Centralia Coal Transition Board awards grant to Sandstone Distillery

Centralia, Wash. (May 19, 2020) The Centralia Coal Transition Board is pleased to announce the award of a grant to Sandstone Distillery in the amount of $63,000 from the Economic & Community Development Board. The grant dollars will be used to support the retrofit of a 3,000 gallon copper vessel that was slated for decommissioning and eventual scrap, affectionately known as “Gabe”. The re-purposing of this equipment will allow for the production of large quantities of hand and surface sanitizer which can then be ready for distribution to the communities of Lewis and South Thurston Counties as necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
