Danville, KY – Wilderness Trail Distillery is more well known for its whiskey, but to support those on the front lines during the battle against the spread of Coronavirus it will supply local healthcare providers with hand sanitizer.
The distillery will use its ethanol alcohol to produce hand sanitizer for Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center. The distillery plans to produce 500 gallons a week for the next six to seven weeks.
“If we need to continue from there, we will,” says Shane Baker, master distiller and distillery co-owner.
Danville’s health department and city manager are working to coordinate distribution of the remainder of the hand sanitizer for use by emergency service personnel.
“Our goal is to take care of the healthcare providers,” Baker says.
