    County Durham firm’s hand sanitiser in new Covid collection

    A SAMPLE of hand sanitiser produced by a County Durham distillery, which switched production from gin at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, will feature in a museum collection.

    WL Distillery’s hand sanitiser will join other historic items in the Science Museum Group’s Covid-19 Collecting Project to provide insights into the medical and scientific advancements of the last two years.

    The award-winning firm of South Hetton was one of the first independent distilleries to switch production. It saw their sanitiser distributed to organisations across the region including foodbanks, Grace House, Sunderland Samaritans, schools and NHS staff.
