HUDSON VALLEY (April 15, 2020) — Today, The Vale Fox Distillery of LaGrange, NY, launches an online store with their new hand and surface Sanitizer shipping to 48 states, and their award-winning debut release Tod & Vixen’s Dry Gin 1651 shipping anywhere in New York, with availability in additional states to follow.
The expert team at The Vale Fox Distillery specializes in small-batch spirits, but when the COVID-19 crisis struck, they swiftly began diverting all of their resources towards producing hand sanitizer, supplying it to first responders and the supply chain supporting essential businesses at cost.
Of this new direction for The Vale Fox Distillery, founder and managing principal Eral Gokgol-Kline says: “Historically, distilleries have risen to the occasion in world crisis. During WWII, most distilleries, repurposed to produce industrial strength alcohol that was used to make antifreeze, plastics, lacquer and medical supplies for use in the Southern Pacific. It’s an honor to be part of this legacy and we are eager to do our part to contribute to our community in a meaningful and valuable way.”
After spending the past few weeks meeting the needs of those on the front line, The Vale Fox Distillery’s hand and surface Sanitizer is now available for purchase at cost plus, 25 cents per ounce to be donated to small businesses and their employees affected by the coronavirus crisis.
