Fancy picking up some part-time work – that you can do from the comfort of your sofa? New craft gin club The Local Gin Company is on the lookout for tasters to help put together its delivery packs!
The company has posted a job advert on its website for tasters in England to help select gins for its boxes. It asks that candidates ‘enjoy drinking gin served with tonic’ and can ‘provide honest feedback’ to its gin selection team. In terms of equipment, all you’ll need are a glass, ice and tonic – the gin will be provided by the team.
If selected for the panel of expert tasters, applicants will get to be among the first to sample premium dry and pink gins made in the UK. Those spirits that pass the taste test will be included in the Local Gin Company’s subscription packs, which cost £40 each and can be purchased as a one-off gift or an ongoing subscription.
The company is seeking two gin tasters from each of the eight regions it currently operates in: London, the South West, the South East, the Midlands, the East of England, the North West, the North East, and Yorkshire and the Humber.
Set to start in 2021, the job will be a regular role. While it won’t be paid, there is a fair amount in gin in it for the successful applicants!
Madelaine Power, founder of the Local Gin Company, said: “Our mission is to help people discover amazing gin being produced on their doorstep – and who better to decide whether gins make it into our boxes than the local gin community themselves?”
To apply for the role, go to www.thelocalgincompany.com/gintasters. The closing date for applications is 31 December 2020.
