SRUC graduate produces hand sanitiser for local community

A former student of Scotland’s Rural University and College (SRUC) is supporting the national effort against the COVID-19 by using his gin distillery to manufacture hand sanitiser to combat the spread of the virus.

Niall Macalister Hall, who set up Beinn an Tuirc Distillers in Kintyre, has stopped all gin production at the distillery and is instead making sanitiser for his local community. The new product has been named ‘Hogg Wash’, a tribute to the distillery’s name in English.

Watch a video of Niall discussing the new ‘Hogg wash’ below.
