Distilled with Love

Five & 20 Spirits is now
(temporarily) Five & 20 Sanitizer

In times of crisis, alcohol is more important than ever – but not in the way you might think! Some of the same processes and ingredients that we employ in the production of our spirits can be utilized to produce hand sanitizer, and that’s just what we’re doing. We look forward to raising a glass with you all soon, but in the meantime, we will be hard at work as usual in a time that is anything but.

“Salute!” “Bleib Gesund!” “Sláinte!” “Na zdrowie!” “À votre santé!”

We toast to your health.


Why are you doing this?
Because we can! We are fortunate to have the ingredients, equipment, and processes in place to distill a product that will make a real difference in our community.

Where can I buy your hand sanitizer?
At the moment, we are focused on donating this product to departments of health, non-profits, local healthcare workers, our own staff, and our restaurant, bar, and distribution partners who are still hard at work to safely serve their communities. We are currently donating to:
North East Community Nurses
Community Resources for Independence
Benedictine Sisters of Erie
Josephite Sisters of Erie
Our Lady of Mercy
Twinbrook Nursing Homes
Pediatric Opthamology of Erie
Jamestown Post Office
Belle Valley Fire Department
Mayville Family Health Medical Services
If you would like your organization to be added to this list, please contact us.

Beginning Monday, March 30, sanitizer will be made available to consumers. No purchase necessary. One per customer. For orders being shipped out, sanitizer will be included in your package upon request. One per customer.

If additional capacity exists, we will be offering some product for sale to help offset our operating costs and keep our team hard at work –and paid!

For commercial inquiries, please contact us.

How are you making your hand sanitizer?
We are following strict WHO, TTB, and FDA guidelines to ensure that the product is properly regulated.

How can I help?
First and foremost, take care of yourself! If you want to support our operation, all proceeds from product sales will directly support our production, including our sister wine brands.

Are you still selling Five & 20 Spirits?
Yes! You can always purchase our Whiskies and Bourbon online and our distillery is offering curbside pickup for call-ahead orders. Call (716) 793-9463 to place your order. All sales proceeds will directly support our hand sanitizer production.
