About The Position
Wigle Whiskey is hell bent on creating a vital, educated community around the highest quality, most inventive, bursting-with-terroir fermented and distilled products in the world. We make high quality spirits from the best local ingredients, treat one another as family and customers as friends. We invest in our communities to support the agricultural, social and economic systems of which we are apart.
The recently expanded tasting room and restaurant at Wigle Whiskey celebrate craft spirits and local whiskey history. We are excited to expand our team with a part-time bar back role. The position’s overall responsibility is to ensure bartenders have everything they need during service. These responsibilities include, but are not limited to, assisting with bar preparation, maintaining a clean bar area, washing glassware and bar utensils, pouring flights, and informing and educating customers on our menu and products, all in a timely manner. Physical duties include, but are not limited to, consistent movement throughout the restaurant and moving boxes of product and supplies. This position may have the opportunity to grow into a bartender role if the employee exhibits good bar practices.
The Wigle Whiskey kitchen aims to produce the highest quality local American fair with an emphasis on technique and execution. Much like our spirits, we will draw influence from the diversity of the region and take advantage of the wonderful produce and livestock that South-Western Pennsylvania has to offer.
The safety of our employees and customers are of the highest priority. We have set in place extensive health and safety standards that all employees must uphold.
Please note that as a manufacturer of spirits we are unable to hire an individual who will simultaneously work for another licensee.
Wigle Whiskey and Threadbare Cider & Mead are proud to be equal opportunity workplaces.
