LONGMONT — Longtucky Spirits, a Longmont distillery, was awarded combined grants of $22,500 to convert its formerly non-retail space in Downtown Longmont.
The grants are a joint effort between the Longmont Economic Development Partnership, City of Longmont and Longmont Downtown Development Authority. The Retail Conversion Grants are designed to help new retail businesses convert former non-retail space downtown, according to a news release.
Real estate can be a force for good, and that’s exactly what real estate developer, Brinkman, is trying to do with their recent achievement of B Corp Certification. After over a year of rigorous testing of their social and environmental practices, Brinkman earned certification last week.
Longtucky opened its doors on June 23 in the former Times-Call building at 350 Terry Street. The distillery has already released three spirits and plans to release two more in the upcoming months. The distillery and lounge occupy 4,500 square feet and can seat 70 people in handmade chairs built by Longtucky founders John Young and H.K Wallace.
