Dry Fly Distilling announced Tuesday it has received federal approval to begin producing hand sanitizer spray and plans to distribute the product in Spokane for free.
Now the company is in the process of sourcing bottles for the hand sanitizer with production approved by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, according to a Facebook post from Dry Fly.
“When we received approval to make sanitizer spray, the phones started ringing off the hook,” the company announced.
Dry Fly said one of those calls was from King Soft Water offering to install a system to help purify water for the hand sanitizer. And Spokane Industries, which makes the company’s stainless steel distillery tanks, said it would provide a mixing tank for production.
“My Spokane is as awesome as ever,” founder Don Poffenroth said in the Facebook post. “We shall overcome.”
