Onyx Moonshine seeking ‘Taste Testers’

Connecticut liquor producer Onyx Spirits Company has announced the search for the Official Onyx Moonshine Taste Tester.

To apply for the position, applicants are asked to create an upbeat, creative one-minute video stating why they’d be the best person for the job. The applicants will then upload the video to www.YouTube.com, hash tag it with #onyxmoonshine and #bestjobinCT, and email the link to contact@onyxspirits.com by Sunday Aug. 17. Applicants are urged by Onyx to share their video with friends and family. A team at Onyx Spirits Company will then select a winner from the three videos with the most views.

The winner of the year-long position will taste every new Onyx Moonshine product before it is released to the public. They will be invited to attend exclusive Onyx events and may occasionally be sent to some of Connecticut’s best bars and restaurants as a brand ambassador.

“In some ways, we like to think of ourselves of the Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory of distilleries,” said Onyx Spirits Company co-founder Adam von Gootkin of Bristol in a press release. “We thought this would be a fun way to reward one of our most passionate and loyal customers,” he added.

When submitting each video, applicants must include their full name, address, phone number, and age. All applicants must be over 21. Upon receipt of the video, applicants will receive a confirmation email along with a detailed job description.
