Hand 2 Hand

ShelterBox and Salcombe Distilling Co. have partnered to help protect our staff and volunteers from coronavirus.

Inspired by the coastal vitality of Salcombe and its shipbuilding heritage for exotic trading routes, Salcombe Distilling Co. creates exceptional spirits at its waterside distillery on Island Street, Salcombe; one of the world’s only distilleries directly accessible by boat.

Every drop of Salcombe Gin is distilled with an unrivalled passion, care and attention to detail.

When the coronavirus crisis first started, Salcombe Distilling Co. set about producing their own hand sanitiser, which they donated to local health care and public services.

After receiving an amazing response from frontline workers across the nation, and as government restrictions are eased, they received a number of requests from consumers and businesses across the UK for their hand sanitiser.

We’re launching ‘Safe Harbour’ to not only help protect businesses and consumers as lockdown is lifted, but also to support those less fortunate around the world who need it the most.

Safe Harbour

Salcombe Distilling Co., has launched its new hand sanitiser ‘Safe Harbour’, crafted and blended according to the World Health Organisation’s approved formula, with the addition of Macedonian juniper, red grapefruit and wild coastal botanicals.

In partnership with ShelterBox, the distillery has set up the ‘Hand 2 Hand’ campaign helping those around the world who need it most, by donating 100ml of ‘Safe Harbour’ hand sanitiser to ShelterBox staff and volunteers, with the purchase of every 100ml bottle.

The ‘Safe Harbour’ donated to ShelterBox from Salcombe Distilling Co. will be used by the our volunteers and staff, to help prevent the further spread of the virus and help them continue to provide shelter to those in need in places like Syria, the Philippines, Ethiopia and Vanuatu.

Right now, this fantastic support from Safe Harbour at Salcombe Distilling Co. will help keep our staff and volunteers safe.
