Course facilitator: Seb Reaburn 

I come to my roles as founder at Anther Gin and Master Distiller with Top Shelf from a long history in the alcohol industry, making cocktails, serving spirits, and managing brands. In every role I have been recognised with national and international awards, including Champion Spirit Trophies, Bartender of the Year, World’s Best Cocktail Menu, Australian Whisky Producer of the Year, Australian Vodka Producer of the Year and Worlds best Vodka Producer. I have been a part of the Australian liquor industry for over two decades and in that time I have had the pleasure of operating and owning some of the most awarded bars in Australia (1806 and Heartbreaker). I‘ve enjoyed being part of building high growth independent brands including 42 Below, 666 Vodka, Anther Gin with Dervilla McGowan and now Ned, Grainshaker and Act of Treason Agave with the Top Shelf portfolio. As partner in Anther Spirits with Dervilla McGowan, we have built a dedicated distillery and cellar door in Geelong Australia. I have had the privilege over my career to design, build and commission several distilleries, working closely with safety and design consultants, to create safe workplaces that produce award winning spirits.
