This role focuses on the visitor experience - welcoming guests to the distillery and delivering engaging and interesting tours as part of the busy tours programme.

This role is a permanent full-time position.

You must embody a can-do attitude and be confident at speaking in front of groups of people, with a real passion for delivering excellent customer service.
