Time Out: Matt Felgate, Owner of The Lincoln Distillery

306

The weekend has come back around again, and that means another ‘Time Out’. This week’s questions are answered by Matt Felgate, Owner of The Lincoln Distillery, who would like to be able to freeze time…

What is the first thing you do to get the weekend started?                                           Pour myself a Lincoln Gin, of course!

What is your hobby?                                                                                                         My wife and I have a 4 month old son, so we still have the late nights but they now include less nightclubs and more boxsets. I enjoy taking us out on daytrips too, to visit all that Lincolnshire has to offer.

What is your favourite movie?                                                                                         Pulp Fiction – I love the monologues, the 70s influences, humour, and the way it doesn’t play in chronological order. It’s a must see.

If you hadn’t been successful at what you do, what would you be doing instead as a career?                                                                                                                           I had a previous career in the military and would consider a position with a private security firm.

If you could have any superpower what would it be?                                                   To freeze time. Because I’m late for everything.

What is your favourite genre of music?                                                                           I listen to everything from the 50s to now. My current playlist is Blues but it’ll switch to 70s rock, 80s synth and late 90s dance music and a lot of hip hop, depending on the mood.

If you could travel to any moment in time where would you go?                                   I wouldn’t go back. I’m a strong believer that every decision we make, good or bad, has made us who we are today. I would go into the future – I’d be interested to learn of new technologies, and see what that generation thought of us.
