We’re Recruiting For A Production Manager

About our Distillery:

Chase Distillery is a farm-based “Field to Bottle” spirits producer, producing gins and vodkas from potatoes.  We control the entire production process from mashing fermenting and distilling the raw materials to blending and bottling and finally dispatching to our customers.  


The role:

Reporting to the Managing Director, the Production Manager will have overall responsibility of production from raw materials to finished product with a mindset driven by quality, efficiency and improvement. Leading a team of 4 direct reports in distilling, bottling, engineering and procurement with a further team of 8 across distilling and bottling, this individual must be a motivator and a people person.  The role will be working closely with our Head Distiller, so whilst distilling experience is preferred it is not essential.


Primary responsibilities of the Production Manager role are:

  • Team leadership
  • Effective communication
  • Quality control
  • Process management
  • Forecast management
  • Production planning
  • Product and equipment changeovers
  • Adherence to SALSA and BRC requirements
  • Recording and traceability
  • Technical specifications and certificates
  • Shift planning


Key experience must include managing teams, planning production and automated production lines (ideally beverage).

How to apply:   Please send your CV to the Managing Director, Adrian Jones, at with the subject title ‘Production Manager’ and a covering letter explaining why you would be the right candidate for the role. Closing date for applications: 30th June 2019.
