Sipsmith was started in 2009 by our founders Fairfax and Sam with the mission to open the first copper distillery in London in almost 200 years and bring London dry gin back to its home. Since then we’ve grown tremendously, acquiring new stills and moving premises to a new site in Chiswick, West London. We’ve recently joined forces with Beam Suntory, a company which values heritage and craftsmanship as much as we do, and now sit alongside global brands such as Jim Beam, Courvoisier and Yamazaki. We now need an extra pair of hands to help craft our spirits with uncompromising quality.
We are looking for a practical and enthusiastic individual to work in our growing distilling team. The perfect candidate will be someone who is superbly organised, with strong communication skills and who can stay calm under pressure. The successful candidate will start off learning under the guidance of our distillery manager but will progress to distilling on shift as part of our production team to meet our growing requirements.
