Join C2ST and KOVAL for a virtual tour and tasting while Dr. Sonat Birnecker Hart guides us through the production of hand sanitizer!
KOVAL Distillery is known for creating a line of organic & kosher whiskey, gin, and specialty spirits using unique grains, a signature “heart cut” technique, and only the absolute best quality ingredients. As one of the largest independent and woman-owned craft distilleries in the US, KOVAL is frequently awarded internationally for its bright flavors and eye for design.
As of March 2020, KOVAL has shifted its operations to help provide alcohol-based sanitizer to those on the front lines in the fight against COVID-19. To date, they have donated over 3,000 gallons of sanitizer to Chicagoland first responders and community organizations. Through a virtual tour, get an inside look into how a distillery transitions to produce hand sanitizer and sip along during an optional virtual tasting as Dr. Hart answers questions live.

C2ST’s Science From the Frontlines is an ongoing series of virtual events tackling topics such as vaccines, public health, community best practices, and other subjects relevant to the COVID-19 epidemic. This series of virtual events will also serve as a fundraiser for C2ST and the frontline efforts to combat COVID-19.
While we are concerned about our continued well-being as an organization, we know that our community is also in peril. To make sure we are doing our part for the community, 50% of all donations from the “Science From the Frontlines” series will be shared with the Illinois PPE Network. When you make a donation to this campaign, not only will you be ensuring that cutting-edge science will be accessible to the public, but you will also be helping the effort to stop the spread of COVID-19.
