The Search for a Rosebank Distillery Manager
Rosebank… our sleeping giant reawakens!
Rosebank was revered by whisky connoisseurs the world over as the ‘King of the Lowlands’. There was a beautiful juxtaposition in one of the lightest, most floral Scotch whiskies ever, being distilled in Scotland’s heavy industry central belt. This contrast was reflected in the unique production technique of marrying worm tub condensers and triple distillation… resulting in light/full contrast in flavour, making it a category defining Lowland single malt Scotch whisky.
The early 1990s were a dark time for many in the industry as global whisky sales were in sharp decline. As a casualty of this era, Rosebank then sadly closed its doors in 1993. Fast forward however to 2017… we acquired the site and brand, and wholeheartedly committed to breathe new life into the buildings and their surrounding community! Our mission is to revive the distillery, but our interests also extend beyond its walls. We are delighted to be able to support the regeneration agenda, bringing tourism and not to mention great whisky back to the beating heart of Falkirk!
As we are currently in the throes of construction, now is the time for us to recruit our new distillery manager. This role will report to our Group Distillation Director and is a critical appointment for Ian Macleod Distillers not least Rosebank itself. The distillery manager will be the production leader for our entire Rosebank site, and the success of the production at Rosebank will rest squarely on this person’s shoulders… what an exciting opportunity for an experienced distillery manager to bring back to life this beautiful spirit.
Working collaboratively with and through other colleagues and teams, the distillery manager must be an experienced distillery manager with not only phenomenal production skills and leadership, but an appetite and desire to support bringing personality and a human ‘face’, to our exquisite brand. We are looking for someone who is highly experienced in working in true partnership, ‘hand in glove’ style with brand managers, marketing, sales and visitor centres. We really are looking for a truly special person… in fact you could say we are looking for nothing but the finest blend of ingredients in terms of passion, craftmanship, innovation and lots of relevant experience!
