Tito's Handmade Vodka provided free hand sanitizer to Austinites

The vodka brand said it will roll out distribution to other Texas cities in the coming weeks.

AUSTIN, Texas — Austin-based Tito’s Handmade Vodka provided free hand sanitizer to members of the public on Thursday.

The vodka brand said it has shifted its hand sanitizer distribution strategy as coronavirus cases surge in Central Texas and will make 21,000 bottles of 375 mL sanitizer available to the public.

The hand sanitizer was available via contactless pickup at the Krieg Softball Complex parking lot at 222 S. Pleasant Valley Road between 12-6 p.m.

“Due to the recent spike in cases of COVID-19 in Texas, we wanted to make our hand sanitizer more widely available to the local community,” said Taylor Berry, VP of brand marketing at Tito’s Handmade Vodka. “We’re starting in our hometown of Austin, with plans to expand to additional Texas cities in need.”
