The Collingwood, Ont. distillery, Heretic Spirits, is halting the production of alcoholic drinks to produce, package, and deliver hand sanitizer to various hospitals, nursing homes, and first nations communities in Ontario.
This is the story of two dreamers who happened to live across the street from one another. Growing up in Collingwood Ont., neighbors Jeremy Hall and Scott Morrison who dreamt of the day they would do something different with their lives. They wanted to forge their own paths and take risks. They currently are achieving this goal in a way they didn’t expect with Collingwood’s newest distillery Heretic Spirits.
When the COVID-19 Pandemic hit, Jeremy, the vice president of sales, and Scott, the chief executive officer of Heretic Spirits, quickly realized that their distillery needed to shift gears. The pair decided, with a small nudge from the municipality, to help their community to the best of their abilities.
