How Hiram Walker is Helping Fight COVID 19

Leading the Fight Against Covid-19

Hiram Walker & Sons are synonymous with Canadian Whiskey but they are now also known for their efforts to combat COVID-19. They have added a crucial item to their production that will help Windsor and Toronto flatten the curve. Hand sanitizer is in short supply in Canada and they are doing their part to create as much of it as possible for the foreseeable future.

"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," said Corby Spirit and Wine, the company which manages the Hiram Walker distillery, in a statement on Thursday March 19th.  

The hand sanitizer will be produced in conjunction with their regular products, according to the distillery's manufacturing manager Han Ha — and will be donated "where needed" in Windsor, as well as to the TTC in Toronto.

According to Ha, the team met with officials at Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens' office to identify where bottles of hand sanitizer would be most needed, including police and fire stations, hospitals and the Canadian Border Services Agency office.
