Jeffco Open for Business Spotlight: Ballmer Peak Distillery
As Jeffco community members look to safely support local businesses, Jefferson County will be highlighting businesses that are taking creative or innovative precautions to emphasize the safety of their employees and customers. Learn more and nominate a business to be featured at www.jeffco.us/4067.
Today’s featured business is Ballmer Peak Distillery. Located in Lakewood, Ballmer Peak is a local distillery that produces Australian style gin, silver rum, spiced rum and un-aged whiskey. They also enjoy playing around with smaller batch projects and mixing up creative drinks to be enjoyed onsite, or packaged to-go. Ballmer Peak was recently nominated for this year’s Best New Distillery by USA Today and 10 Best (you can vote for them at https://www.10best.com/…/ballmer-peak-distillery-lakewood-…/).
For months during the COVID-19 outbreak, they manufactured much-needed hand sanitizer for the local community. Jefferson County applauds Ballmer Peak for emphasizing public safety! Visit them at 12437 W. Alameda Pkwy, Lakewood, CO 80228 or online at https://ballmerpeakdistillery.com/.
Actions taken to emphasize safety:
• Manufactured hand sanitizer for the community – roughly 90% of the hand sanitizer was given away at no charge!
• Anyone was welcome to pick up 4 oz of hand sanitizer on designated days during the shutdown.
• Larger amounts of hand sanitizer was provided to first responders, healthcare workers and senior care facilities.
• Purchased several picnic tables and garden chairs, set them up socially distanced the parking lot.
• Masks are required when customers are not seated at a table.
The goal of the Jeffco Open for Business Spotlight campaign is to highlight businesses, while making our community feel comfortable that they can safely visit these businesses. We look forward to highlighting businesses that meet the following criteria:
1. Following public health guidelines
2. Taking action to emphasize the safety of employees and customers
3. Creating an atmosphere that will make customers feel confident that they can safely visit the business.
