Established in 2007, Berkshire Mountain Distillers is known across the country for their line of award-winning artisanal spirits — including Greylock Gin, Ethereal Gins, Ragged Mountain Rum, Ice Glen Vodka, Berkshire Bourbon and New England Corn Whiskey.

In summer they offer food and live music on some Saturdays, and they partner with Berkshire Busk to offer live music. They also partner with creative places across the Berkshires to invent Cultural Cocktails, a celebration of community — a collection of 19 handcrafted recipes with a spin on classic cocktails, inspired by the Berkshire arts scene. You can find them at local bars and restaurants and cultural institutions, and BMD will serve Cultural Cocktails from the distillery’s outdoor cocktail bar in Sheffield.

Founding members of the craft distiller movement, they handcraft each spirit in small batches, in Sheffield — at ‘the Berkshire’s first legal distillery since prohibition.’

They have won national praise for their flavors, including Gold Medal Awards from the Beverage Tasting Institute and San Francisco Spirits Competition and from publications like GQ, Details, New York Times, Wine Enthusiast and Jim Murray’s Whiskey Bible. And supporters of local farming and entrepreneurship, they say, they use regional ingredients in many of their recipes.
