To offer support during a pandemic, many individuals and businesses are being generous with their products and services and in some cases, deviating from their usual offerings to keep communities in good health; many distilleries are focusing their efforts on producing alcohol-based hand sanitizer due to shortages, including BrewDog, which plans to sell a WHO-approved hand sanitizer early next week to meet the demand for the product in the UK.
BrewDog's hand sanitizer is branded and packaged with the distillery's iconic blue color and has been dubbed Punk Sanitizer, which reminds of the naming and labeling for its popular Punk IPA beer.
To combat shortages, a variety of non-distilleries are also manufacturing hand sanitizers where facilities are set up to do so.
