Our Company:


Manatawny Still Works is looking to expand its team with a full time hourly Assistant Distiller position. Manatawny opened its doors in early 2014.  Since that time, we have experienced an overwhelming response from the public and we are poised for further growth.   At Manatawny, our focus is grain to bottle whiskey, but we also produce rum, gin and a GNS vodka.  We utilize a 40bbl brew house at the brewery across the street and our stills are sized accordingly.  We have a continuous stripping column and a hybrid pot still.
