Headframe Spirits is proud to announce that we are joining the portfolio of Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits in their Mountain States Region. This region includes Montana, Idaho, Utah, and Wyoming.
As a small craft distillery in Butte, Montana, we love to share our history, our spirits and the history of the place we call home. Headframe Spirits opened its doors in 2012 with a vision from owners John and Courtney McKee. Their dream included not only production of great spirits, but also the production of distillation equipment for distilleries across the continent. We take our name from the headframes that lowered miners deep into the earth in search of the copper that would electrify the nation. Our current lineup consists of seven different spirits which honor that legacy while looking towards Butte’s future. We firmly believe in giving back to our community, supporting our friends and neighbors, and sharing stories over a great cocktail. In 2017, we were proud to become a Certified B Corporation; currently, one of only 7 organizations in Montana to be recognized as such. Today our spirits are distributed across 18 states with over 5600 cases sold in 2017 in Montana alone. Owner Courtney McKee is excited about this new chapter for the company, “Headframe Spirits is proud to be working with Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits. Southern has recognized both the level of quality Headframe brings to the table in our spirits portfolio as well as our capacity for production growth, owed in large part to the unique distillation equipment we manufacture and utilize. We appreciate the sales talent Southern possesses and we look forward to great things from this relationship for both our businesses.”
Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits is North America’s largest wine and spirits distributor, and preeminent data insights company for alcoholic beverages. With roots dating back to the early 20th Century, the Company now has operations in 44 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, Canada, and the Caribbean, and employs more than 20,000 team members. In addition to serving their customers world-class wine and spirits, they also serve their communities by supporting local and regional causes across North America.
This is an exciting opportunity for us to more broadly share our story and the story of Butte. We are so proud to have a production capacity that will meet the distribution capabilities of Southern Glazer’s team. This is a “Big Damn Deal” and we are excited for what the future holds and the possibility of growing the footprint of craft distilleries in the region. Cheers to moving forward!
