One of the ripple effects of COVID-19 is that retailers everywhere have effectively run out of hand sanitizer. Looking for ways to help both their communities and their businesses, distilleries, breweries, and wineries have
to fill the gap. stepped in
What follows is a master list of the beer, wine, and spirits businesses (within the United States and overseas) that have begun producing hand sanitizer of their own. The list is alphabetical, first within the United States and then moving on to other countries. If you know of a business that hasn’t been included, please leave a comment on this story, including the name of the business and a link to either a news story or a social media post from the company itself, confirming they are producing hand sanitizer.
Please bear in mind that this list is a living document and that aspects of it might change as things unfold. For example:
Some of the businesses listed might not yet have begun production. Some might have already run through their existing stock, or suspended production entirely. Some might be producing hand sanitizer but providing it directly to the government, or to responders such as hospitals, fire departments, or police departments.
This is an uncertain time for small businesses everywhere, and it’s a particularly bad time for people in the hospitality and food/beverage industry. Your patronage helps to keep these businesses afloat.
