£76,000 of free hand sanitiser made available for Scottish hospitality reopening


A drinks industry partnership has seen the production of more than 11,000 bottles of hand sanitiser made available for hospitality businesses as they prepare to reopen from Monday 26 April in line with government guidance. The 500ml bottles were produced by Tennent Caledonian Breweries (TCB) and the Glasgow Distillery Company (GDC) as part of ongoing support for the on trade.

5,500 litres of TCB X GDC branded hand sanitiser, worth more than £76,000, will be made available for Tennent Caledonian customers via their sales managers and will be included with deliveries as venues across the country get ready to welcome consumers back for the first time in months.

The move is the latest addition to TCB’s ongoing support for Scotland’s on-trade over the last year, including swapping old-for-new kegs, creating payment holidays and providing customers with guidance on applying for the various government support initiatives, among others.

Kenny Gray, Managing Director at Tennent Caledonian Breweries, said:

“Our usually vibrant hospitality industry has taken a beating over the past year and that’s been heart breaking to see. Coming together with the Glasgow Distillery Company has allowed us to explore another avenue of assistance for our customers, building on the support we have provided throughout the pandemic and will continue to provide as the on trade gets ready to ramp back up.”
