When the coronavirus hit the United States one of the first pieces of advice that health officials offered us was to wash and sanitize your hands. Almost immediately containers of hand sanitizer disappeared off of store shelves and people began selling it online at outrageous prices.
Now that many cities and town around the country are practicing social distancing some alcohol distilleries are starting to practice making their own sanitizers since you use, well, alcohol.
Tito's Handmade Vodka, based in Texas, posted on Instagram that they are currently working on their own formula to make it available to the public as soon as possible.
Currently, we are testing our formula, procuring necessary components of supplies and packaging, and preparing for production as we wait for the additional required ingredients to be delivered to the distillery. We have the ingredients and equipment on order to make an initial 24 tons of hand sanitizer over the next several weeks, and plan to make more from there as needed.
They say all the details aren't ironed out just yet, but they are clearly working hard and hoping to get it out to all of us as soon as possible.
