Help Black Button Distilling Make Hand Sanitizer

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. 

Our goal is to provide hand sanitizer for as many people in need as possible, and we can make it happen with your help!

For every $10 donated, one bottle of hand sanitizer will be donated to a non-profit organization in need across Monroe County. We have partnered with United Way of Greater Rochester to coordinate distribution to area nonprofits. If your agency is in need of product, please email [email redacted]

We made 4300 bottles last week and our goal is to make 5,000 bottles a day by the end of this week for as long as we can keep supply lines running and there is a community need. Your donations will help get these bottles into the hands of those who need it most.

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.

We ask you to respect that our work must be focused on aiding those who are most vulnerable in the best way possible. We are unable to provide hand sanitizer to the general public at this time.
