Hotel Tango Distillery and Bloomington’s Cardinal Spirits announced on, of all things, Friday the 13th. that they are manufacturing their own hand cleaners and donating them where there is need.

Nicholas Ladig, Chief Sales Officer, stated that the management of Hotel Tango held a meeting and agreed to use their facility, that makes high proof spirits (up to 190 proof), to make 95% (190 proof) ethanol hand sanitizer.

Tony Fleming, Production Manager, was changed in creating the recipe for the hand cleaner. They mix water and Xanthan Gum together to make the final product thicker and easier to spread on the hands, then add that to the ethanol. Interestingly enough they can’t make this final product in the actual distillery by law, so they have to combine all the product in their internal kitchen and bottle it there.

Co-founder Adam Quirk decided that Cardinal Spirits would do their part after noticing the a lack of enough quantities of hand sanitizers in the local area stores. Not only are they producing hand sanitizers they have also provided recipes for “correctly” making it yourself

Update 3/14/2020: FDA is now recommending 80% ABV for ethyl alcohol based sanitizers. We will be updating our recipe immediately (Sunday, March 15, 2020).

Hi everyone. Here is a collection of recipe ideas for making hand sanitizer from GNS for distilleries.

We’ve seen other distilleries talking about using heads [Editor: The “heads” ar the first liquids that comes off the still, and is usually discarded.] for making sanitizer. While this is probably a fine idea for sanitizing non-porous non-coated surfaces, it’s not smart to use on human skin. Methanol is bad for us, which is why we remove it in the first place, right?

Anyhow, here are our recipe ideas…

Hand sanitizer is simply alcohol + emollient (skin softener).

First, here’s a good explanation of how alcohol mixes with oils.

And here is what we’ve done:

10 Liters of GNS [Grain Neutral Spirits] at 95% ABV
2 Liters of mineral oil
1.5 liters of RO water (any water would work)

You need to shake this up pretty good for it to dissolve. And unfortunately, it does come out of solution. We recommend you tell your guests to shake it up before using to redistribute the oil.

The basic recipe is 10L of GNS with 3.5L of some kind of emollient. This nets 14.5L of hand sanitizer at 70% ABV.

Aloe is pretty expensive, and was unavailable in Bloomington. The general point of the post is that you can use any emollient, just make use of what is available to you. And while 60% is a good target, better to err on the side of more ABV and target 70% in case of measurement errors.

So if you have propylene glycol, you could use that:

10 Liters of GNS at 95% ABV
2 Liters of Propylene Glycol
1.5 liters of RO water

If you happen to have a bunch of coconut oil:

10 Liters of GNS at 95% ABV
2 Liters of Coconut Oil
1.5 liters of RO water

If you happen to have glycerin:

10 Liters of GNS at 95% ABV
2 Liters of Glycerin
1.5 liters of RO water

Let us know if you have other suggestions on our Facebook page.

Stay clean, stay safe, and stay in business!

Old Fourth Distillery:
According to their Instagram post: “Due to the recent reports of outages and low supply in our community, We have decided to provide hand sanitizer free of charge to anyone in need. Made with aloe vera gel and 95% ethanol. This is no substitute for washing your hands but in a pinch it will get the job done. Available at the Distillery starting March 12th at 5pm. If you have a container please bring it and we will be happy to fill it!”

And it has Aloe!

Durham Distillery, based in North Carolina, said in a statement this week that it is in “a unique position of providing assistance to our hospitality colleagues.” The company announced it will use its alcohol to create a sanitation solution, which it plans to donate to local businesses in need.

“We distill Conniption gins from a 95% ethanol base. Having this ethanol available enables us to develop a highly effective sanitizing solution of ~70% ethanol and distilled water,” the company said. “At this concentration, microbes are killed upon spraying and evaporation.”

The distilleries website provided this notice:

 March 12, 2020


In light of the recent spread of COVID-19 in our community, Durham Distillery is in a unique position of providing assistance to our hospitality colleagues.

We distill Conniption gins from a 95% ethanol base. Having this ethanol available enables us to develop a highly effective sanitizing solution of ~70% ethanol and distilled water. At this concentration, microbes are killed upon spraying and evaporation.

As an extra layer of protection for our community, Durham Distillery will begin donating this solution to our hospitality colleagues under the following guidelines:

  • The 70% ethanol and water solution is recommended for surface spray as a final step after shift cleaning. Once the area has been sprayed, do not wipe. Allow for natural evaporation.
  • During service, the spray should be utilized for high-touch surfaces, including but not limited to:
    • All doorknobs & door handles
    • Lavatory
    • Sink faucets
    • Toilet seat and handles
    • Glass-touch surfaces

We will require all who accept this donation to agree to and sign a liability waiver. Under no circumstances is this solution to be consumed or resold.

Donations will be fulfilled on an appointment basis starting March 12th, 2020. We ask that you kindly reach out to Erin McMullen, General Manager ( or 919-390-2896) to schedule an appointment.

To the appointment, you will need to bring one of the following recommended vessels with you:

  • A high-density polyethylene (HDPE) container with a tight, reseal able closure. Some large “mayo” jars should be fine. Check the bottom of your sealable container. If you see a recycling logo with a “2” in the middle, it will work.
  • A sturdy glass vessel with a tight, reseal able closure.

At this time, the donation will be limited to 2 liters. The solution will be pre-mixed here at the distillery and ready for use. We will go through proper staff training procedures during your appointment.

Keeping our community and families safe is of paramount importance to us all. We will continue this program for as long as we can. This is a time where we know we’re stronger together.

With clean hands and hopeful hearts, 

Melissa and Lee Katrincic

Portland, Oregon-based Shine Distillery & Grill is also making its own “hand cleaner” and providing it to the community free of charge. The company said it wants others to give back as well — so it’s also offering to provide its recipe to other distilleries.

Eight Oaks Farm Distillery in Pennsylvania announced that it is starting a hand sanitizer project, but it has yet to produce physical bottles of the product.The Pennsylvania-based distillery is making its sanitizer from alcohol and aloe.”We have temporarily shifted our distillation process from spirits to hand sanitizer in order to support our community, hospitals, assisted living homes and beyond!”

Moonrise Distillery in Clayton, Georgia, which has started producing hand sanitizer wrote this message to consumers: “Please don’t try and make sanitizer at home as it will be either too low proof to be effective or make your hands crack and peel from the alcohol.”Moonrise is currently offering its hand sanitizer for free. “We are a community of huggers and hand shakers and we want to do our part to maintain that warmth in a safe manner.  While washing hands with soap and water remains the best solution we hope the sanitizer will help when that is not possible.”

Kentucky Artisan Distillery is doing more than producing its bourbon brands during the outbreak of COVID-19. Oldham County’s only distillery is currently providing a 60% alcohol solution that can be used as an alternative to hard-surface sanitizer for first responders, government agencies, nursing homes and other non-profit agencies that are in high risk of exposure.

Mammoth Distilling in Traverse City was handing out its custom made hand sanitizer free to customers this week.

The owner said once production slowed down, they decided to use some of their spirits to make the hand sanitizer.

“We’re getting a lot of inbound requests from nursing homes and I just got an email from the Autism Centers of Michigan saying they are in desperate need of product, they can’t find it anywhere else,” owner Chad Munger said. “So, we’re going to ramp up production a little bit to handle those requests as well as to handle customers that want to come in and fill up here.”

Deeside Distillery

The distilleries in the United Kingdom have also started to help out their country as well.
In a statement on their Instagram feed:
We have been completely overwhelmed by the number of organisations that have contacted us regarding shortages of hand sanitiser. We are doing what we can to ensure that the frontline and primary care providers have stocks, including nurseries, schools, care homes and medical centres.

Please be aware that this is our priority and we cannot respond to every member of the public who has contacted us through social media, phone calls or emails.

We are speaking with other distilleries across Scotland and encouraging them to do what they can, as we realise that we’re in a unique position to be able to create a base product that’s got a high enough alcohol content.

There’s a severe shortage for those working in environments with those most vulnerable (care homes, the homeless, charities etc). and we would love to see as many get the supplies that they so crucially need.”

Relaxing Government Red Tape

LANSING, Mich. (WPBN/WGTU) — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced Thursday March 19, 2020, that Michigan’s licensed distilleries are now permitted to produce ethanol-based hand sanitizers.

“Even in times of crisis, Michiganders have shown their willingness to step up and help each other,” said Whitmer. “I am profoundly grateful for the Michigan distilleries who are putting people before profit and are using their production facilities to make hand sanitizer during this COVID-19 emergency.”

Wednesday, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) relaxed its regulations in order to allow beverage distillers to make denatured alcohol.

This production is not normally permitted unless a distillery has an industrial manufacturing permit, which no Michigan distiller currently has. Under the relaxed rules, Michigan distillers can make denatured alcohol without the normally required permit.

These rules were approved through June 30, 2020, with the possibility for extension as necessary.

Any existing Distilled Spirits Permittee (DSP) can immediately commence production of hand sanitizer or distilled spirits (ethanol) for use in hand sanitizer without having to obtain authorization first.

All TTB-permitted DSPs may manufacture hand sanitizer products that are comprised of:

  • denatured or un-denatured ethanol
  • glycerol (not less than 1.45% of the finished hand sanitizer product on a volume basis)
  • hydrogen peroxide (not less than 0.125% of the finished hand sanitizer product on a volume basis)

Stumpy’s Spirits Distillery

You have absolutely blown us away with your support this past week! From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!!
Due to the overwhelming need, we’re happy to announce that we are completely converting all of our production over to hand sanitizer this week. Please stay tuned for updates on production quantities and where this can be purchased. We will get through this together! Stay strong everyone!
Adam, Laura, Charlotte & The Stumpy’s Team

Buffalo Trace Distillery

Buffalo Trace Distillery cares deeply about those affected by the Covid-19. We are especially concerned about the lack of supplies to eliminate pathogens for our first responders and others in essential industries who may be affected by Covid-19 in the state of Kentucky.

Beginning on Tuesday, March 24, 2020, Buffalo Trace Distillery will donate 1 case (12 bottles each) of its Clear Spring 190 proof grain alcohol to any of the following approved Kentucky based businesses/non profits:
a. First responders
b. Government agencies
c. Law enforcement
d. 501 c3 charitable entity
e. Health care

In order to be considered, the above organizations will apply through this online form
Once approved, a confirmation email will be sent when the product is ready for pick up.

It is important to note, our supply of Clear Spring is limited. For state law reasons at this time, only individuals and organizations based in Kentucky will be offered the case of Clear Spring alcohol.

If an individual/organization is approved, the confirmation email will include pickup instructions at Buffalo Trace Distillery, located at 113 Great Buffalo Trace, Frankfort, KY, between noon and 2 pm each day Monday through Friday.

Pick ups will be self service to minimize person to person interaction.
A copy of their Tax-ID number or confirmation email along with photo ID will be required for pickup, and individuals picking up must be 21 years of age or older.

Clear Spring is not a hand sanitizer. It is a high proof potable spirit which can be used on non-porous surfaces for eliminating pathogens. Instructions from the World Health Organization (WHO) for the proper mixture for a medical grade formula will be included with each case.

At this time, priority is being given to first responders and others in essential industries. There may be a possibility consumers not in those categories may purchase Clear Spring for their own use in the near future. Buffalo Trace Distillery will notify consumers via this platform if the opportunity arises.

Koval Distillery

Since announcing its plans to donate production to first responders, nursing homes and food pantries among other destinations, Koval has raked in nearly $40,000 in donations to underwrite production.

“We’ve turned our business upside down,” Koval co-founder Sonat Birnecker Hart said. “For us this is a kind of war effort. We’re luckily in a position to have a distillery that can manufacture something really needed for those fighting on the front line.”

From their website:
In the coming weeks, we at KOVAL Distillery in Chicago (typically known for our organic and kosher whiskeys, gins, and specialty spirits) will be focusing our efforts on providing hand sanitizers in bulk to the medical community, retirement homes, and those on the front lines in this war against COVID-19. We have been working with Chicago city officials and the TTB to lift the restrictions that will allow us to pivot to supporting our community.

As we all know, the demand for alcohol-based sanitizers is great, and our communities are experiencing extreme shortages. It is our goal to provide these vital products to those in need free of charge.

If you are in a position to help support our efforts, your donation will go toward paying our team, keeping our lights on, and purchasing the necessary supplies to keep up with demand.

We hope that you will respect that we will not have hand sanitizer available for the general public at this time.

On behalf of everyone at KOVAL, we also want to take a moment to thank you for your business over the past 12 years. It has been a pleasure and privilege to serve Chicago, and the world, with our spirits. We look forward to a day when we can once again focus on spritzers over sanitizers.

We have been working around the clock here at KOVAL to make the most of your INCREDIBLY generous donations. To say that we have been completely blown away by the generosity of this entire community is an understatement! Words cannot express the impact your contributions have made, but please find the following updates on how your quick responses have already impacted our community.

* Sanitizer production has officially begun & our very first deliveries went out yesterday!

* Our fearless leader Sonat delivered the first available product to the CPD, District 19.

* The retirement community, Admiral on the Lake received product as well.

* The law firm Edelson PC donated $15,450! This astounding generosity pushed us well over our original goal of $30,000, and will directly bring sanitizer to the Howard Brown Health Center, the Village of Melrose Park and Advocate Christ – all organizations that are on the front lines battling COVID-19.

* Today over 100 gallons has gone out to the CPD and O’Hare Air Traffic Controllers.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you again to everyone who has donated or shared our message. We have received HUNDREDS of sanitizer requests from people in need, and the inquiries are not showing any signs of stopping. We remain committed to helping as many organizations as possible, and look forward to keeping you updated on how your generosity is shining a bright light during this difficult time.

CH Distillery

CH Distillery announced Tuesday it will donate a Malort brand hand sanitizer to local hospitals and clinics beginning next week in one-liter glass bottles.

Malort hand sanitizer
Malort hand sanitizer

The future collector’s item sadly won’t be available to the public, but if demand stays high, the pandemic persists and there’s surplus product, it may be donated more broadly, even to individuals, CH owner Tremaine Atkinson said.

The distillery began making the sanitizer last week, Atkinson said, and didn’t deliberate long before choosing to brand it with Chicago’s best worst spirit.

“It’s serious in the sense that it’s real hand sanitizer that will help people,” Atkinson said. “But everyone needs a little bit of a laugh and something to make them smile. We know how people feel about Malort, so we figured why not throw the name on.”

Atkinson said he plans to make at least 250 bottles of Malort hand sanitizers, but hopes to make as many as 500 and maybe even more, depending on the availability of ingredients.

He wanted to bottle it in smaller bottles to distribute to the public, but there was too much legalese to fit on the label. So they’re sticking with the big bottles.

Dry Fly Distilling

From their Instagram:
Another great day. Another 1,000+ free bottles given away. We are exhausted but feeling fulfilled.

We will be back at it tomorrow starting at 10am for the high risk groups and essential businesses. General Public from 11-3 pm.

Please continue to be patient with us. We are limiting our amounts to the general public to spread it out as much as possible! The larger quantities are going to essential businesses that need it for more people.

Please also remember we are doing the best we can and providing a free service!

If y’all have any unused 4-8 oz bottles to donate, we would be much obliged!! Spokane Strong!

Dry Fly Distilling – has produced around 6,000 to 7,000 bottles of the hand sanitizer –distributed its first batch to health care providers, retirement and nursing homes, city workers and first responders

Litchfield Distillery

From Instagram:
We will continue to offer hand sanitizer to essential businesses and high-risk individuals. Our hours today are 11am to 4pm. Please note the following changes to the program:

Hand Sanitizer will be distributed by the LOADING DOCK at the distillery. This is toward the back of our parking lot.

Today we will allow Spirit sales at our main entrance door. One person will be allowed to enter at a time, please be patient and don’t be offended if we ask you to apply hand sanitizer.

Please be careful and drive slowly in our parking lot. It’s getting crowded and no one needs the extra hassle of a fender bender.

For larger organizations (like fire departments, medical offices, etc.) it would be helpful if you can bring containers for us to fill as packaging continues to be in short supply. Large 32 oz. spray bottles are ideal.

For high-risk individuals, we are only providing 4 ounces at this time.



The sanitizer is free. We are not able to ship any hand sanitizer.

Washing your hands for 20 seconds with hot water and soap is preferred method is you are at home. Don’t waste hand sanitizer if you have access to a sink and soap.

Our phones are overwhelmed. Only call if you are in a high risk category. Please be brief.

Rockin A Distillery

From Instagram:
Getting the first bottles ready to distribute. This batch is for our local community folks that are still working to keep the rest of us safe. Thanks. We’ll continue to build supplies and hopefully be able to offer to the general public soon.

Cutwater Spirits

From Instagram:
Cutwater is always committed to supporting our San Diego community. In response to COVID, we have mobilized to use our production resources and Miramar distillery to create an 80% alcohol hand sanitizer, which we are donating directly to local non-profits within San Diego County beginning March 30th. We are working on additional ways to give back in San Diego, so stay tuned for more news to come. We are all in this together!

Iron Shoe Distillery

NILES, Mich. (WNDU) – Local distilleries are changing their ways to help meet the needs of residents and first responders. One of those needs is hand sanitizer.

It’s almost impossible to find on any store shelf. That’s why Howard Tuthill is taking the temporarily closed Iron Shoe Distillery in Niles and using it to give the community what it desperately needs.

“We started producing hand sanitizer,” Tuthill told 16 News Now Tuesday.

With a shortage for hand sanitizer and the Iron Shoe having to shut down amid coronavirus concerns, Tuthill says it all made perfect sense to start making sanitizer knowing he has the equipment to do it.

In fact, Tuthill plans to have 1200 8 oz. bottles of hand sanitizer ready for sale by the end of the month.

It requires three key ingredients: alcohol, glycerol, and hydrogen peroxide. It’s a recipe approved by the FDA that allows Tuthill to make it in-house at the distillery.

“The FDA has given pretty strict instructions to distilleries on how they can make the sanitizer. We have to follow the recipe given by the World Health Organization.

In order to make it, raw grain must be taken into a mash tank and mixed with water. It is then transferred over to ferment.

“Once it’s done fermenting, we put it into the still where I heat it up in the kennel. As I heat it up in the kennel, the alcohol turns into a vapor first. The vapor climbs up through the column, and comes over in the condenser, pulls back into a liquid, and then I collect it when it comes off a still,” Tuthill explained.

Once it’s off the still, it’s bottled up and ready to distribute to residents and first responders in need.

“This is our current source of revenue. Not only that, just being able to help out the community, We’ve been having a bunch of hospitals and healthcare facilities reaching out asking for sanitizer. Being able to help when it’s most needed, that’s the most important part,” Tuthill says.

Bottles of hand sanitizer will be sold in 8 oz. bottles and 5 gallon containers. Tuthill is still working on pricing each product but says he is refraining from any price-gauging.

“We’re going to keep the cost low. We want to help people out,” Tuthill said.

Caledonia Spirits

The brave people on the front lines of COVID-19 are in need of hand sanitizer. With your help, Barr Hill can put it in their hands. Your purchase will go to first responders, nurses, and doctors.

Please note Barr Hill Hand Sanitizer is not currently available to the general public and you will not receive a bottle of hand sanitizer. Your purchase will go directly to a healthcare worker. This may change once we fulfill the many requests we have from the healthcare system.

If you know of a healthcare organization in need, please have them reach out to us at

Destilería Serrallés

Ponce, Puerto Rico-based Destilería Serrallés shifted its Don Q rum production and, for the time being, is focusing on manufacturing ethyl alcohol with a 70% concentration for free distribution to hospitals and multiple health providers.

“The current emergency situation we are experiencing is critical,” says president and CEO Philippe Brechot. “Given the critical outlook and our strong production capabilities, we quickly took on this task and have distributed thousands of gallons of this much-needed high-proof alcohol suitable for sanitation and disinfection, which is vital to prevent the spread of the virus.”

Last week alone, Destilería Serrallés distributed nearly 10,000 gallons to hospitals and primary care facilities island-wide. A small crew is working according to strict hygiene and safety protocols and the remainder of employees are on full payroll at home.

“Over the last few years, Puerto Rico has experienced unprecedented emergencies, including devastating hurricanes, earthquakes and this impending health crisis,” Brechot says. “Puerto Rico is a resilient community and we are confident in our ability to recover from this collective challenge and rise again.”

Today our Master Distiller, Jacob Call, was able to deliver sanitizer to the Owensboro Health Regional Hospital and to the Owensboro Police Department.
