The City of Bloomington and its Mayor John Hamilton have proclaimed March 14 as Hand Sanitizer Day, honoring the day that Cardinal Spirits craft distillery began producing and distributing hand sanitizer amid a national shortage in 2020.
Cardinal Spirits, the craft distillery founded in 2015 in Bloomington, Ind., is known for producing award-winning spirits and canned cocktails, but it temporarily shifted its entire production to hand sanitizer when the pandemic began. The distillery donated much of its hand sanitizer to first responders and emergency organizations, and gave away hand sanitizer free of charge to individuals in the community every day, too.
To show appreciation for the City of Bloomington’s proclamation, Cardinal Spirits will celebrate Hand Sanitizer Day by once again giving away an unlimited amount of its hand sanitizer to the community: free gallons for individuals, and free bulk orders (10+ gallons) for organizations, businesses, and groups, from March 14-31, 2022. Hand sanitizer must be picked up at Cardinal Spirits, 922 S. Morton St. in Bloomington. Shipping is not available.
Pre-orders for both individual gallons and bulk orders can be made at cardinalspirits.com starting March 13.
