At Gulf Coast Distillers, we’re best known for our award-winning spirits like BJ Hooker’s Vodka and Giant 95 Bourbon Whiskey. However, we can do a lot more than just distill and bottle amazing beverages, though, especially in a time of crisis.
Like many businesses throughout the world, we’ve chosen to pivot in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. As of March, we have started shifting our production resources and making hand sanitizer in addition to our famous liquors. We saw the lack of supplies affecting the population, especially in our home of Houston, Texas, and we had to act.
That’s why we introduced C4U hand sanitizer.
What Is C4U Hand Sanitizer?
C4U is a liquid based sanitizer and made in accordance to the FDA’s requirement. Our unadulterated hand sanitizer smells different than artificially scented sanitizers available from retail locations. Per FDA guidance, we do not add other active or inactive ingredients, such as ingredients to improve the smell or taste, due to the risk of accidental ingestion in children. Different or additional ingredients may impact the quality and potency of the product. C4U hand sanitizer is also made using a dedicated production and bottling line for maximum safety and to create a high-quality and truly effective product.
So far, we’ve shipped over 250,000 gallons of our signature hand sanitizer throughout the nation. We’ll continue to create and ship out more as long as we need. Gulf Coast Distillers is dedicated to giving back during this process, too. That’s why we’ve also donated more than $250,000 in bottles to various first responders, hospitals, essential workers, and non-profit organizations. We appreciate those who are working so hard to keep us healthy, and this is our way of saying “thank you”.
Where to Buy C4U Hand Sanitizer
C4U hand sanitizer is available at a number of Texas retailers. The list includes several popular retailers like Kroger, HEB, and Aldi.
Shoppers can also buy directly from our online shop. Purchase options include either two 32 oz bottles of sanitizer or one case, which equates to twelve 32 oz bottles of sanitizer.
A Word from Our President
In an interview with a local Houston news outlet, Gulf Coast Distillers president Carlos de Aldecoa said about the company’s decision to start producing and selling hand sanitizer:
“We saw the panic in people trying to buy the products and how important it is to stopping the virus to make sure people sanitize properly and keep the hygiene levels that are needed to get this thing to stop. What we thought about…with the shortages is ‘how can we help the community?’”
Gulf Coast Distillers has always been a community-focused company. We care about the great state of Texas and are dedicated to continuing to do our part as long as we’re needed to help ease the strain on supply chains. We’ll keep working to put health and safety products in the hands of the people who need them the most.
