From Gin to Gel: Shed 1 Gin Distillery Turns It Hand To Sanitiser

From Gin to Gel: Shed 1 Gin Distillery Turns It Hand To Sanitiser

Hello Everyone.

Well, it took a bit of time but HMRC have given permission and we’ve managed to source the materials needed to make some hand sanatiser. Our priorities are the local hospice, St Mary’s, and other vulnerable groups in our area. Also, we know there are volunteers helping those in the community who are also desperate for sanatiser and we’ll do our best to supply them.
However, as a small, independent business our finances are pretty dire at the moment so we’re asking if you could help us with some donations to cover the cost of the materials. The charities and groups are struggling, as are so many people, so we will be gifting them this vital resource. Any extra money will be donated to charity.
You can visit our Just Giving page here.

 

And what about us?

Well, as you can see we’re keeping ourselves busy and trying to remain positive. Our online shop is still open and includes free postage.
Last October, when we opened the Shed to visitors and started the Gin Experiences, it was the start of an exciting future. Now, we are living in a time of uncertainty. We hope that the Shed will ride the storm and come out the other side.

More importantly, we hope that we all can stay safe and we look forward to celebrations on the other side.

  • Be kind to yourself and others
  • Take care of each other
  • Stay safe and well

Thank you so much for reading. Cheers, Andy & Zoe x
