Raise spirits and capital like Nippitaty Distillery

Traxler Littlejohn has brought an organic spirits distillery to his neighborhood of North Charleston, SC with the help of a Honeycomb Credit crowdfunding campaign!

Cheers to community capital

After a lukewarm Kickstarter campaign, Traxler wasn’t ready to give up on crowdfunding as an option for financing his business, so he turned to Honeycomb, inspired by his ability to raise money and give back to his community through the process.

Traxler Littlejohn of Nippitaty Distillery and his family

You can play on Albert, Ameritrade, whatever all you want, and you won’t get to go to that place, meet the owner, and get any face time with them, whereas with us, we’re your local distillery down the street. This is me the owner, here’s a picture of my family, it’s a lot more personal for people because we put a face to the name and a face to the campaign.
