Business Unusual

Business Unusual at Tenth Ward Distilling Company

The following “Business Unusual” account is part of our new initiative, Collecting in Quarantine. With current mandates for all non-essential businesses to close, business is anything but usual in Maryland. In the Business Unusual series, MdHS is asking business employees, owners, customers, passers-by and neighborhood residents to visually share their experiences during the COVID-19 crisis.

Thursday, April 2 and Wednesday, April 8, 2020 – On these days, Tenth Ward Distilling Company shared the photos below:

As we saw earlier this week on the underbelly, local breweries have been adapting in creative ways to keep their businesses afloat during the coronavirus crisis. Maryland’s distilleries are shifting too. Over at Tenth Ward Distilling Company in Frederick, Maryland, the company shared that they’re offering curbside pickup and delivery options for their craft spirits and cocktails, and like many companies at this time, they’re also encouraging the purchase of gift cards. The company also shared this dispatch below of another way that they and other distilleries are pivoting and giving back at this time:

“Distilleries have been given legal permission during the state of emergency to distill ethanol to be used for sanitization products such as hand sanitizer, surface disinfectant and sterilization chemicals. Tenth Ward has been producing surface disinfectant in response to this need and we’ve been able to support so many front line services like hospitals, nursing homes, police and fire departments and so much more.”
