As much as we’d love to keep pushing out spirits, times are strange, and strange times require change. For the last month we have shifted the distillery’s focus to the production of hand sanitizer – over 20k gallons at this point. We have sold to government agencies, small distilleries, and other hand sanitizer brands, but we are excited to announce that we are now able to offer hand sanitizer to a broader set of businesses and the general public. Our hand sanitizer products are available for purchase on Square (click here) and at our El Dorado Hills tasting room.
We, like everyone else, hope for a return to normal, but until then, we will do what we can. We stocked up on our standard products before this all hit, and our award-winning spirits are available for sale at retailers that are still in operation. We look forward to seeing you all soon when the bars open.
There have been a number of reports of producers using fuel or technical grade ethanol in hand sanitizer products that contain harmful impurities. We manufacture the ethanol in our products based on World Health Organization (W.H.O.) recommended U.S. Food and Drug Administration (F.D.A.) approved formulation for hand sanitizer. We only use ingredients and equipment in our processes that meet F.D.A. standards and approval, and we source them from reliable partners. We absolutely do not use technical or fuel grade ethanol.
