SEABROOK - Today, Scott Brown visited Smoky Quartz Distillery, a veteran owned business located in Seabrook. Brown toured the facilities with employees and listened to regulatory issues the business is facing, and explained how his veterans’ initiatives help foster the next generation of veteran owned small businesses.
“I want to applaud Kevin for serving our countryand taking the initiative to start his own business from scratch—despite an economy that continues to underperform and politicians that do not listen,” said Brown. “Entrepreneurs, particularly veteran entrepreneurs, need the tools to grow their business and create more good-paying jobs.”
The idea for Smoky Quartz Distillery came to Kevin Kurland while serving as an airman overseas in Iraq. Once his time in the military was over, Kurland sought help from his family members and set his plans into motion. In May of 2014, Kurland opened the doors to his new business and welcomed Scott Brown to come by for a tour.
“Opening this business was a dream come true, and I appreciate Scott Brown’s drive to help small businesses owners and veterans like myself achieve their goals through sensible policy solutions,” said Kurland.
