Hand sanitizer created by Central Ohio distillery now on sale

Watershed Distillery announced Thursday that its hand sanitizer is now available at its bottle shop in response to the coronavirus outbreak.

The company made the decision to produce hand sanitizer in response to the national shortage.

“We see a real need to help the community. We have close friends of the distillery who are first responders, and they’ve helped us before. Now is our chance to help them where we can,” stated Greg Lehman, founder and CEO of Watershed Distillery. “Plus, we can help our restaurant and community partners. We have the capability to offer something in this fight — something to slow the spread of this virus in our community — and we’ve been working around the clock to get it done.”

Here are details for ordering:
