Tito's Handmade Vodka

Tito's Handmade Vodka is facing a unique challenge amid concerns surrounding the spread of COVID-19.  

As hand sanitizer is getting scarce and shelves are emptied, some consumers have opted for home brew recipes that call for alcohol.  

While these crafty DIYers have boasted of their efforts online, Tito's has been forced to respond with a note that it's vodka doesn't meet the current CDC recommendation for alcohol content.  

According to Tito's, in many, many replies on Twitter: 

"Per the CDC, hand sanitizer needs to contain at least 60% alcohol. Tito's Handmade Vodka is 40% alcohol, and therefore does not meet the current recommendation of the CDC."

In the event that you are shopping for homemade hand sanitizer supplies, reach for something a little stronger.
