WACO, TX — Balcones will start making hand sanitizers to aid in combating the COVID-19 virus.

The world-renowned whisky brand will start making hand sanitizers this week, and they hope to have them in their tasting room by Friday.

The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) announced they are authorizing production of ethanol-based hand sanitizers by permitted distillers last week, leading to this to be possible.Balcones joins other distilleries like Tito's Vodka in this endeavor. Companies from all over the United States have been challenged to help create much-needed medical supplies at this time.
