I’ll Drink To That: A Portland Distillery Is Making Hand Sanitizer And Giving It Away For Free

Do you want hand-crafted, organic, locally-sourced, bespoke hand sanitizer? Have no fear. If you are in the Portland, Oregon area, a local distillery is now making some to give to customers.

Shine Distillery and Grill have the equipment and the alcohol for the highly prized item. And they care about keeping people healthy (and not wasting resources). When the alcohol is distilled, the first bit that comes out isn’t meant to drink. So, they make cleaner from it.

House distilled hand cleaner made at Shine- stop by if you’re in need. We’re handing out free bottles while the supplies last!

“I had a lady sitting at the bar the other night and she asked if she could have some and I wasn’t sure, so over the weekend, we did our research and checked with the controlling authorities and come to find, as long as we’re not making a medical claim or selling it, we’re allowed to give it away,” said owner Jon Poteet.

The CDC recommends that alcohol in hand sanitizer should be at least 60 percent. Shine Distillery’s is 80 percent. They add xanthan gum to thicken the mix, water, and voila! Hand sanitizer.

Even better? Poteet is giving them away for free.

“Ultimately, I’m part of the community, I want my friends and neighbors to be happy and healthy,” he said. “All my neighbors getting sick and going down doesn’t do me any good. I want to be in a healthy community, and it feels good to be able to give back.”

Hand sanitizer is great if you can’t get to soap and water, but hand washing is the most effective way to clean your hands. So keep washing those hands.
