It’s no secret that right now hand sanitizer and toilet paper are in high demand, as they disappeared off store shelves in the wake of the Coronavirus making landfall in the US. But local Washington distillery, Dry Fly Distilling, has taken it into their own hands to get hand sanitizer out to those who need it most right now. They’ve received approval from state boards to begin producing hand sanitizer in their Spokane distillery and are beginning work on the first batches, once they source bottles and containers for the sanitizer, they will be giving it away for free to their community. We hope to see more and more businesses doing their best to give back to their communities and fill shortages as these next few crazy weeks progress.

From Dry Fly Distilling:
“We have been doing all our research and checking out all the legalities of making y’all some hand sanitizer!
We finally received news that the TTB (The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau) and the FDA have recognized our ability to assist Spokane in this effort and cleared the hurdles!
We are currently sourcing bottles to make this possible and will distribute them to our community free of charge!! Please stay tuned for further details!
Let’s work together to keep Spokane safe!”
Dry Fly Distilling is not alone, several other distilleries across the country are temporarily converting their production lines into sanitizer production lines, like Eight Oaks Farm Distillery in Pennsylvania.
