Middle West Spirits Is Making Hand Sanitizer And Here’s How You Can Buy Some

After producing over 50,000 bottles of free hand sanitizer for front-line responders, one Columbus distillery is now opening up sales to the public.

Over the past two months, Middle West Spirits has been working with local, state, and national officials to produce hand sanitizer for Ohioans and to help develop the standards being followed by over 600 distilleries across the country to produce the sanitizer.

“Middle West Spirits’ mission to produce liquid antiseptic is born from a deep desire to help and protect our community’s most vulnerable front-line workers,” said Middle West Spirits Cofounder and Owner Ryan Lang “We also take our responsibility to our internal team very seriously. We want to activate opportunities to keep our Middle West families employed. The sanitizer project allows us to achieve both.”

Middle West Spirits is offering the public three different purchase options, including

  • Two 8-ounce bottles for $10
  • 12 8-ounce bottles for $60
  • 12 16-ounce bottles for $90

Our distillery has been working 24 hours a day producing an ethanol based hand sanitizer for weeks. The first 50,000 bottles we produced were donated to first responders, shelters, and community organizations (a big thank you to our partner in this gift, @colsfoundation). Now we have reached a point in our production where we have some sanitizer available for public purchase. The details: 🧴Our sanitizer is 80% alcohol. It is water-thin because of this high alcohol content. 🧴This is definitely not for consumption. If you are thirsty, all of our spirits are available for purchase from our bottle shop or as an addition to your Service Bar carryout order. 🧴For the safety of our customers and staff, we are only offering direct shipping—there are no curbside pick-up options. 🧴Due to limited supply, members of the public can purchase up to (2) cases of each size of hand sanitizer per day, per customer, for delivery via USPS or FedEx. 🧴All orders can be made at middlewestspirits.com On the right side of the page, there is a tab labelled “Hand Sanitizer”. 🧴Our online shop includes the option of making a donation or adding a donation to an order. 100% of your donation is applied to the cost of producing and distributing free sanitizer to the organizations in greatest need. 🧴Organizations looking for bulk sanitizer can submit their request via the Bulk Inquiry form at middlewestspirits.com that includes all the details needed to process the request. Be kind. Stay safe. Take care of one another.
