Lexington Distillery Responds to Coronavirus Crisis by Making Hand Sanitizer

Lexington Brewing and Distilling Company

A Lexington, Kentucky distillery is responding to the current coronavirus health crisis by using its alcohol supplies to make free hand sanitizer for those in need.

Lexington Brewing and Distilling Company delivered 200 bottles of the sanitizer to city hall on Friday. Additonal batches are expected next week.

Mark Coffman, master distiller at Town Branch, said he’s working with Lexington officials to identify organizations in need of the hand sanitizer.

Coffman said the product they’re making contains 80 percent alcohol, aloe vera gel, and a small amount of hydrogen peroxide bottled in recyclable glass.

He said the distillery is planning to continue to produce and distribute its hand sanitizer throughout the COVID-19 crisis.
