You probably already know that our overproof alcohol and all-natural ingredients do a great job keeping you feeling clean and smelling good all day. What you may not know is how well Pit Liquor works beyond a traditional deodorant. With the help of some of our biggest fans, we break it down for you below.
Hand sanitizer has become a hot commodity this year. It's in every store, on the shelves and in dispensers. We're all using a whole lot more of it than we did last year. Did you know Distilled Bath and Body sells hand sanitizer too? But we think our Hand Liquor is a cut above the rest, and we're here to tell you why.
Ever had a truly terrible hangover the morning after drinking? This might come as a surprise, but there's a reason for this that doesn't have anything to do with you drinking too much. Fasten your seatbelts, friends, it's time for a little lesson in how alcohol is made.
When alcohol is distilled, it sits in large containers for a period of time to let the alcohol settle. As it settles, the methanol alcohol rises to the top and the ethanol alcohol floats to the bottom. Ethanol alcohol is what's in your drink, and what your body can process. Methanol, on the other hand, cannot be processed as easily and is toxic, even deadly. To remove the toxic methanol, companies perform a process called "cutting" that siphons out all or most of the methanol, leaving the ethanol behind. The higher quality your liquor, the deeper it was cut.
Now these liquor companies who cut off their methanol are left with large quantities of un-sellable methanol alcohol. What to do with it? Why, make it into hand sanitizer of course!
Now let's be clear, not every hand sanitizer is made with methanol. The FDA has recently created new policies around methanol and issued warnings about it. But some methanol hand sanitizers are still sold, and this is where the "toxic hand sanitizer" claims originate. Additionally, even hand sanitizers without methanol can be unhealthy. Companies are not required to disclose where their alcohol comes from, meaning some use petroleum based alcohol or other chemical-laden products.
A Cut Above
Unlike other hand sanitizer, our Hand Liquor is made with grain-neutral, quality spirits that are made for drinking. Literally, you could drink our clean hand sanitizer with natural ingredients and be completely fine (although we don't recommend it!). The food-grade vodka and whiskey in Hand Liquor kills bacteria, but is safe to put on your body. And even though hand sanitizer is made from alcohol, we promise it's safe for little hands too. We purposely make our Hand Liquor taste bitter to deter children from drinking it. And because all our ingredients are food-grade, you can sanitize little hands before eating and have no fear for your child's health. And not only is our Hand Liquor clean & natural hand sanitizer good for your body, it's good for the environment too! You can use our glass bottles and enjoy the organic ingredients know you're taking care of yourself and our world.
We want to leave our planet a better place that we found it.
And as a company, we at Distilled Bath & Body see that our actions have larger ripples because of the scale of our impact. We want to do our part to make sure each of our choices makes the world a better, brighter place. A big way we hope to accomplish this is by seeing less plastic in our home and in yours too.
We can all agree plastics are not beneficial to our planet, and Pit Liquor is dedicated to reducing plastic dependency. Plastic clutters our streets, overwhelms our landfills, and leaches chemicals into our food. Unlike plastic, glass does not affect our food, is recyclable, and can be broken down. So no more throwing away plastic shells when your deodorant runs out! We use glass bottles for all of our products, helping you ditch plastic a little more easily.

Refill is the new recycle, and one way we reduce our impact is by offering reFILL bottles (in glass bottles of course!). Our reFILL bottles will refill our 100ml spray bottles 3.69 times, and will refill our 50ml roll-on bottles 7.5 times. Not only does this save you money, but it allows you to reuse your Pit Liquor bottles over and over.
