Bloomington, Ind. – The City of Bloomington and its Mayor John Hamilton proclaimed
March 14 is Hand Sanitizer Day, honoring the day the Cardinal Spirits Craft Distillery began
produce and distribute hand sanitizer in the context of a national shortage in 2020.
Cardinal Spirits, the craft distillery founded in 2015 in Bloomington, Ind., is known for producing
award-winning canned spirits and cocktails, but it has temporarily moved all of its production to
hand sanitizer at the start of the pandemic. The distillery donated much of its hand sanitizer to
first responders and emergency organizations, and gave free hand sanitizer to
individuals in the everyday community as well.
To show appreciation for the City of Bloomington proclamation, Cardinal Spirits will celebrate
Hand Sanitizer Day by once again offering unlimited amounts of its hand sanitizer to
community: free gallons for individuals and free bulk orders (over 10 gallons) for organizations,
businesses and groups, 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 individual gallons and bulk orders can be made at cardinalspirits.com
from March 13.
