Big Machine Distillery Aiding Nashville Community By Producing Hand Sanitizer

Big Machine Distillery is now producing hand sanitizer at the distillery’s Lynnville and Berry Hill locations that they are donating to local first responders – police officers, EMTs, and firefighters – in a time when vital supplies are low.

Last Friday (3/27) first responders from the 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.

Using the World Health Organization’s formula to ensure compliance with safety and efficacy standards, the sanitizer is 80% alcohol and manufactured in various sizes up to 55 gallon drums.

“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 in regards to the lack of hand sanitizer available.

“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 President and CEO of Big Machine Label Group and owner of the Big Machine Distillery & Tavern Scott Borchetta.

Complimentary 50 ml bottles of the sanitizer are available for their curb-side pickup and delivery customers, and larger quantities can also be purchased at both the Nashville and Lynnville locations or ordered online at Additionally, the tavern’s complete breakfast, lunch and dinner menus are now available and customers can order online and via DoorDash.

The distillery is also hiring workers for hand sanitizer production and delivery service, and more information on applying can be found at
