“PLEASE NOTE THIS PRODUCT IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR RETAIL SALES. 100% OF THE PRODUCT IS BEING USED FOR FRONTLINE HEALTH SERVICES. PLEASE SIGN UP BELOW FOR UPDATES”
Underground Spirits has halted all production of all spirits, to focus solely on production of hand sanitiser for use by frontline medical staff in the ACT in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
This week Underground stopped production of our gin and vodka to dedicate our distillery 100% to the production of hand sanitiser. We are working with the ACT Government to ensure that frontline medical staff in the ACT are serviced during this critical time as shortages are apparent. Our sanitiser will go to health carers who need it most including GPs, doctors, nurses, theatre staff, Emergency Services ACT and all health services.
Dr. Angstmann said that they have already pushed out a significant quantity of sanitiser, over one thousand litres, and that they are producing around the clock. The sanitiser is being produced and sold at cost. He says he has confidence that the Government’s plan for distribution will work, ensuring the sanitiser goes out to those who need it most.
At the moment, we cannot produce enough hand sanitiser fast enough to sell it to retail customers as well, and health care professionals are our priority. If we get to a point where we can sell to our customers, Canberrans will be the first to get their hands on it.
