In response to the ongoing COVID-19 emergency, Rebecca Creek Distillery donated 100 gallons of Love, Distilled, its alcohol-based hand cleaner to the City of Fort Worth.
Officers from Fort Worth Police Department picked up the product Rebecca Creek Distillery in San Antonio, the distillery said in a news release.
Rebecca Creek Distillery makes Rebecca Creek Whiskey, Enchanted Rock Vodka and Texas Ranger Whiskey.
The distillery shifted production of ultra-premium spirits to the much-needed alcohol-based hand sanitizers to respond to the national shortage of hand sanitizers and the growing needs of local first responders, the news release said.
Since the emergency declaration of a global pandemic, Rebecca Creek has produced and donated more than 1,500 gallons of Love, Distilled to first responders and essential personnel throughout Texas, including San Antonio, Corpus Christi, Arlington, Austin, San Marcos, Dallas, and Houston.
Steven Ison, founder/owner, and Steve Ryan, CFO/owner, said they are working closely with crisis management officials from various state and local agencies to distribute the alcohol-based hand cleaners to communities throughout Texas.
“We have a large customer base in Fort Worth, and we want them to know that we grateful for their support to our brands over the years. In these times of a global pandemic, we can help our local first responders by producing and donating Love, Distilled, our alcohol-based hand cleaner,” Ison said.
