Echlinville Distillery Hand Sanitiser

The Echlinville Distillery has joined the fight against Coronavirus by switching production to hand santiser. Our sanitiser is 75% alcohol and is produced using the World Health Organisation’s formulation. We are prioritising inquiries from frontline services, particularly health and social care.


Wholesale inquiries should be directed to or call 028 427 38597.


We are receiving a high volume of inquiries, so please bear with us and we will respond as soon as possible.

We can not sell hand sanitiser directly to the public.
