To deter the spread of the COVID-19, the high demand for virus preventative items like hand sanitizer soon resulted in a shortage. And for those who have been in real need of it, such as retirement centers and local emergency response teams, sadly have been left without.

No Small Miracle

Sugar House Distillery has been giving away free bottles to first responders and retirement centers, and for those purchasing, they are raising donations for One Small Miracle, which is a nonprofit safety net for Utah’s uninsured and underinsured service professionals and their families in the event of a life-altering medical condition.

This is a first of its kind virtual interview with James Fowler, founder of Sugar House Distillery. All while keeping our social distance, it’s a conversation that took place from my living room and the back room at Sugar House Distillery. In this interview, we find out from James Fowler more about how this hand sanitizer idea came about, who is receiving FREE bottles of hand sanitizer, how the distillery business is operating at this time and he shares two great cocktail recipes (one is with locally made Mamachari Kombucha).

Pretty rad, eh? Be well SLC.
