Last week Deeside Distillery announced they would be transforming surplus spirit into hand sanitiser.
A statement released yesterday said they had been “completely overwhelmed” by the number of groups who had been in contact with them, and that they were working to ensure “frontline and primary care providers have stocks, including nurseries, schools, care homes and medical centres”.
