Now Providing Hand Sanitising Spray to Frontline Services

Now Providing Hand Sanitising Spray to Frontline Services.

Please email

At times like these, we all should step up and do our part. As of today, Summerhall Distillery will switch our available resources to the production of hand sanitising spray.

We have developed the spray to supply this product at cost, direct into the supply chain of frontline services- such as the NHS, emergency services, schools, and care homes- to sanitise surfaces and keep their workers safe.

We currently have no plans to retail this directly either via our website or our distillery. For the safety of our team, please DO NOT come to Summerhall Distillery looking to buy the product- even if you are a representative of a frontline service.

Instead, please send us an email to We will be prioritising initial orders to supply the most in need.

Why at cost? As a small distillery with limited financial resources, we want to ensure that we can sustain this supply of sanitising spray into the months coming. This is not a marketing gimmick and we’re not in this for a quick buck. We want to do our bit to bolster the supply chain and ensure that frontline services can keep themselves and others safe at this worrying time.

In the meantime, we would like to reassure our customers that we have ample stocks of our gin made and ready to go and will be selling from our website. In order that we can prioritise the production of the sanitiser, all deliveries (including those within the Edinburgh City Bypass) will now by shipped by Parcel Force.

We are proud to be stepping up, like so many other of our peers in the Scottish distilling industry to make products when people need them most.
