Maine distilleries are making a change from producing craft spirits to hand sanitizer:
- Maine Craft Distilling – has produced a 65% ABV hand sanitizer for a couple weeks. Having run out of glass bottles they’ve partnered with Oakhurst to package it in plastic milk bottles.
- New England Distilling – is distilling Allagash White into alcohol for hand sanitizer.
- Batson River – late last week cut over their distilling capacity to producing hand sanitizer which they’ll be distributing to first responders and high risk people, and expects to distribute 5,000 16oz bottles per week to local supermarkets and pharmacies.
- Hardshore Distilling – in collaboration with Rising Tide and Three of Strong has produced a line of hand sanitizer.
