The Distilled Spirits Council of the United States (DISCUS) has launched an online portal to help the increasing number of distillers producing hand sanitiser.
DISCUS said yesterday it has worked closely with regulators to overcome red tape. Distillers now have "clear direction" to follow TTB, FDA and WHO guidelines, the trade organisation said.
"The nation's distilled spirits industry is mobilising to aid our communities, hospitals and first responders during this time of crisis," said DISCUS CEO Chris Swonger. "This new portal will serve as an important resource for the hundreds of distillers who are stepping up to produce sanitiser. This is not only the right thing to do for their communities, but it also allows some of these craft distilleries to keep their stills going, maintain their employees and stay afloat during this crisis. Further, we are co-ordinating closely with the federal COVID-19 task force as part of the nation's collective efforts to fight COVID-19."
The portal will serve as a conduit between distilled spirits manufacturers, industry suppliers and distribution channels.
