Ontario distillery making free hand sanitizer for "essential services" in need

Mar 18 2020, 12:02 pm

Beamsville-based Dillon’s Distillery is aiding those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic by combining its own alcohol with aloe to create hand sanitizer, to offer for free.

The distillery says that it started offering the hand sanitizer free with purchases in-store and online last week, and the second batch is now available.

Beyond sanitizer for skin, the distillery is also bottling 65% alcohol for disinfecting and sanitizing surfaces. While those bottles don’t have spray nozzles, the producers say that any nozzles users already have on-hand should fit.

Dillon’s is offering these items, at no charge, to any “essential service individual or organization.”
