Looking for a hero in this coronavirus crisis? We found one in our New Richmond Chamber membership. Paul Werni—-owner of 45th Parallel Distillery—-has agreed to start transforming his trademark gin into hand sanitizer (which is 70 pct alcohol) to meet the national shortage. Local and county governments, hospitals, businesses in MN and WI lobbied him to utilize his distillery in the battle to contain Covid-19. He couldn’t say no. Thx to Paul and his team for stepping up to make a difference.
