Hi I’m Will, the Sales Manager at Stillgarden Distillery.

Will Lynch Stillgarden Distillery

I’ve worked in the drinks industry for over 17 years and have been lucky enough to have worked in some amazing teams, with Stillgarden being one of the best. From pubs to clubs, music arenas and festivals to cosy cocktail bars, one of the most important things for me has been the people I’ve worked alongside – learning from them and passing on my own experience and knowledge.

I like to think of working in a team kind of like being on a football pitch, another thing I’m super passionate about. You’ve got your manager that’s overseeing the work being done and giving you instructions to help you win; your coaches helping you learn, develop and improve; the captain on the pitch that you can always lean on when things aren’t going to plan and leads the team by example. Everyone in your team working hard to try and keep the ball going forward and trying to hit those goals.

I’ve taken this mindset back into my passion, football. Within the drinks industry I’ve been hard at work setting up an actual team of my own: Bartenders FC. Over the past 2 years with the amazing help of the passionate people around me, we now have clubs in Dublin, London, Manchester, Edinburgh and Glasgow. The collective goal being to promote positive physical and mental health for people who work in the drinks industry through football. Supporting each other on and off the pitch.

The bar industry is in itself a very close community and is definitely in a league of its own. At Stillgarden we are another team in this ever-expanding championship, but with the support of our community, we can go on to achieve some great things and maybe take home a medal or two along the way. Always working hard as a team to bring you new and exciting spirits. We’ll be kicking-off soon with Social Gin, but make sure watch this space as we’ve some serious spirit talent coming through the ranks, ready to shine on a global stage.
