SOME GOOD NEWS!
Many of our 504 borrowers are helping the community deal with the COVID-19 crisis. We want to share their stories.
CDC New England SBA 504 Borrower:
Berkshire Mountain Distillers, Inc.
Keep your spirits up!!!
Berkshire Mountain Distillers, Inc. is a producer of award-winning artisanal spirits including gin, rum, and vodka based in Sheffield, Massachusetts.
Located in southern Berkshire County, Berkshire Mountain Distillers has always valued community and the importance of locally-driven efforts. They wanted to help the people on the front line of the pandemic so Berkshire Mountain Distillers used their distillery to produce hand sanitizer. They have donated significant amounts to many healthcare and first responding teams including Connecticut and Massachusetts State Police, Fairview Hospital, Berkshire County Fire and Ambulance, National Ambulance, and Boston FBI.
CDC New England provided Berkshire Mountain Distillers with an SBA 504 loan to acquire land and construct its production and tour facility.
