Co-Owners Melissa & Lee Katrincic, who were among the first in the US to produce sanitizer for the hospitality industry and now for healthcare workers and first responders, have introduced online ordering and curbside pick-up of their full Durham Distillery product line, hand sanitizer and cocktail kits. “Our team has been focused on relief efforts since early March, and while we continue to produce sanitizer for the state of North Carolina, we’re excited to reconnect directly with our fans and share our award-winning Conniption Gin curbside,” explained Melissa. “While NC has not enabled the sale of cocktails to-go, we’re in a unique position to be able to sell the full gin cocktail experience through our distillery with our new French 75, Martini and Honolulu cocktail kits.”
