Big Machine Distillery is producing more than its namesake vodka these days, as its Nashville neighbors fight to stay healthy. Beginning 3/27, hand sanitizer crafted at the distillery’s Lynnville and Berry Hill locations will be donated to local first responders – police officers, EMT and firefighters – in a time when vital supplies are low. Using the World Health Organization’s formula to ensure compliance with industry safety and efficacy standards, the sanitizer is 80% alcohol and manufactured in various sizes (50 ml, 100 ml, 375 ml and 55 gallon drums).

This morning, first responders from the Nashville area's Berry Hill Police Department, Hendersonville Fire Department, Ashland City Police Department, Belle Meade Police Department, Gallatin Police Department, Nashville Fire Department, Franklin Fire Department, Dickson County Sheriff’s Department and Brentwood Police Department visited the Big Machine Distillery & Tavern, where they were gifted dozens of 50 ml bottles of the hand sanitizer to distribute among their teams and communities.

“It’s amazing to see a company like Big Machine and its employees and owners set profits and publicity aside for the better good of the community,” said Berry Hill Police Chief Tim Coleman. Scott Borchetta, President and CEO of Big Machine Label Group and owner of the Big Machine Distillery & Tavern along with his brother Mark Borchetta, EVP of Big Machine Distillery, were both on site to personally load hand sanitizer into the first responder vehicles.

“We feel fortunate to be in a position to serve our community during these challenging times. The ability to tap into the same base spirit we use to make our Big Machine Vodka has allowed us to quickly make hand sanitizer available for both our first responders and customers,” shared Scott Borchetta.

Complimentary 50 ml bottles of the sanitizer are available for the Tavern's curb-side pickup and delivery customers. Larger quantities can also be purchased at both the Nashville and Lynnville locations, or ordered online here. Their complete breakfast, lunch and dinner menus are now available, as well as their own brands of bottled spirits, cocktails and canned beer, via DoorDash.

Additionally, the distillery is currently hiring workers for hand sanitizer production and delivery service. For more information or to apply, go here.
