Amidst the Coronavirus pandemic, Old Fourth Distillery has been distributing make-shift bottles of hand sanitizer. Starting today they are shifting their efforts and giving back to those on the front lines. Co-Owner of Old Fourth Distillery Jeff Moore has been making hand sanitizer with their own in-house alcohol. “It was really something that helped us not feel so helpless. We were able to play a small role in comforting people in this time of need,” said Moore. Thousands of people liked, commented and shared his new initiative on social media. “Everybody has gotten together to support one another and that is just incredible,” said Moore. At first Moore Was handing the hand sanitizer out to everyone, but as the crisis worsens, he's now only giving it to first responders. “Hospitals and the fire and the police and the sheriff’s department,” he explained.
