Vandalia Distillery Switches From Whiskey To Hand Sanitizer

Witness Distillery, located in Vandalia, is scheduled to open to the public this fall. But they’ve been producing whiskey and other distilled spirits almost every day for about a year, barreling their products for future sales. This is, until coronavirus impacted all of our lives. Now, Witness Distillery has shifted their production to making hand sanitizer.

Co-owner and operator Cindy Radliff says it’s the right thing to do.
