Nearly one in ten people dreams of brewing beer or making wine as their job – the eighth most popular ideal career – according to a new survey.

As many as 9% of the 2,000 British people interviewed for the study said that making their favourite tipple for a living would be an ideal career.

Beer brewing and winemaking was a more popular dream career than pottery and farming, which were ninth and tenth in the list respectively.

Ilustrator/artist, Landscape gardener, Jewellery designer, Chef/baker, Interior designer, Musician and Photography made up the top seven dream “craft” jobs, the survey commissioned by The Balvenie whisky reveals.

When asked for their main reasons for taking up a craft, 62% of respondents claimed that they find it therapeutic.

More than half (52%) said they love learning everything there is to know about a new skill, and a further 43% simply thrive on the thrill of creating something new.

The idea of re-training in a new field was so appealing that over a third (35%) of people said they would consider quitting their job to re-train in their chosen profession – regardless of money.

Security guards (95%), IT consultants (91%) and accountants (87%) were by far the most eager to pack in the typical 9-to-5 and take up a craft career.

The study was commissioned to launch The Craftsmen’s Dinner short film series for The Balvenie Scotch brand, the first of which went live online this week.

The series features two-Michelin starred chef Michel Roux Jr, who travels across Britain to learn more about the county’s craft heritage.
