Spirit of Community
We have always been committed to our community, and feel that it is the responsibility of all companies, large and small, to be involved and support their communities when possible. In that spirit, we have partnered with a variety of organizations through donations of time and effort, money, the creation of signature cocktails for fundraising events, merchandise, and in many other ways.
Unfortunately, we receive far more requests for donations than we could possibly fulfill. In an effort to maximize the resources and impact of our sponsorships and donations, we have committed ourselves to focusing on one particular theme each year.
Our theme for 2013 is supporting those organizations who provide services to the neediest members of our local community. As such, we have partnered with a local homeless shelter, a local legal aid group and a local animal shelter, among others.
Requesting a Donation or Sponsorship
If you are involved with an organization whose mission fits into our current theme and would like to talk to us about getting involved, please feel free to contact us. For us to consider your request, you must send us a proposal telling us about your charity/event, which includes:
- a concise description of the event
- what type of donation is being requested
- how the donation will be used
- the date of your event
- number of attendees expected
- and any other details you would like us to know.
This information can be emailed to donations (at) northshoredistillery.com
Or sent to:

Donation requests will be reviewed on the first business day of each quarter. Please plan ahead. Please do not call or stop by to make donation requests, we are busy making spirits!
