“We realized yesterday that we are in the unique position to be able to help our community in this way; we are able to both make Old Pali Road whiskey AND produce hand sanitizer that meets WHO standards so that we can help our greater ‘ohana through this unprecedented situation,” KO‘OLAU DISTILLERY CEO Eric Dill said.
Dill anticipates providing a product as early as March 25, 2020. Kōkua Sun Care has also stepped up to assist with the initiative by donating empty bottles for some of the sanitizer.
“We are proud to see our local businesses stepping up to protect the community. Adding the production of hand sanitizer to KO'OLAU's operations is the right thing to do,” said Lieutenant Governor Josh Green.
KO‘OLAU DISTILLERY is based in Kailua, Hawaii where they produce a Old Pali Road, a high-quality whiskey that has been rated one of the 15 best craft whiskeys under $60 in America.
