Inslee will be in Cashmere for ceremony at business park


Washington Gov. Jay Inslee will be in Cashmere Sept. 16 to help celebrate two grand openings at the Cashmere Mill District Business Park.

The noon ribbon-cutting ceremony will recognize the first tenants of the business park, Blue Spirits Distillery and Hurst International.

Blue Spirits Distillery will occupy 6,800 square feet and Hurst, a fruit label printer and label equipment manufacturing business, about 6,500 square feet.

The two buildings at the business park on a former mill site have a combined 32,000 square feet of space.

The business park is on the site of a former lumber mill.

The Port of Chelan County cleaned up the property for the business park.
