The Mob Museum, The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, announces the addition of a hand sanitizer production operation to its distillery in The Underground Prohibition history exhibition space.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Museum realized it was well-positioned to help satisfy the overwhelming demand for hand sanitizer for their employees and guests, and within the community, while creating a viable revenue stream to support its operations.

The house-made liquid hand sanitizer is produced with 80% denatured alcohol and mixed in the Museum’s distillery located in The Underground, the Prohibition history exhibition in the basement floor of the Museum.

The Museum’s distillery team mixes the ‘heads’ and ‘tails’ of its moonshine with other high-grade ethanol.

The hand sanitizer is now available to purchase here.

In addition to being available for consumers to purchase, the Museum has identified a number of nonprofits with a significant need within the local community and has created a program to assist with donation requests. UNLV’s School of Medicine is among the local organizations the Museum has donated to.

Beginning Aug. 1 and running through Aug. 31, with every ounce of sanitizer the Museum sells, they will donate the equivalent to another local non-profit organization.

If you are interested in sponsoring this program or donating directly to The Mob Museum to further assist with their mission, please reach out to sales@themobmuseum.org. All donations are fully tax-deductible.

Revenue raised by the sale of the Museum’s hand sanitizer will help to further the Museum’s mission, deepen its reach within the community and ensure its future as a vibrant cultural destination in Las Vegas.

Non-profit organizations interested in receiving donations of the Museum’s hand sanitizer can submit their request by completing this form.
