Like many of our fellow distilleries, we are making hand sanitizer. We are following the relevant government guidance and rules, and using the WHO’s recipe. In fact, we were the first distillery in the United States to complete the FDA’s registration process. In the interest of making it possible for more distilleries to follow the rules, do it right, and get through the FDA process, we even shared a guide for other distillers to get through the FDA process.
We are aiming to have hand sanitizer available as much as possible in our retail store and for pick-up ordering, and to supply it to local essential businesses when possible *ALL ORDERS MUST BE PICKED UP AT THE DISTILLERY*
THURSDAY 4/9 – UPDATE
We are currently filling some new requests for local police departments, hospitals, funeral homes and senior care facilities, as well as two food pantries and a homeless shelter, and a few other organizations who care for the most vulnerable members of our community. We are working on filling some of our highest-priority requests from local businesses, as well. We hope to be able to offer more hand sanitizer for individuals sometime in the next few days.
If you would like to be notified about sanitizer release dates and other news specifically related to getting hand sanitizer, REGISTER HERE – that list will be notified a few hours before we make a new batch available. If you are requesting sanitizer for your business, you will receive an additional questionnaire to complete so we can get you into our queue.
Please be aware that we are always giving priority to requests from first responders, health care workers, and others providing critical services (many of which we are donating to). This means we are limiting how much any one person can buy at a time, and sometimes our timeframes slip.
- First Responders, Health Care, Senior Care: If you are a first responder, health care worker, funeral home or work in a senior care facility, please reach out to us by email at team (at) northshoredistillery.com, and we will endeavor to expedite your request and help you find other options if we cannot meet your needs.
- Essential Business Inquiries (for your small or large business that is still operating): if you need more than we normally allow you to purchase on our website (2 of the 2-oz spray bottles and 1 of the 8-oz refills), please REGISTER HERE and indicate you are inquiring for your business. We will send you an additional questionnaire to complete so we can get you into our queue.
- Individual Inquiries (for yourself or your family): When we are able, we are offering the following for curbside pickup at the distillery (we are not allowed to ship). Please order online through the links below – we are trying to keep our phone line clear for individuals picking up, so we are trying to avoid phone orders except where it is the only option. Please be patient with us, as we are a small team, and we are trying to do all we can but we are overwhelmed with inquiries and requests. If the links do not work, that means we are sold out right now.
Thanks everyone very much, and be well.
