Tennessee distilleries do their part for hand sanitizer shortage
Mar 21, 2020
The Tennessee Distiller’s Guild is featuring 15 distilleries that are producing hand sanitizer. At the proper strength, drinking alcohol makes a terrific sanitizer.
Some of the distilleries have been donating sanitizer to worthy causes, a particularly admirable deed during this time of shortage. Others have product for sale at the distillery and retail outlets.
The Tennessean has good coverage.
Here's a list of Tennessee Guild Distillery members turning hooch into hand sanitizer:
Big Machine Distillery, Lynnville and Nashville
Chattanooga Whiskey, Chattanooga
Corsair Distillery, Nashville
Doc Collier Moonshine, Gatlinburg
Gate 11 Distillery, Chattanooga
Jack Daniels, Lynchburg
Lost State Distilling, Bristol
Nashville Craft Distillery, Nashville

Old Dominick Distillery, Memphis
Old Forge Distillery, Pigeon Forge
Old Glory Distilling Co., Clarksville
Picker’s Vodka, Nashville

If you visit a local distillery, make sure you support the industry and pick up a nice supply of craft spirits for your bar. Cheers.
