Berkshire Mountain Distillers

Berkshire Mountain Distillers is an authentic, regionally focused maker of small-batch, award-winning craft spirits. One of the founding members of the craft distiller movement celebrating 15 years in business, Berkshire Mountain Distillers supports local agriculture, using local ingredients in many of its award-winning, handcrafted spirits.

This summer, BMD’s Cultural Cocktails program will kick off Berkshire Mountain Distillers’ 15th anniversary celebration. Engineered to unite and honor local partners, at a time when many have suffered due to the pandemic, this tribute to the arts centers around classic craft cocktail recipes created by local bartenders, and inspired by and named in partnership with Berkshire cultural institutions. From May through October — they’ll bolster connectivity while generating regional excitement across local bars, venues, restaurants and arts organizations. Visit BMD’s Cultural Cocktails site for more info and ask for one at your favorite local establishment!

A Valued WAMC Underwriter
Underwriters are businesses that provide vital financial support to the station. Many of these underwriters have detailed, article-length material that they would like to share, a service that we provide through our Underwriter Spotlights section.
