NASHVILLE, TN (Friday, March 27, 2020) – BIG MACHINE DISTILLERY is producing more than its namesake platinum-filtered premium vodka as neighbors fight to stay healthy. Beginning today, 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 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 in regards to the lack of hand sanitizer available.

Scott Borchetta, President and CEO of Big Machine Label Group and owner of the Big Machine Distillery & Tavern along with his brother Mark Borchetta, Executive Vice President 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 their curb-side pickup and delivery customers. Larger quantities can also be purchased at both the Nashville and Lynnville locations or ordered online at Additionally, their complete breakfast, lunch and dinner menus featuring craft burgers, chicken & waffles and loaded fries are now available as well as their own brands of bottled spirits, signature cocktails and canned beer. Customers can order on online and via DoorDash. 
Additionally, the distillery is hiring workers for hand sanitizer production and delivery service. For more information to apply, please visit
