As we’re hiring, we wanted to tell you what it is like to be a part of the Three Little Words family. If you like the sound of it, we might have the perfect role for you...

We are passionate about creating long-term, rewarding careers in spirits and hospitality, so no matter what area or role you are in, we are always investing in seeing our team flourish.

We’ve got our office, bar, kitchen, distillery and production areas - meaning we have roles in multiple disciplines. From bartending to distilling and warehouse roles to marketing, we’re keen to help people who are passionate about spirits and hospitality develop the skills they care most about.

Meet, Hendo, , He joined us as a senior bartender as he was excited to join the hospitality industry and work with Manchester Gin. During the initial lockdown, he wanted to try and experience a new role with us while developing new skills, which has led to him becoming our master distiller, and gin school manager.
