Distiller Wanted

What happens to a dream deferred?
~ Langston  Hughes

I enjoy writing, I truly do. Yet in idle moments, I mull over other career paths, things that might've been — or may yet be. Sausage maker and distiller are two that regularly surface. Generally, I suppress these thoughts. Fine as avocations, but vocations? I'd probably lose a hand or burn off all my hair. 

Then, of course, calls for distillers often come my way and set those mullings in motion again. Crown Valley Winery south of St. Louis put out such a call recently. I'm committed to San Diego, but for a distiller in — or willing to relocate to — Missouri, here's a job opportunity:
New start-up Distillery is looking for creative, energetic, team building leader, located in Southeast Missouri, only one hour drive from St. Louis. Applicant must have a minimum of 3 years of experience or have a qualified degree in Distilling. Products to be produced using a Carl Christian pot still with a filling capacity of 119 gallons with 2 side columns one 21 plates and the other with 5 plates. Applicant has rare experience to be involved with a diverse established manufacture of beer and wine with state of the art equipment and facilities. Position includes competitive salary, health insurance and possibility of local housing. All applicants may send resume to
I've got no connections to Crown Valley Winery, but I do like the way they're thinking.
