Please bear with us....
During these uncertain times, we’re trying to do our own small bit to help.
As you may be aware, we are among the distilleries who’ve decided to suspend production and make high strength hand sanitiser to help meet demand during the coronavirus crisis.
We’ve been completely overwhelmed by the response and offers of help, and also the sheer volume of requests for critical service providers– but as we’re currently working round the clock producing hand sanitiser, we don’t have time to answer everyone individually.
Just so you don’t think we’re ignoring you, here’s some answers to the most common questions we’re being asked:
Nothing. Nada. Zip. This is a free initiative – we’re not selling the sanitiser. Instead, we’re funding it personally to help our little part of the world battle a devastating pandemic.
Just like our fellow distilleries, we’re trying to help as many organisations as possible, so that includes frontline public services, primary care providers, medical professionals, charities and many, many more who find themselves in critical need.
However, following advice yesterday from Police Scotland, we have taken the decision not to put your safety at risk and send out individual members of the public.
At the moment we have volunteer help from the police and fire services in supplying direct to other critical care and essential frontline service providers.
Thank you again for volunteering to help, you’re a blooming lovely bunch of folk, and we are sending you all a big virtual hug!
Love Team Leith Gin
We are a very small company, but we’ll continue to do our bit until we’ve exhausted all our supplies.
Yes – due to supply chain issues, we’re still currently short of around 8,500 containers. We specifically need 200ml and 500ml plastic bottles with pump-action tops to deliver a controlled dosage and prevent wastage.
If you are a company who can supply these, please contact us urgently. We will PAY for them if necessary, not looking to scrounge freebies, although donations are very, very welcome.
Only if they are of the specification above.
For a multitude of reasons we currently cannot accept anything else. When other distillers pitch in, they may be able to accept alternative sizes and glass bottles.
Again, we will update as soon as we know more.
Unfortunately not, and we’re not allowed to give you any to take away to decant yourself. Please don’t knock on our door and ask – we’re not open to the public even under normal circumstances. Please don’t pester or visit other distillers either.
For the moment we’re concentrating purely on sourcing supplies and making sanitiser, so we don’t have time to throw distribution into the mix. We will post further distribution information at a later date, please follow us on social media platforms, Facebook/Instagram and Twitter for this info. For the avoidance of any doubt, we will NOT be distributing from our own premises under any circumstances.
Finally, thanks for your patience and understanding at this time – your support is very much appreciated.
