The company also said they are working with the Red Cross to determine where the gel is “needed most”. In addition, they said they are creating gel and beer at the same time during the national crisis.

The latter has shipped small bottles of gel along with orders for their gin via their website. In addition, according to Eater New York, they sent orders to hospitals for 2500 gallons and 1700 gallons of hand sanitizer.
Other companies include New York Distilling Company and St. Agrestis Spirits.
