Keuka Lake distillery switches to producing hand sanitizer amid COVID-19 pandemic

A distillery on Keuka Lake is changing its operation amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

An Antler Run Distilling, which is Keuka Lake’s newest distillery is helping local health professionals obtain hand sanitizer.

The company will provide the supply to local health professionals, retirement and nursing homes first during the national shortage. Once those needs are met, sale of hand sanitizer will open to the general public.

Doug and James Quade own and operate Antler Run Distilling.
