This so great...cheers to Dogfish Head brewery & distillery in Delaware... part of their production line is shifting to make very in demand and in very short supply hand sanitizer. They plan to sell it to the state at market price & donate 100% of profits from to a fund to help Delawareans affected by COVID-19.
The sanitizer is created by blending a high-proof version of their Compelling Gin with Aloe Vera gel and contains at least 80% alcohol, adhering to recommendations set by the World Health Organization (WHO) and Center for Disease Control (CDC).
For now, there's no plans to make it available to the public, the state will make sure it goes to health organizations, first responders and more.
Here's their official statement via the Gram:
While we may be known for our off-centered ales, we’ve been distilling@dogfishspiritsin Delaware since 2002 and have now partnered with the@delaware_govto make more, much-needed hand sanitizer available to the state government. We never thought we’d be in the sanitizer business, but it’s in a time of crisis that necessity is the mother of invention. At this time, the sanitizer inventory is dedicated to fulfilling critical needs of the state, including providing this essential product to health organizations, first responders and more. The sanitizer will be sold to the state of Delaware at market price, and 100% of the profits will go into a fund to support Delawareans affected by the Coronavirus.#togetherweareheavy
