Black Button Works to Fill Community Need for Hand Sanitizer

Mar 19th, 2020

To our Black Button Family,
As a result of the current COVID-19 global pandemic, we have suspended all regular operations of liquor production in favor of producing ethanol-based hand sanitizer for Rochester-area hospitals, doctor’s offices and other at-risk communities. 
We are uniquely qualified to safely handle and bottle ethanol-based hand sanitizer, and we have an extensive network of contacts to bring bottles, labels, labor, and ingredients to bear. We are doing this to help our community, to hopefully save lives and to get our employees back to work. We want to do our part in these unprecedented times.

Looking to purchase?
Interested hospitals, homeless shelters, senior citizen centers, paramedics, fire stations, daycares and other high-risk operations should reach out to with hand sanitizer requests. Please provide approximate need, address, contact information, packaging requirements and explanation of your at-risk population.
Black Button Distilling will not respond to non-critical entities until we have met the demand. Unfortunately, hand sanitizer will not be available for purchase directly to consumers at this time. We ask you to respect that our work must be focused on aiding those who are most vulnerable in the best way possible.
