Setting the scene…

We are Ian Macleod Distillers (IMD), a fourth generation family owned and managed whisky and spirits business operating across the UK and internationally. We are producers of multi award winning premium whisky and gin with many other whiskies and spirits as part of our exquisite portfolio. Crafting Spirits With Passion, is what we do best… not only are we brand builders, but we are also producers, distributors, and suppliers in B2B and B2C channels. We are a brand led, successful family business with our spirits (people and brands), at our very core. Driven by passion, enthusiasm, and solid business values, we are a business you will want to take a look at!

Our new retail adventure with Edinburgh airport has begun…

Doors to manual and cross check… something exciting has now landed! Our brand new Edinburgh Gin retail outlet is now airside in Edinburgh Airport!

For the very first time, shoppers in Edinburgh Airport are able to interact with our wonder-filled brand in an exquisite, brand new retail outlet experience directly in the airport. We are delighted to have entered into a new phase of partnership with Avolta (formally known as Dufry), as we formally launch our unique Edinburgh Gin Boutique within the newly refurbished World Duty Free store in Edinburgh Airport. This is an exciting development for our Edinburgh Gin brand in this key strategic retail outlet.

We are looking for team members to join our small established team, individuals who are professional and highly experienced retail experts, ideally combined with having a genuine passion for our Edinburgh Gin brand. Anyone interested in this opportunity should have oodles of individual charisma and is naturally at their best with consumers on a face to face basis.

The airport and our Edinburgh Gin boutique is open for business and we are looking for team members to proactively engage with early morning travellers and those returning late into the day, promoting and enthusing all things Edinburgh Gin with our consumers and brand advocates. Shift patterns may vary with potential early 4am starts and late finishes as standard within the airport operational hours. If you are successful then you will join a very small team of like-minded individuals who together will be the formative force working on this special partnership and contributing to the overall success of our new Edinburgh Gin retail experience in the airport.

If this doesn’t entice you then we will also offer you a highly competitive salary of £12.60 per hour and an additional travel allowance along with access to a wide range of company benefits associated with our roles including; a generous employer contribution to pension; life assurance, income protection, private medical insurance cover (service levels dependent); company bonus; product allowances and product discounts; paid volunteering days; holiday buying via salary sacrifice; plethora of online shopping discounts; gym membership discounts; and access to a wealth of wellbeing platforms, related support and general information sources.
