Jon Murto, founder of Murto Made

April 29. Murto Made Distillery and Mammoth Machine & Design are working together to make alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

“Our recipe will be Formula 1 (80 percent ethanol blend) in accordance with the World Health Organization, utilizing FDA approved ingredients from domestic suppliers,” said Mammoth’s George Brinzey, a former Cornelius Police community officer.

Brinzey launched Mammoth Machine, a contract manufacturer, in Huntersville. Murto is a self-named micro-distillery launched by Jon Murto in 3,200 square feet on Ramah Church Road.

Their surface and hand sanitizer comes in 55 gallon drums that cost $1,500 with free delivery within a 100-mile radius of Huntersville.

Brinzey said they will donate two, five-gallon buckets to the first responders of your
choice for every 55 gallons of hand sanitizer purchased.
