Minnesota Distilleries Team Up To Make Hand Sanitizer For Local Communities

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- A group of Minnesota distilleries are teaming up to assist their local communities in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bent Brewstillery, along with many other local craft distilleries, are taking a small break from crafting spirits to aid local individuals and businesses with hand sanitizer.

"It feels great to work together as an industry to do good, said Shelly Dailey, Managing Partner at Studio Distilling. "We all want to do everything possible to help our community during this time, and we are proud to support this life-changing effort!"

The complete list of partnering distilleries include:

  • Bent Brewstillery in Roseville, MN
  • Studio Distilling in St. Paul, MN
  • Ida Graves Distillery in Alexandria, MN
  • Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park, MN
  • Dampfwerks Distillery Co. in St. Louis Park, MN
