Hiram Walker & Sons Distillery Proud to Produce Hand Sanitizer to Help Canadian Fight Spread of COVID-19 Virus

Canada NewsWire

TORONTO, March 19, 2020 /CNW/ - As part of the national effort to fight the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Corby Spirit and Wine Limited and its Walkerville Hiram Walker & Sons Distillery in Windsor, Ont. are proud to announce that they will be producing hand sanitizer.

The historic distillery, proud producer of J.P.Wiser's Canadian whisky in operation for more than 160 years on the banks of the Detroit River, typically distills 180,000 litres of alcohol every day, but today will be adding hand sanitizer to its production line.

"Corby is proud to support the efforts of the Canadian and Ontario governments and communities across the country in fighting the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic," says Patrick O'Driscoll, Chief Executive Officer of Corby. "In coordination with local and senior levels of government, we are utilizing our production capacity and Windsor distillery to help provide hand sanitizer to areas where it is in need."

The sanitizer will be donated where needed in Windsor, and to the TTC in Toronto.

Corby and the TTC have a long-standing partnership with the annual Corby Safe Rides that provides free TTC rides on New Year's Eve. The donation of hand sanitizer will be used in TTC garages and at collector booths to help people keep their hands clean.

"The health and safety of our employees – and our communities – is our top priority," says Mr. O'Driscoll. "In times like this, it is important that everyone, especially companies with strong Canadian roots, like ours, prioritize good corporate citizenship and step up in the name of the greater good. I am glad that we were able to form this public/private partnership and repurpose our spirits production facilities to meet a pressing need."
