At BrewDog Distilling Co. our mission starts and finishes with liquid quality.  Innovation and experimentation are two of our most vital founding values and are at the beating heart of absolutely every drop of liquid that we distil. 

We believe in craftsmanship & transparency,  It's taken us 5 years of dedication to create our vodkas, gins and rums but we're only just getting started.  Our next venture will take us into expanding our whisky operation where we will be upsizing our production to 2000casks per year.

We are authentic, unafraid and passionate in our pursuit of incredible tasting spirits.  Whether that be distilling 28 tonnes of fresh molasses to turn into our delicious rum or mash filtering a variety of different grains to create our whisky we take our craft very seriously.

We exist to bring honest and charismatic spirits to the people and because we expect great things from you, we give great things back. 

HOP STOCK | We believe in sharing our success with our crew and have a unique Hop Stock benefit for our salaried team. That means you share in our success, and if we grow strongly, we win together.

PROFIT SHARE | Via our ground-breaking Unicorn Fund, we give away 10% of our profits, to our amazing crew members, every single year. We wouldn’t be able to do it without you so it’s only right we share the success together.

PENSION ENHANCEMENT | We increase our contributions to your pension up to 10% of your salary so together we can properly invest in your future. And, since the statutory amount all businesses pay is 3%, our decision to pay above that shows we’re taking your future seriously.

4-WEEK SABBATICAL| After every 5 years here you will receive an additional 4 weeks off to spend doing whatever you want.

STAFF DISCOUNT | 25% off in bars, 30% off online and 50% off BrewDog Merch to fill up your fridge and your wardrobe* (*don’t put your hoody in the fridge though)

ADDITIONAL HOLIDAY DAYS | For every full year completed up to your 5th year with us we add on one additional day’s leave above and beyond your initial entitlement. You therefore get an extra full week off at 5 years every single year onward to rest up.

BEER TRAINING | We love beer and we want you to love beer too, so we’ll support you through the internationally-recognised Cicerone qualifications, so you can love it almost as much as we do. We’ll also pay you more for each level you pass.

AND A LOT MORE | Okay, deep breath… enhanced sick pay, healthcare, life assurance, high street retail discounts, employee assistance programmes, enhanced family friendly policies around maternity and paternity leave, pawternity leave, DE+I and crew forum groups and an allowance to quality check some beers each month!

We’re also the world’s first carbon negative beer business. We’re focused on making sure that we, and future generations, have a planet to brew great beer on. Our industry leading techniques help us create and deliver unique beer whilst doing our bit (and others’) for the environment.
