As the world continues to be affected by the pandemic, one Washington brewery has switched up its production to pump out hand sanitizer during shortages.
Announced by Heritage Distilling Company (HDC), the Gig Harbor, Washington, distillery says that in response to a request for assistance from Washington State, they saw an opportunity to lend a hand, shifting their brewery output to a simple sanitizer recipe that is being sold to the general public as well as frontline workers all over the state.
The sprayable solution is made of denatured ethyl alcohol, distilled water, hydrogen peroxide, and glycerol or fractionated coconut oil, and is available for purchase online and at HDC locations.

Unique to HDC, the distilling company is offering hand sanitizer on tap. Anyone who spends more than $15 in their tasting rooms can receive 8 oz of sanitizer from the tap for free, as long as they bring in their own sealable container.
For those looking to purchase the sanitizer in bottles, HDC sells the solution in 750 ml batches. The bottles cost $15 for the general public, and $7.50 for frontline workers, first responders, and healthcare providers with valid ID.

As a way to prevent hoarding, staff will be recording names and ID numbers. Each person is entitled to one 8 oz fill a day and two 750 ML bottles of sanitizer. The tap fill is available at their Waterfront, Ballard, Capitol Hill, and Roslyn locations.
If you’d rather not enter the distillery, feel free to call ahead for curbside pick up.
