Nevada Heritage. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- MASTER DISTILLER Summary: The Minden Flour Milling Company building, a National Registered Historic Place, will be converted into a craft distillery named Nevada Heritage. The new distillery will be one of the first operating in the state of Nevada since Assembly Bill 153 was passed earlier this year, allowing local distilleries to operate. This puts Nevada Heritage in notable company with fellow Silver State artisans as well as landing Minden at the forefront of a burgeoning new industry. Nevada Heritage will live up to its name by reintroducing the best traditions of the Old West, while embracing New West values such as sustainability and premium quality. The Master Distiller will be responsible for developing the Nevada Heritage collection, planning and executing distillation operations, overseeing production, and managing inventory. With support from Marketing and Sales teams, the Master Distiller will also showcase and advertise our spirits to raise brand awareness and build relationships with local and national media sources, all while complying with relevant federal, state and local regulations. Responsibilities include: • The selection of spirits for the purpose of blending. • Analysis of spirits and blends as per quality norms and standards. • Implementation and overseeing quality control measures for wet goods. • Packaging quality control. • Maintain appropriate records (quality control, excise etc.) • Set standards for raw material and product quality & auditing regularly to maintain quality levels. • Day to day activity monitoring of all testing labs, production sites & finished goods inventories. Requirements: • Entrepreneurial spirit. • B.A. degree, preferably in chemistry or a related field. • Brewing and distilling MSc Certificate. • 5-10 years experience as a qualified Master Distiller or Master Blender. • Experience in creating various spirits, including: single malt whiskey, bourbon, vodka, absinthe, and gin. • Strong relationship management skills. • Strong financial and analytical skills; keen business acumen. You can apply directly online HERE. Let me know if you have questions!

  17. I was wondering if distillers with some experience would comment a little on the day to day life of a distiller at an established distillery (not a startup). I am currently entertaining a number of job opportunities at the moment, some of which include positions as a distiller. I know a bit about the industry I've been involved in the past few years (geology: good money, lots of travel, fairly stable) but I'm realizing that I don't know as much about the real nitty gritty life of a distiller. In trying to convince my wife that this is a reasonable career move I've run up against a number of questions from her and from myself: 1. Are the hours reasonable enough that I could see my wife during daylight hours regularly each week? 2. Can distillers have healthy social/religious/family lives? 3. Can distillers expect to receive pay raises commensurate with experience, age, growth of the distillery, etc? 4. Were your immediate and extended family accepting of your career choice? 5. If you work hard is distilling a "stable job"? Basically, what is the life of a distiller at an established-profitable distillery like? I have had opportunities doing hard manual labor (field work, farm work, 25 gallon scale homebrewing) so that doesn't scare me, I guess I'm just more interested in how this career can affect other parts of your life. In the coming years are there going to be more opportunities for people with distilling experience (as startup distilleries become established and profitable)? A multitude of honest answers would be great! Additionally, as a shameless plug, I wanted to mention that I'm having a "sordid" naming contest for a cocktail I cooked up the other day on my blog. Read the post, play the comment game, and the best name gets a free bottle of MB Rolland's Kentucky Mint Julep Liqueur. gabriel
