Are you an assistant distiller looking for a promotion?

Recommended Posts

I am consulting on a new distillery in New Jersey. It will be located in northern New Jersey near Rockaway.

The primary investor is handling the capital and financing for the new craft distillery, but needs to hire a head distiller.

This is a distillery that is very well funded and will not be your typical craft distillery in terms of size.

It will be on the larger end of the scale.

We are preparing to hire our head distiller with a projected start date of September 1st.

Are you an assistant distiller and looking for a promotion? Are you ready to take your skills to the next level?

If so, contact me via PM or email.

I will be posting a full job description in a few days. But feel free to send us your resume if you are interested.
