When the COVID-19 crisis spiked demand for alcohol-based hand sanitizer, Johns Hopkins Hospital called on Sagamore Spirit’s rye whiskey distillery to produce the urgently needed hand sanitizer for its frontline medical workers. Using enterprise resource planning software from SAP, Sagamore Spirit swiftly and seamlessly pivoted production from rye whiskey to corn ethanol to start producing 54,000 liters of hand sanitizer for the hospital. 

There is no higher priority than serving the growing and vital needs of health professionals and first responders, and the entire team at Sagamore Spirit is prepared to contribute to this global effort. We feel fortunate to have the expertise and manufacturing capacity to make a difference at a meaningful level and we are committed to servicing as many needs as possible.
