Experienced distiller in Portland seeking new opportunies

Recommended Posts

I am currently an Assistant Distiller at two distilleries in Portland: a leading craft distillery producing multiple mainstream spirits categories, and a producer of fruit brandies, liqueurs, and grappa. Between these two roles I have developed a broad range of skills applicable to the entire distillation process, including recipe creation and mash production, fermentation and distillation, bottling and tasting room sales, and cleaning, cleaning, and cleaning.

I’m looking for a new position with room for growth. Though I’m most experienced with distilling, I also love beer and brewing. My interests are far-reaching, and I’m particularly keen on collaborative projects with other local producers, agriculturally-focused sourcing, and quality-oriented production. I’m willing to do a virtually unlimited amount of hard, tedious labor (see: making grappa), but I’m really seeking learning opportunities. In other words, I’m not interested in a full-time bottling gig if there are no development opportunities to go along with it.

I also have a background in accounting and finance, and though I’ve left the corporate world behind I retain a deep-seated enthusiasm for spreadsheets and budget analysis. I’m also pretty well versed on lean manufacturing and management techniques in the industrial setting.

I have an open mind about what kind of position would be a good fit. Part-time work would be ok, and so would a position outside the Portland metropolitan area (but within driving distance). If you’re looking for a knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and focused person to lead or support a beer, spirits, or winemaking operation, get in touch. I’d love to hear from you and talk about how I can help.
