Listen: Cris Steller from Dry Diggins Distillery
Steller shifted his business to producing hand sanitizer. He is getting it out to first responders and hospitals in the area . He is also helping other distilleries in the area to pivot their operations as well.
Dry Diggins is donating the hand sanitizer to essential workers in hospitals, police and fire stations and nursing homes. The distillery has already given away more than 100 gallons to ten different organizations.
My name is Casey Newman and I am the Head Distiller at Dry Diggings Distillery in El Dorado Hills, CA. We are raising money in order to continue our production of hand sanitizer and surface cleaner for the heros who need it! Everything is donated! So far we have produced and donated hand sanitizer and cleaner to 10+ high risk organizations.
We are not donating this to the public instead we are donating to organizations such as hospitals, police and first responders who are on the front lines against this deadly virus.
Since 2008, we have worked to bring the distillation industry in California on to the international scene. Aurum Sierra, Inc (parent of Amador & Dry Diggings Distillery) has worked to establish California as a premiere destination for distilled spirits. We produce over 25 labels under our Amador, Engine 49, and Dry Diggings brands in addition to the private label work we do. Our expertise in distilling has brought us private label projects as well. Rocket Vodka, Corti Brothers spirits, one off whiskey projects and several brandies under various wine brands are all distilled here at Aurum Sierra. We are a distiller, blender and also do work for both the brewing and wine industry.
