TRUE Syrups & Garnishes Summer 2016 Internship

TRUE Syrups & Garnishes is a craft cocktail ingredient company based in Washington, DC. Founded in November 2014, we are a small business with two products: Authentic Tonic Syrup and Authentic Grenadine Syrup. We produce, bottle, label, and distribute our tonic syrup and grenadine syrup within the DC/MD/VA area, and our expanding business needs help growing!

As a TRUE intern, you will be exposed to the world of craft cocktails from the ground up, and will work hand-in-hand with the Head of Production and the Founder. The intern would assist the Head of Production in his weekly tasks as well as several administrative tasks. We are a small company and rapidly growing and we need help to bring our company to the next level! This summer we will be launching and researching new products, participating in special events, and continuing to expand our reach both outside and within the DC area. Given our small size, the intern will expected to be flexible and participate in tasks outside of the specific job scope, and will also have the ability to shape their experience into something incredible. You will be able to have a hands-on experience with a new company and make a real difference. We are looking for someone to work 15-20 hours/week, with the occasional weekend event. For more information, check out our website at www.truesyrups.com.  You can apply by emailing Matt Demma at matt@truesyrups.com or by visiting the following link: http://bit.ly/1S2WSRU.
