You will have seen lots of Gin Distillers assisting with the demand for Hand Sanitiser. We have been extremely quiet on the social media whilst working to set up our production to assist in these difficult times.
This is to meet the demand of frontline services – NHS, Emergency Services, Schools, Care Homes, Food Producers, Care Staff etc.
There are absolutely no plans to retail this directly.
To be clear: For our safety and yours do not come to the distillery.
If you are a representative of frontline services please contact us on
We would also like to recognise that this was very much a team effort with the following companies assisting to get our production up and running:
Macleans Bakery, Forres, Walkers Shortbread, Aberlour, Moravian Printers, Elgin & Inverness, AM Detailing, Elgin and Tan International Ltd, Scotland Food & Drink, HMRC, HSE, British Distillers Association, Moray Chamber of Commerce, Gin Cooperative
We can also advise you that chemical companies have significantly increased their capacity with Ineos launching a new plant specifically to production of Hand Sanitiser and also Scotch Whisky Association implementing measures to assist with supply. This is an exceptional time where currently in some areas there is an immediate shortage of an essential PPE in the fight against Covid19. Our production is to assist in our locality. If you are out-with our region we can point you to a local producer in your area.
In the meantime, we would like to reassure our customers that we have ample stocks of our gin made and ready to go, which we will continue to sell on our website for now. In order to prioritise the production of the sanitiser, all deliveries will now be shipped by Parcel Force.
This has been an amazing effort by our sector in times which we need to collectively support each other. Our buddies at Pickerings perfect put ‘We are proud to stand among our peers in the distilling industry, doing what we can to support those who need it most.’
This will pass – if you’re going through hell, keep going (Winston Churchill)
