Join Us + Celebrate 15 years

Berkshire Mountain Distillers, a community-focused business in support of regional ingredients and the Berkshires’ first legal distillery since prohibition, will commemorate its 15-year anniversary this year with a series of programs and events.

BMD began on an old apple farm in Sheffield, a right-to-farm village in the southwest corner of Massachusetts known for endless rows of corn and Revolutionary-era uprisings. In 2007, Chris Weld founded BMD on this simple farmstead on East Mountain, at the former site of granite-based Berkshire Sodium Springs, circa 1900. Water from these pristine springs is still used in formulating our products joining other locally sourced high-quality ingredients to produce one-of-a-kind Berkshire spirits.

In 2014, BMD moved to a new production facility in Sheffield where our hometown team continues the handcrafted spirit-making tradition with great passion for the art and science of beverage-making. We support local businesses and community-based non-profit organizations, and are excited to welcome visitors to our production facility, tasting room, store and greenhouse, plus our new covered outdoor pavilion surrounded by the beautiful Berkshire landscape.
