COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. – Cooperstown Distillery produced several bottles of hand sanitizer to help fight the spread of coronavirus.

The company stopped liquor production to create the hand sanitizer, which will be available for pick-up from noon to 6 p.m. on Friday.

“We are distributing it in our beverage exchange, which is our bar, retail space right on Main Street, Cooperstown. This time around, we are setting up a table outside to limit the amount of people in close proximity,” said Tamara Sines, the marketing manager at the distillery.

Bottles of the hand sanitizer will also be delivered to health care providers, nursing homes and grocery stores.
