Commitment to Community

In normal times, we feel that it is the responsibility of all companies, large and small, to be involved and support their communities when possible and to build partnerships with other local organizations. In that spirit, we have partnered with a wide variety of non-profit organizations through donations of time and effort, money, the creation of signature cocktails for fundraising events, merchandise, and in many other ways.

Unfortunately, the past year has been exceptionally challenging for us, and we receive far more requests for donations than we could possibly fulfill. We are a small company, and a small team, and we were closed for more than 6 months in 2020, so we are in the process of rebuilding.

2021 Donations and Sponsorships – Welcome Weekends

Because of the challenges of the past year and the rebuilding process we are undergoing, we are only offering one type of support in 2021, which we call Welcome Weekends. For a specific weekend this year that you and we select together, we will host your organization, and we will donate to your group 20% of all pre-tax purchases made by people who mention your organization when they come to our tasting room on that particular weekend.  This program is good for us, and also good for you, if your supporters are the kinds of folks who’d be interested in coming to a distillery and hanging out for some cocktails, spirits and good times.

If you would like to discuss planning a Welcome Weekend for your group this year, please send us an email at donations (at) northshoredistillery.com with some weekends that work for you, as well as a description of your group and its purpose. Or, you can send us something by mail at:

Thanks for following our guidelines and understanding where we’re coming from this year.
