Tito’s Vodka plans to make hand sanitizer amid the COVID-19 pandemic


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN/CNN) — A company known for making liquids for your mouth is now working on liquid for your hands.  

Hand sanitizer to be exact.  

Tito’s Vodka announced via tweet that it’s focused on producing 24-tons of hand sanitizer after previously reporting its vodka wouldn’t be an effective hand sanitizer to combat coronavirus.

The Texas-based business says it will make a product that adheres to industry and governmental guidance.  

The distillery will make 24 tons of hand sanitizer after the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau authorized production by permitted distillers.

Hand sanitizer has to be at least 60% alcohol in order to be effective.

They also continued to advise customers not use their vodka as a way to keep your hands clean.
