Ramsbury Brewery Switches Production to Make Hand Sanitiser

Over the last couple of months, Ramsbuy Distillery has switched production to alcohol hand sanitiser to help with current shortages and support the local community in Wiltshire and surrounding areas.

Using their base ethanol spirit, which is produced from wheat grown, milled and distilled on the Ramsbury Estate, with the addition of hydrogen peroxide and glycerine, they have been able to make large quantities of sanitiser quickly and consistently as a response to the increased demand.

“We followed the WHO recommended formula to create this liquid hand sanitiser at 78% abv to ensure that we have a highly effective product in breaking down and killing viruses and bacteria on your hands or hard surfaces when applied,” explains Alistair Ewing, Group Manager, Ramsbury Estates. “As the base spirit is made using raw ingredients from our estate, it means our supply is not limited to buying any of the spirit in. Therefore, as long as we can keep distilling, we will keep producing the sanitiser.”

Initially, the product was prioritised to supply local NHS, key workers and those on the front line to keep those who are working so hard for us all, safe too. But the team has since been working around the clock to produce larger quantities of sanitiser so that it is also available to the general public.

“As we begin to see businesses looking to re-open, with various industries starting to ease into operation, we have the capacity to provide for the increased demand in sanitiser which there will inevitably be,” continues Alistair. “Whether it’s an essential for work stations, or to keep in the car, the home or in your handbag, we now have 250ml atomiser spray bottles available which are a convenient size for personal use.”

In addition, 5L refills can also be purchased for those requiring a larger quantity from ramsburybrewery.co.uk.

For the team at Ramsbury, it has been very much about doing the right thing. They have the facilities and materials to make such an essential product and hope that during this uncertain time they can do our bit to help.
