Giving Back

It Starts at the Distillery

At Durham Distillery, we ensure all employees are provided with a living wage and full-time employees receive benefits. In addition, we strive to create a work environment that is equitable and safe for all our employees. In return, we are proud to have them provide the same safe and equitable environment for all our guests.  

Giving of Our Expertise

At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we found ourselves in a position to convert our production facility to make sanitizing solution and hand sanitizer for first responders. In hopes of making more impact during an uncertain time, Melissa and Lee Katrincic joined the American Craft Distilling Associations task force on helping other craft distilleries convert their production.  

Giving to the Community

Through all of the growth and opportunity Durham has provided many, we believe we have a role to play in making these opportunities available to any who want them. That is why we support a number of local organizations that advocate for the service industry, education, equity, and the arts & Sciences. 

A couple programs we work with include:
The Durham Nativity School (sponsorship of Science Experiment Program)
STEM RTP (Building Girls Who Code)
The LGBTQ Center of Durham
Dress for Success
North Carolina Restaurants and Lodging Association
