Three Spirit

Apply for this Job

Three Spirit is an exciting, fast-paced and high-growth start up. We’ve been bringing plants to the party in the UK since 2018 and now we’re taking things to the next level and entering new markets. Primarily D2C, we are looking for proactive self-starters & problem-solvers to come on this journey. We need humans who aren’t afraid to hustle and who enjoy a bit of the chaos that start-up life brings!

Everything we do is about alchemy; from the plants we use in our drinks to the blending of minds, industries and expertise it takes to make them. Plant scientists, world-class bartenders, hedonists, herbalists and artists combine to create Three Spirit. This is probably why our drinks taste, feel and do everything a little differently.

Our mission is simple: we want to change the way people socialise; offering more choice and healthier options that promote connection and make not drinking more fun.
